Nicaragua SHB EP Jinotega

Our first 2014/15 Nicaraguan offering - after supreme shortages and lack of quality from Nic last year we are glad this first mill offering came in nicely. A good prep and screen and a very clean smooth going cup. The more boutique Nics are still around 6-8 weeks away but for you Central American fans looking for a pretty mild, sweet and smooth cup, this is going to be a winner. 

Tasting Notes:
This is a medium bodied smooth cup of coffee with a silky texture. The mixture of smokiness, sweetness, a hint of chocolate and floral tones in the aroma lures you in. There are a lot of great flavors going on in this cup and when you have your first sip you’re going to want a moment to take it all in. The cup starts with some smoke, nuts, and sweetness - hints of caramel. The middle has just enough grapefruit tones to wake up your taste buds and then finishes with dark chocolate that lingers on your tongue. A great morning cup of coffee.

Roasting Notes:
This is a great bean for some experimenting with roasting profiles although we would avoid anything at either extreme (not too light and not too dark) this is pretty much great at everything in between. Light side you will have more brightness and floral tones in the cup and on the darker side you will enhance the chocolate and sweet notes.

Kenya AA Kiamabara

Kenya Nyeri Kiamabara GrainPro coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Kiamabara Factory (wet mill) in Nyeri County, Kenya. The Mugaga Farmers Co-operative Society manages the Kiamabara Factory, which processes coffee from members who generally cultivate approximately 250 coffee trees on half-acre plots.

Tasting Notes:
This is an excellent classically bright Kenyan with great body even at a lighter roast. There are herbal hints and notes of black walnut in this cup. A very bright cup, sweet, and clean as can be - an excellent example of a top notch Kenyan. The AA screen on this coffee is very nice - known as a top lot - this is the nicest screen from this operation.

Roasting Notes:
Medium roast makes the brightness cleaner and more balanced with the molasses coming through. We prefer it just into 2nd crack to highlight the molasses flavor.

Indonesian RFA Org. Balinese Kintamani Natural

A very unique overly fermented (very fruity) cup of joe. Closer to a natural Ethiopian than other Indonesian coffee. 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. New 2014/15 crop!

Tasting Notes:
The cup is extraordinarily exotic and unique with a rich, buttery mouthfeel, while retaining Indonesia’s full-bodied, savory character. It features super-intense, brandyish fruit flavors of plum and sweet cherry at lighter roasts; darker roasts develop much heavier body with a spicy, smoky twist.

Roasting Notes:
An easy roaster that’s exceptionally versatile, roast Bali “Kitamani Natural” any way you’d like; slow or quick, from first crack to French, you’ll get very unique and terrific flavor!

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 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.

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.
