New long awaited 2016 crop!
Tarrazu coffees are famed for snappy, strikingly clean flavor. Known as a "classically complete" coffee, they're crisp and medium-bodied, with tangy citrus flavor and a fine, satisfying aroma. Tarrazu cups wonderfully at all but the lightest and darkest roasts.
What is Black Honey? Its a little cleaner version of a fruity natural - technically the black is a semi-washed coffee that is closer to a fruity natural, a white honey would be a semi-washed closer to a fully washed coffee.
New 2016 Crop! A prime super fresh Kenya AA - definitely the top sort from the Kieni mill. Very crisp and clean with a ton of delicate bright notes popping out. Not too acidic compared to other less delicate Kenyans, a cup almost anyone will love - very dependent on roast.
Nicaraguan SHG RFA Selva Negra Honey
The honey processing on these beans is very close to the washed processing - very clean honey processing. It does leave it with a hint more sweetness and body but a little less acidity. Not as unqiue as some of our other honey processed coffees but very tasty indeed.
Selva Negra Estate Coffee is grown at a high altitude in a shaded environment. This allows the bean to have a slow development cycle which instills an intense and fulfilling flavor to each bean. The coffee is not only 100% Arabica, but more importantly it is grown on a large percentage of Bourbon and Typica coffee trees (which produce higher quality beans than other varieties of coffee trees). The region of Matagalpa, Nicaragua is mountainous with excellent volcanic soil for the coffee growing enjoyment. Finally, the coffee is prepared using an environmentally friendly washing process, which gives the coffee still one more unique quality enhancing aspect.
Selva Negra means the black forest - beyond the coffee trees below you can see why.
A great example of a good looking production tree and how the fruit ripens at different times - this is what makes hand picking so nessisary for good coffee.
After a hard day of picking...
Finally the reception - every afternoon of picking all the workers gather for the cherry reception - this is where the work for the day will be logged and the start of the processing for the cherry. Normally workers get paid by volume but many farms bonus on quality - too many bad/underipe beans in the pick and its bad for everyone
