Guatemalan Fraijanes Premium Flat
Finca De Dios ML "Revelaciones 2"

An awesome super fresh ML Guat offering. Buddies with our friend Edwin this is one cool farm and an awesome tasting microlot.

Tasting Notes:

A little thinner bodied than our traditional Huehue lots but the tones are real similar - light roasts produce a lot of floral brightness and light fruit notes (almost reminicent of a nice Costa) mixing with a subtle very sweet malty note - a great morning brew - darker roasts will produce more body similar to the Huehues - very clean non roasty dark-roast beans - you get a lot of the sweet malty tones and very smooth even decently into 2nd crack - a very stand up bean at almost any roast level.

Roasting Notes:
Easy to roast; you’ll get a great cup at most roast levels. Lighter roasts accent the fruitier brightness, deeper levels deliver smooth, rich chocolate malty flavors and a hint of smokiness - awesome and clean dark roast notes.


Similar to Edwins farm, De Dios is a model of sustainability and treats its workers better than 99% of other farms in the region; providing education, infrastructure and medical care.

Almost forty years ago, a horse lover bought the farm with the intent of lodging his horses. A few years later, he was transferred because of work reasons. His daughter, who remained in Guatemala, was left in charge of the farm. She started to tend the few hectares of coffee that the farm had and planted most of the farm with coffee, with the exception of the natural forests.

Two years ago, after inheriting her piece of the original farm, she proceeded to name it Finca de Dios, in memory of her father who had dedicated his land to God. Since then they have been building the necessary infrastructure, which her part did not have, including a wet mill. Even though small in comparison to most of the big coffee farms, we agree with the saying that says that some of the best things in life come in small packages.

Indonesian RFA Org. Balinese Blue Moon

The new 2014 crop is in and very tasty!

The Semi-Washed version of the Bali Kintamani Natural!

Bali is a tiny island– actually, a submerged volcano peak - just off the east coast of Java, with many small coffee farms.  The farmers who grow Kintamani Natural belong to cooperative organizations known as Subak Abian (SA) founded on a Hindu philosophy known as “Tri Hita Karana” (the three causes of happiness).  SA co-ops foster community in agricultural, social and religious activities, and have been certified Organic since 2008. Pesticides are never used on their coffee farms, and fertilizers are 100% organic.
  
SA farmers grow almost all heirloom Arabicas, Typica & Bourbon.  They use trees such as Erythrina, Tangerine, and Orange to shade the coffee, which improves yield and cup quality and enhances wildlife habitat.

Tasting Notes:
A very rich, clean, and smooth cup with a hint sweet lemon acidity balanced with a nice chocolaty finish. Medium to full bodied with low acidity, a nice daily cup. Hints of a slight smoky tones can be found, especially in a darker roast.

Roasting Notes:
I like to take this one to a full city. It is very versatile and will hold almost any roast.

Rwanda Akagera Bourbon

First new crop arrival!

Rwanda Akagera Bourbon GrainPro is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the COCAMU cooperative located in the Kirehe district of Rwanda. COCAMU was established in 2007 and currently has 582 members, 224 of whom are women. COCAMU provides fertilizer to sustain coffee quality and yield, and maintains a health insurance program to improve access to medical cares.

Tasting Notes:
A little fuller bodied and very clean for most Rwanda coffees - the first arrival for the new 2014 crop. Bourbon coffees are unique and produced in many different countries but when they really shoot for a nice single strain offering they are always high on my list - Some good sweetness upfront and a nice winey tone like a Guat Huehue. This lot has a cool molasses brown sugar like quality with a nice spice note that will not be found in many other origins. Similar to many Tanzanian and Kenyan coffees. 

Roasting Notes:

I would avoid the lighter roast points, a little acidic with grassy underdeveloped tones - Right before the 2nd crack was our favorite roast, kept the balance between light and dark tones - gets a little rough around the edges darker but many strong coffee fans will like it into the 2nd crack.

Indian RFA Arabidecool 
Estate


New 2014 crop!

Sprawling 142 hectares across the famed Baba Budangiri Mountains of the Karnataka State lies the picturesque Arabidacool Estate. On these ranges, the first coffee plants were grown from the seven seeds brought back from Yemen by a Sufi Saint, Baba Budan, while returning from a pilgrimage to Mecca. Arabidacool’s salubrious climate and excellent environment are reflected in a coffee with a distinct cup, characterized by sharp acidity, excellent flavor and a sweet taste. 

Tasting Notes:
A great micro produced Indian coffee - very similar to the mysore nuggets, this is a little bit of a cleaner screen and a bit more crispness in the cup - good spice notes along with just a bit of a floral tone. There’s dark fruit, oak, licorice, and some vanilla tones, like a good dry red wine.  The finish has a subdued brightness to it with just hints of lemon zest.  The body is medium to full depending on roast and brew.

Roasting Notes:
We recommend roasting this bean at a medium to dark roast.  Too light and the wood tones would be too dominate, too dark you will loose its pleasant brightness

2014 Mexican Org. Terruno Nayarita Washed Reserve

This is a farm that holds a special place in our hearts. Gathered around an extinct volcano, Cerro San Juan, a committed group of 260 cooperative coffee farmers are working together to produce arguably the best coffee in Mexico. Terruño Nayarita coffees come from heirloom trees and the word ‘Terruño’ means ‘homestead’. These are farmers that take great pride in their coffee. This is the new 2013 crop! Used and won as a single origin espresso in the Mexican barista championship This is the top screen-size/grade from the Terruno Nayarita Co-op. San Christobal Importers takes great care to find and produce an excellent coffee, making sure farmers use safe, sustainable shade techniques and provide a fair wage to the workers. Check out their webpage; San Christobal. You can see the quality in the beans. Lighter bodied, a super smooth finish, a hint of brightness, and a sweet caramel tone. Similar in character to Island coffees. Can be roasted up to a full city +, we think its best a little lighter.

Tasting Notes:
A very cool and unique Mexican coffee. A little fuller bodied than most years, good sweetness and a bit of a floral caramel note. A bit lower acidity than previous crops which tends to make it shine at a little fuller roast level. The caramel notes tend to turn a bit more chocolaty close to the second crack.

Roasting Notes:
I would shoot for right before the second crack to just into it - a little bit of a rougher cup into second crack but nice chocolate notes with just a hint of a floral aspect. A bit sweeter and smoother right before the second crack but not quite as chocolaty.

Kenyan Murang'a Wanjengi Peaberry

Kenya Muranga Wanjengi Peaberry coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Wanjengi Factory (wet mill) located in Murang'a County, Kenya, a growing region in the fertile foothills of Mount Kenya. The Wanjengi Factory processes coffee from farmers who generally have half-acre plots averaging 250 coffee trees. Farmers are members of the Kahuhia Cooperative Society, which has its own dry mill operation in the town of Wanjengi, located in Murang'a County, Kenya.

Fully washed and dried in raised beds.

Tasting Notes: A very nice classically toned Kenyan coffee. This cup carries the bright tones normally found in a nice AA bean, very citrusy and floral. It definitely has a strong balanced bakers chocolate undertone with a couple quick herbal notes in-between. A little fuller bodied for a Kenyan - a very nice strong cup most African drinkers will love. 

Roasting Notes: Anything but a light roast will be pretty tasty - I found right before the 2nd crack at a little slower roast was my favorite but with this cup, your love for acidity will dictate how to roast it - love acidity? quick and light to medium will bring your desired tones, don't love acidity? Take it to 2nd crack at a little slower.
