Guatemalan Fraijanes Premium Flat Finca De Dios ML "Revelaciones 2"

An awesome super fresh ML Guat offering. The Finca De Dios folks are buddies with our friend Edwin. This is one cool farm and an awesome tasting microlot. Similar to Edwin's farm, De Dios is a model of sustainability and treats its workers better than 99% of other farms in the region; providing education, infrastructure and medical care.

Tasting Notes:
A little thinner bodied than our traditional Huehue lots but the tones are similar. Light roasts can produce floral brightness and light fruit notes (reminiscent of a nice Costa) mixing with a subtle very sweet malty note.

Darker roasts will produce more body similar to the Huehues - very clean non roasty dark-roast beans. You get a lot of the sweet malty tones. Very smooth even into 2nd crack.

A very stand up bean at almost any roast level!

Roasting Notes:
Easy to roast; 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.

Rwanda FT. Misozi - Kopaki

New 2014 Crop! Misozi Kopaki is grown in the Karongi District of western Rwanda by over 800 small farmers. The farmers in this area, in an effort create the best coffee possible, have pooled their coffee, resources and knowledge together by forming a cooperative they called Kopaki. After forming their coop, they joined a group of coops called Misozi to aid in the final processing and exportation of their coffee. The Misozi and Kopaki coops are proudly certified Fair Trade to guarantee transparency and fairness throughout their growing community.

Tasting Notes:
An awesome new crop Rwanda arrival - in the same ballpark as our previous Dunkendekawa offerings. Very smooth, sweet and clean with just a hint of acidity. A very nice everyday drinker and a great example of what every Rwanda should be. The sweet semi floral front notes are balanced with a nice and chocolaty undertone - at a medium roast it is very smooth delicate tones, taken darker or into 2nd crack will roughen up the cup and produce semi-sweet chocolate tones.  

Roasting Notes:
I would avoid the super light roast points, a little acidic and grassy tasting - the silky body starts to hit at a medium roast (our preferred roast) and some darker fruit and semi sweet cocoa really start to hit right before second crack. I tend to roast it a bit slower to increase the body and darker tones while still roasting before the second crack.

Ethiopian Washed Sidamo Gr. 2

According to legend, coffee was discovered in Ethiopia by a 9th century goat herder named Kaldi. When he noticed the energizing effects the bright red berries had on his flock he decided to try the berries out himself. His vitalization prompted him to bring the berries to a holy man. But the holy man disapproved of their use and threw them into a fire after which an alluring aroma wafted out. The roasted beans were quickly raked from the embers, ground up, and dissolved in hot water, creating the world's first cup of coffee. Although the story is considered legend, one thing is for sure, Ethiopian coffee is considered to be the best coffee in the world. Half of the coffee grown in Ethiopia is consumed domestically and Sidamo leads domestic consumption. Probably because Sidamo is a prime coffee growing area and most of the coffee trees are cultivated in family gardens that grow alongside the food they grow and eat. Each cherry is ripened and handpicked at its peak flavor. You can taste the quality and tradition in every cup.

Tasting Notes:
This is a great breakfast coffee. The floral and citrus aroma will perk you right up. There is wonderful gingerbread spice and lighter fruit tone - almost a grapefruity taste. It’s a pleasing syrup texture that finishes with a cheerful lemon citrus note. It’s reminiscent of a spiced lemon cookie. Wonderfully smooth, delightful complexity of spice and sweetness, this will quickly become your go to morning cup of coffee.

Roasting Notes:
We prefer this at a City Roast. It accentuates its sweetness while keeping the acidity balanced and bright. Still good at a darker roast you will experience more chocolate notes and the finish will be more winey.

Colombia Narino Supremo

Colombia Narino Excelso EP coffee comes 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:
You are really struck with the aroma of this coffee - dried fruit and brown sugar tones. A great smell to wake up to in the morning. The body is full and the texture is very smooth. There are great ripe red fruit tones, like cherries and raspberries that start small in the beginning and then burst in the middle. It finishes very clean with some sweet and nutty walnut notes.

Roasting Notes:
Like all Colombians this is a versatile bean for roasting. Darker roasts convey wonderful smoky tones and outstanding sweetness while lighter roasts will deliver a brighter cup. Be sure to try it at different roasting points to experience each distinctive flavor this coffee has to offer.

Indian Mysore Chikmagular A

New 2014 crop!

This large beaned Indian coffee is fairly similar to the Mysore Nuggets - a great example of a bold and clean big beaned Indian coffee. 

These beans are produced similarly to the Mysore Nuggets, an aggregate from the region - a lot of farmers worked real hard to bring this coffee to life - aggregated at the mill and blended by some of the best tasters in India to represent the region. 

A very fresh offering - one will notice a little more brightness than the last batch of Mysore Nuggets but that big bold cup full of spice notes will have all Indian fans smiling. 

Tasting Notes:
A great Indian coffee - similar to the Mysore nuggets, The aroma is nutty, woody, and some slight smokiness. The taste is classic.  Many of the notes in the aroma come through in the flavor like walnuts and some smoke.  There’s dark fruit, oak, licorice, and some vanilla tones, like a good dry red wine.  The finish has a subdued brightness to it with just hints of lemon zest.  The body is medium to full depending on roast and brew.  There’s a reason people keep coming back to this bean. It’s a smooth all around great cup of coffee.

Roasting Notes:
We recommend roasting this bean at a medium to dark roast.  Too light and the wood tones would be too dominate, too dark you will loose its pleasant brightness

Brazil Fazenda Aurea Natural

Our Fazenda Aurea coffee is sourced from twenty coffee farms located in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Aurea is located in Alto Paranaiba in the Cerrado Mineiro region, which is known for its optimal weather conditions for producing coffee. Producers from Fazenda Aurea have an excellent infrastructure that includes seven harvesting machines, suspended covered patios, dryer machines and mills to process natural and semi-wash coffee.

Tasting Notes: 
The aroma is nutty and sweet. The texture is very smooth and silky and the body is medium. Starts very smooth and sweet then the middle has some great bakers chocolate and citrus notes. It ends a bit dry like roasted peanuts and lingers a little.


Roasting Notes:
This coffee is easy to roast, I would avoid the real light roasts. Try extending the roast to build some body and darker tones, a shorter roast will excentuate the sweetness and crispness of the cup.

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!
