Costa Rican SHB EP La Palma Co-op

A great new 2016 Costa offering! 

Our Costa Rica La Palma coffee is produced by Cooperativa de Caficultores y de Servicios Múltiples de Palmares, COOPEPALMARES, R. L., a cooperative founded in 1962 with over 1,450 members from Palmares, a canton in the province of Alajuela, Costa Rica. COOPEPALMARES has a state of the art processing facility with certifications in quality and environmental management from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The wet mill utilizes recycled water and the mechanical dryers (guardiolas) recirculate airflow to maximize furnace efficiency. The facility also has an organic fertilizer production plant and a water treatment plant. COOPEPALMARES operates two supermarkets in Palmares and sells roasted coffee for national consumption. Coop members have access to low interest loans and healthcare for their families at the coop-run health center and mobile clinic. 

Tasting Notes: 
Very well balanced cup - a bit on the less acidic side for Costa - going more after the chocolaty floral fuller bodied and sweet cup. A very classic example of a premium Costa - similar to the La Pastora but a bit sweeter and smoother. Right at the full city mark it picks up a brown sugar sweetness that is pretty unique and very tasty. A great everyday drinker - not too extreme in any manner.

Roasting Notes: 
Best at a medium to dark roast.  Lighter you will you will pick up less defined darker tones and a bit of acidic grassyness, medium roast will bring very clean tones and well defined chocolaty floral factor. Dark roasts get much thicker and creamier while still being on the sweet side but this bean will also pick up decent roasty notes.

2016 Honduran SHG EP Santa Rosa Co-op

New 15/16 crop. 

The Santa Rosa Co-op was featured at this years SCAA is Atlanta - it was a joy meeting with 10-15 of their headliner producers. You could tell this co-op meant the world to them and really helps improve their standard of living while giving them the toolset to make some stellar beans. Although i really enjoyed meeting them - one could tell it was a once in a lifetime trip for them.

Our Honduras Santa Rosa SHG EP is sourced from small community cooperatives working together with Beneficio Santa Rosa, located in Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras.  Beneficio Santa Rosa was founded in 2005 to facilitate the commercialization and export of high quality coffee from the western region of Honduras. Through an innovative partnership with TechnoServe (a nonprofit organization that develops business solutions to overcome poverty by linking people to information, capital and markets), Beneficio Santa Rosa formed Mejoramiento Agrícola Sostenible (MAS), a project that supports more than 6,000 coffee producers with technical assistance resulting in higher quality coffee and increased income for producers, while protecting the environment. Beneficio Santa Rosa is also firmly invested in community development as one of the founding members of Amigos del Café, an organization established to assist coffee producers with education, medical assistance and food security.

Tasting Notes:
This cup very smooth, rich and clean. fuller bodied and lower acidity the main tone is going to be pretty chocolaty - a deep semi-sweet chocolate smokey note balanced with just a hint of a floral aspect. This Honduran is a sweet, balanced, clean coffee with a nice spice note and slight wineyness at the lighter roasts. 

A very nice single origin breakfast coffee - smooth, mellow and chocolaty a great cup to wake up to. 

Roasting Notes:
An easy and versatile coffee to roast, medium to dark. A faster roast will highlight the bright, clean flavor notes.

Guatemalan Acatenango Premium Flat Don Julio

 

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

Part of our premium flat line of Guats, the prep is amazing and the complexity of the cup is well above average. 

A newer coffee region as of 10 years ago. The cherry used to be funneled to Antigua or Atitlán to be processed. As a new region, a larger wet mill built and operated by Cafcom was put in Acatenango for local farmers to bring their cherry. This practice is NOT common in most other growing regions in Guatemala. 

Julio (whom this coffee is named after) oversees ALL of the parcels of the family farm and this lot is composed of the highest grades from 10 of his brothers and sisters lots.

Tasting Notes:
A great and tasty Guat from a more unique region. Similar to an Antigua coffee it is very balanced and floral with very smooth and nice chocolaty tones. A little higher acidity than most standard guats one will get a little more soft fruit and lemon grass at lighter roast points. A stronger cup especially around 2nd crack - much fuller bodied and chocolaty than its Huehue cousins. 

Roasting Notes:
Easy to roast - awesome prep on these beans; 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.

Tanzanian Kilimanjaro Estate PB Plus

New 2015/16 crop!

Tanzania Kilimanjaro Estate Peaberry Plus coffee is sourced from a family-owned estate located in the Karatu district, Tanzania. The lowest and highest elevations in all of Africa, the floor of Lake Tanganyika (352 meters below sea level) and Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895 meters above sea level) are both located in Tanzania.  Between these commanding landmarks, Kilimanjaro Estate coffee is cultivated on the rim of the Ngorongoro crater, which is the largest unbroken caldera in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  More than 25,000 wild animals, including the largest population of lions, make their home within the crater walls.  The rounder shaped peaberry, formed from the rare maturation of one seed per cherry rather than the typical two seeds, is meticulously sorted during the milling process for its distinct flavor profiles.  

Tasting Notes:

An awesome prime time lot of Tanz PB - Fresh as can be and a very clean cup. Chocolaty at any roast point but a lot of interesting charecter to the cup when taken to just touching 2nd crack or lighter. Pretty bright compared to other Tanz coffees but still a bit behind a Kenyan. The brighter aspect of this cup gives a lot of sweetness, little hint of lemongrass and a bit of a darker fruit note. This is all balanced nicely with a very spicy chocolate undertone. 

Roasting Notes: 
We like this coffee at a medium to dark roast. Try extending the roast at the light to medium roast points to build a little more body and undertones.

Papua New Guinea Nebilyer Valley A/X

Coffee has been cultivated in the Nebilyer Valley for over 40 years, and the bulk of it originates from small holders.

Previously, the valley has been explosive because clans and tribes have been at war. However, with the addition of coffee cultivation, the region has become less hostile. This specific coffee is a product of a multitude of small holders’ crops originating in many different villages and clans throughout the valley. The cherries produced by the small holders are taken to the Korgua wet factory—they use a wet processing, sun drying method.

Tasting Notes: Pretty sweet and fuller bodied, rich and clean, this lot of Papua New Guinea Nebilyer Valley is a bit brighter, sweeter, medium-bodied version of the deep-toned, heavy Indonesian cup. Nebilyer Valley features sweet cocoa and nutty flavor in place of Indonesia’s more typical forest and earth note. It also has soft accents of deliciously spicy-sweet floral and jammy citrus tones (at lighter roasts) mixing well with a spicy aroma.

Roasting Notes: These beans respond best to relatively quick, medium to dark roasts. Roasts up to the start of second crack will deliver a great combination: African-style sweet cocoa and jammy fruit flavors; mouth-filling Indonesian body and savory aroma.

2016 Hawaiian Maui Washed Typica

New 2016 crop! Maui was saving the best for the last arrival!

This is the by far the cleanest and borderline sweetest cup out of all the Maui offerings, not quite as acidic as the Red washed and a bit smoother and more delicate than the Yellow washed.

Typica is the traditional strain used for fancy Kona coffees, although this offering is not quite as complex as the $20+ Konas, it is one tasty cup and a very great value considering price versus taste - an awesome cup we are very glad to offer you. 

Maui Kaanpali Estate is a unique Hawaiian coffee.  The beans are grown by MauiGrown Coffee at Ka‘anapali Estate in the West Maui highlands.  

The 500-acre estate is a former State/private project that used coffee to diversify Maui’s sugar plantations.  It performed extensive field trials to find Arabicas that grow best in the soil, altitude and climate, while providing the best cup quality and yields.  MauiGrown grows the 4 best Arabica types from those field trials: Maui Mokka, Yellow Caturra, Red Catuai and Typica.

Tasting Notes:
A very floral sweet aroma will perk you right up and give you the initial island premium characteristic. The cup is medium bodied, fairly low acidity and rich. A strong semi-sweet caramel tone will be the predominate flavor but you do get hints of light fruit and crispness at the lighter roast points and a little hint of a smokey molasses at the darker roast points. 

Roasting Notes:
I would shoot for just before the second crack - will give you a very smooth and sweet cup - lower acidity with a very floral aroma; accentuating the sweet caramel type cup. Lighter will be more crisp and floral but one does take the risk of getting underdeveloped grassy type notes - Darker roast will be tasty as well but not quite as sweet and add a little bit of a smokiness to the cup.

Panama Natural Hi-U - Graciano Cruz - Finca Los Jurutungo - Caturra Lot E

This is one tasty coffee and well worth the extra pennies but be aware, this is an old world natural processing with some tweaks to make the screen a bit cleaner than normal - it will roast slightly uneven, is a little browner in color and a variety of shades - it is produced to look like this and if your a natural fan, where the buck stops.

Farming coffee is a life style in many different ways. Mainly it depends on the farmer’s spirit, call it the coffee spirit. Coming from a family that belonged to the founders of Boquete village more than 100 years ago, coffee has always been around him.

Graciano has always been extremely passionate about agricultural science. Every day he is learning something new about the plants, soils and interrelations in each environment. "It is like watching a movie in four dimensions instead of 3D. Experiencing and feeling the myriad facets of the nature around me made me become an organic coffee farmer." The first officially certified in Panama.

While studying coffee economics and marketing, Graciano developed, with the help of many friends, a coffee concept that begins at the end of the client’s discerning palates and ends at the coffee trees at his farms.

Tasting Notes: 
This is a way cool coffee but a bit hard to describe for its taste night and day different depending on roast level - Lighter spectrum roasts give a strong acidity, lots of fruit and sweetness, some tea like floral attributes and a hint of a chocolate undertone, a bit front loaded at lighter roasts but very tasty - medium to border line dark roasts change the cup to very chocolaty and a bit fuller bodied with just a hint of lemony citrus and a little lingering fruit in the after taste - very balanced and sweet and most likely what i would shoot for - darker roasts are not fruity but super chocolaty, into 2nd crack starts to reduce sweetness of the cup a little and adds a bit of roasty notes but this compliments the chocolaty aspect. 

Roasting Notes: 
Lighter roast points make sure to let it set up for 2-4 days before drinking, really mellows out the brightness and makes for a smoother much more complex cup. Medium to dark roasts set up much quicker but still 24 hours is recommended. Make sure to try this coffee at a variety of roasts, small flavors will keep popping up and be sure to wow most.

Decaffeinated Guatemalan SHB MWP

Guatemalan coffees are always some of our favorites! 

This is a very fresh new crop Guat offerings, freshness in processing is always key in tasty decafs. 

Processed via the MWP method - Mountain Water Processing this is part of the Royal Select line of decafs, which only use premium screens and lots instead of the usually "leftovers" that commercial coffee uses. 

Tasting Notes:
A little darker toned but smooth and rich cup of Decaf. Malty tones with a little floral aspect are the main tones but one can also see hints of a chocolaty factor and a little spice. 

Roasting Notes:
Decafs roast more quickly, so keep an eye on it the first time. A versatile roaster, take it medium to dark for a nice crisp cup.
