Colombian Narino Supremo

Colombian Flag

This Colombian Narino is sourced from small family owned farms in the growing region in the department of Nariño, Colombia. The main harvest is between April to August, and the “mitaca” harvest is between December and February. Small coffee producers pick and process their coffee at their own micro-wet mills and then dry their own coffee, typically on elevated tables inside solar dryers that provide protection from the rain.

Tasting Notes:
The state of Narino really produces that classic Colombian profile. Fuller bodied and darker toned with low acidity, the main tones coming from this cup will be toasted walnut mixing with a chocolaty undertone. A little bit of acidity can be found at light roast points but we recommend a medium to dark roast on this bean.

Roasting Notes:
A very easy to roast bean. Supremo is a strictly large screen so all the beans are pretty well matched and it roasts nice and even. Being a lower acidity coffee a quicker roast is nice, retains a little more sweetness upfront. Medium to dark roast bean.

Papua New Guinea Org. Siane Chimbu A/X

Papua New Guinea Flag

Papua New Guinea Org. Siane Chimbu A/X is sourced from farms organized around the Siane Organic Agriculture Cooperative (SOAC) located in the Chuave district within the province of Chimbu, Papua New Guinea. SOAC accesses the international coffee markets for farmers, creating greater earning capacity from direct trade relationships. SOAC also assist farmers with financing, coffee quality improvement, organic certification, and community based projects that promote gender equality and education.

Tasting Notes:
A little fuller bodied and darker toned cup of coffee. A small hint of an herbally earthiness (like a Sumatra) balanced with a semi-sweet chocolaty undertone. A cool floral spice aroma with a bit of spice coming through in the cup. Cleaner for a PNG coffee; a good everyday drinker. Similar to an Indonesian coffee but a bit cleaner being washed processed.

Roasting Notes:
Easy to roast, city to full city roasting to see this coffee shine - light roasts will be a little front loaded with acidity, dark roasts get a bit edgy. Anywhere in between will give a very smooth and defined cup. A quicker roast leaves it a bit sweeter and more floral while an extended roasts gives it more of a creamy body while muting up the floral aspect.

Ecuador BCT Select - Canton Of Espindola

Ecuador is a beautiful country, right on the equator with high elevations. Garry came back from Ecuador visiting some friends really wondering why we do not see more Ecuador coffee. They really have the perfect environment to produce top notch coffee. They just do not have much infrastructure for coffee.

This is our first Ecuador coffee believe it or not. We have tried a couple before but they were not high grade beans and not a good price for cup quality to put on the list. Finally we found a very tasty co-op production bean from a very cool area.

Esplanade is a canton located in the Province of Lona, Ecuador. Even though the Equator passes through Ecuador, Espíndola is located in the Southern Hemisphere and is considered one of the poorest towns in the country. This canton owes its name to the mighty river that crosses the region. Some people assure that in 1860 this region was owned by a very powerful indigenous woman called Cacica Francisca Chigua. By the early 1900s, she sold this land to very rich families, including the Eguiguren, who enslaved all of their workers and treated people and animals inhumanely. Today, when you visit this place, you will enter into a magical world with charming people. Espíndola is known for its rich nature and biodiversity of flora and fauna. Its coffee reflects the sweetness of people in the area and the beauty of its views.

Tasting Notes:
A great sweeter and mellower cup of coffee. Medium bodied with lower acidity. A bit of caramel and a soft floral aspect balancing with a nice smooth chocolaty note. Turns pretty chocolaty and a bit fuller bodied with some smoky and toasty notes into 2nd crack.

Roasting Notes:
Best balance will be found at a city plus roast, keeps just a little hint of acidity in the cup but most will enjoy it a bit more closer to 2nd crack than first, more in the full city roast range. Dark roast fans just take it a couple seconds into 2nd crack. A quicker roast is nice if possible, if you extend it out too much, it will flatten the cup character a bit more.

Kenya Nyeri Othaya Chinga AA Top Lot

Kenya Nyeri Chinga AA coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Chinga Factory (wet mill), in Nyeri County, Kenya, on the eastern slopes of the Aberdares mountain ranges. The Chinga Factory processes coffee from farmers who generally have half-acre plots averaging 250 coffee trees. Farmers are members of the Othaya Farming Cooperative Society which has its own dry mill operation in Gatuyaini.

This is one of the top cupping lots from the Chinga Mill.

Tasting Notes: Very bright, clean and floral. Medium to full bodied with a very sweet edge to it. Lighter roasts are fantastic, higher acidity but sweet with a good caramel note balancing with clean floral tones. As you go darker the body gets very full and the caramel turns much more chocolaty, even right before 2nd crack this gets very thick and dark toned - not a big need to go into 2nd crack even if you are a dark roast fan. One gets a little of that classic African herbal note at the darker roasts, still floral but very muted compared to the light roast.

Roasting Notes: Pretty easy to roast but if shooting for those lighter roasts (recommended) you will end up stopping the roast while the beans are still a little splotchy, don't go too far after the first crack. Medium roast will be when the splotchy tones on the beans are gone and dark roast will be marked by a little oil on the surface. Although we liked lighter roasts the best, we did enjoy the coffee at every roast level we tried.

Peru Organic SHB EP Apesi

Peru Flag

PERU FTO APESI coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around Agraria de Productores Ecologicos San Ignacio LTDA (APESI), which was established in 2011 to support organic coffee producers in the region of Cajamarca, Peru. APESI provides training and financing aimed at improving coffee quality and yields to increase farmer earnings. Members of APESI are also investing in other businesses like honey production, fish farms, and citrus groves to diversify sources of income during the thin months when there is no income from coffee production.

Tasting Notes:
A very cool new offering. A bit lighter toned and a bit cleaner than out average Peru on the list. Medium acidity, gives a pretty sweet and floral first sip of this coffee, a bit of crispness and nice caramel malty type undertone. Turns a bit chocolaty into the darker roasts.

Roasting Notes:
We like this coffee at a light to medium roast. Try extending the roast at the light to medium roast points to build a little more body and undertones especially if you do not like acidity. Works great at darker roasts as well but so does the slightly cheaper Peru Norte on the list.

Honduran Org. SHG EP COMSA

In the year 2000, 62 Honduran coffee farmers joined together with a common goal to transform their farms from conventional to organic production and formed COMSA (Cafe Organico Marcala, S.A). In 2001, fostered by a foundation called Funder, COMSA earned their organic certification from Bio Latina which has enabled them to market their coffee to more international buyers and realize better selling prices for their coffee. In February 2006, COMSA then applied for and was granted Fair Trade certification status. COMSA uses the Fair Trade price premium to fund many social projects including paying teachers’ salaries and purchasing school supplies.

Tasting Notes:
A nice fulled bodied and chocolaty cup of coffee. Mainly shooting for a smooth chocolate to rough dark-roast semi-sweet chocolate cup. A little hint of acidity at lighter roasts but all in all this is a strong medium roast to dark roast coffee. If you nail the roast right on, it has a very nice mellow, smooth milk-chocolate tone, a bit more sweetness upfront and a cup everyone will enjoy. Darker will gain a lot of strength but also edginess.

Roasting Notes:
An easy and versatile coffee to roast, medium to dark. Medium roast for a smooth and pretty sweet chocolaty cup, dark roasted for a more blunt in your face chocolate note. A faster roast will highlight the bright, clean flavor notes.
