Costa Rican SHB EP La Pastora

Tarrazu coffees are grown in altitudes over 3,900 feet, allowing them to be designated SHB-single hard bean, the highest classification in the Costa Rican system.  Grown in rich volcanic soil and high altitude make this one the finest coffees in the world.

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. 

Tasting Notes: 
The aroma is floral and sweet like honey.  A nice medium bodied, smooth & creamy cup of coffee with little stronger floral aspect and medium brightness (gets a good lemongrass tone at lighter roast points).  It starts with a crisp darker chocolate note, hints of a soft fruit note, and finishes with a pleasantly surprising spiciness.  This is a savory cup of coffee with wonderful complexities.

Roasting Notes: 
Best at a medium to dark roast.  Lighter you will you will pick up more acidic notes, at a medium (city +) you will taste the great complexities that you may loose if roasted too dark.  Would make a wonderful espresso but great as a drip brew.

Bolivian Org. Caranavi SHB EP - ML - Chojnampampa

An awesome new ML and a stellar cup - one you Central and South American fans wont want to miss. 

This organic certified SHB EP quality coffee comes the Chojñampampa coffee producer colony within the Caranavi region of Bolivia. It is a blend of 70% Caturra and 30% Typica varieties. Chojñampampa is a small colony where around 20 families produce coffee. Each of them cultivates between 1-5 hectares of coffee. It is a new colony and their members are eager to learn more about coffee. The soil in the region is very rich and healthy. 

This is the top pick from the area, perfect screen and prep - definitely a lot more depth of flavor and well above average sweetness than any Bolivian we have had through our doors before.

Tasting Notes:
Very bright, sweet, crisp and clean - Amazing for a S American coffee. A soft fruity cherry note balanced with a milky chocolate tone. 

Roasting Notes: 

Very bright at the light roast points, if your a Kenyan or Ethiopian fan try it a little lighter, most will love it a bit more at a full city roast, develops more of the light fruit tone versus chocolate and mellows out some of the acidity - good at the dark roast as well but burns out a lot of the lighter cup characteristics. You can see its a bit two toned, the Caturra darkens up a bit quicker than the Typica, this is a good thing but make sure the lighter beans are through first crack for the lighter roast points.

Brazil Bob-O-Link  Nature Friendly  Natural PB (Mokka)

New 2014/15 Crop!! A bit delayed upon its arrival but well worth the wait! 

This is a Mokka style, smaller natural peaberry. This is one unique and very tasty Brazil. Brazil Peaberries are rare, and this offering is even rarer. This could very well be the only Mokka style peaberry out of Brazil. 

Tasting Notes: A very unique cup of Brazil and always one of my favorites! Medium bodied - sweet with a little bit of acidity (especially for a Brazil) - This cup holds true to the Mokka profile; nice crisp fruit tones balanced with a bakers chocolate undertone - very nice! Crisp, clean and fresh as can be. 

Roasting Notes: This coffee is a very versatile roaster but very different from light to dark, a little lighter will accentuate the fruity acidic notes and sweetness of the cup but the darker chocolate notes will just be a hint - right before the second crack was perfectly balanced and nice - darker roasts will be a lot stronger and less fruity of a cup but has nice chocolate tones and still very enjoyable.

2014 Mexican Terruno Nayarita NATURAL Reserve

This is a farm that holds a special place in our hearts.  This coffee is from 100% traceable, directly traded microlots. Each bag is uniquely identified with a bar code and a serial number.  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 top screen-size/grade from the Terruno Nayarita Co-op. This is the new 2015 crop! Used and won as a single origin espresso in the Mexican barista championship

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.

Tasting Notes: 
A very unique Mexican offering; the processing leaves it closer to a Natural Ethiopian than other Mexican/Central American coffees. 

The Mexicans always taste best fresh as can be, I will tell you; it doesn't get any fresher than this! The aroma is a wondrous mix of sweet berries and buttery nuts.  This cup is medium bodied with a smooth finish.   a bit of a dry baker’s chocolate, candied sweetness, bright acidity, berries and orange make this an outstanding cup of coffee.


Roasting Notes:
You can see the quality in the beans. We recommend a medium roast on this coffee to bring out all the remarkable characters of this cup.  Roasted lighter you will get a more fruity cup and brighter acidity.  Roasted darker and the chocolate notes will be more pronounced.

From the highest altitudes of Mexico, this is what we regularly drink around here.

Brazil Mogiana 17/18

The Cooperativa de Cafeicultores e Agropecuaristas (COCAPEC) was founded on July 11, 1985. COCAPEC started its activities with almost 300 members in its first year of operations and today COCAPEC has over 2,000 members. COCAPEC is renowned in this coffee-growing region for its technical support and natural drying methods. The cooperative’s technical department works in partnership with its members to guarantee consistent coffee quality. Currently, the High Mogiana region has an average annual production of more than one million bags of coffee, of which 85% is high quality beans produced at optimum altitude and temperature.

Tasting notes:
The aroma is very nutty and sweet.  There was a surprising hint of smoke on the palate.  Full bodied and clean this is a traditional tasting Brazil - thick, creamy, nutty and sweet. At the darker roasts a very sweet first taste, almost a little fruity quickly turns darker toned in a bakers chocolate to slight toasted walnut. Hints of molasses and caramel can be found.

Great blend base for espresso or to add body and darker tones - many will love it as a S/O drinker.

Roasting Notes:
A pretty versatile bean, although we wouldn’t recommend a light roast.  Medium roast will highlight more of the fresh dark semi fruity tones but darker roasted will bring out the smoky and chocolate notes that most will shoot for.  This would be a great bean for blends.
