2015 Hawaiian 100% Estate Maui; Yellow Cattura Washed

New 2015 crop! 

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, clean and rich. A very cool 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 right 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.

Guatemalan Huehue.  Premium Flat ML
Finca Vista Hermosa "Michicoy"

New 2014/15 Crop!!

The Michicoy comes to us from the Finca Vista Hermosa farm in the Huehue region of northwest Guatemala.  This farm is third generation family owned and has always upheld the highest standards in coffee growing and processing methods.  This farm is a model for many in their shade grown and organic methods.  While still grown at a fairly high altitude, the Michicoy microlot is the lowest grown lot at Vista Hermosa so it’s slightly milder and has more herbal tones then the other coffees from this farm, but it’s still a heavy bodied complex cup.  Edwin has been producing some of our favorite coffee for years and this does not disappoint.

Tasting Notes:
The aroma has great sweet notes.  Hazel and hickory nuts, caramel, and milk chocolate. The body is light/medium and has a very silky texture. The aroma comes through in the taste. Think melted turtle candy. The finish is very smooth and clean and this is definitley one for you lower acidity fans.

Roasting Notes:
We would recommend a medium to dark roast to develop the great chocolate and molasses tones.  Avoid light roasts.  This is a great go to morning cup of coffee.

Papua New Guinea Nebilyer Valley A/X

Very fresh new lot arrival - 2014/15 beans!

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 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.

Colombian Narino Supremo

New 2014/15 crop! Supremo is Colombia's largest bean sort. New lot arrival just in time for this newsletter

Colombia Narino Supremo 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:
One will be really impressed 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.

Rwanda FT. Dukunde Kawa Musasa

New 2015 crop!

Rwanda FT Dukunde Kawa Musasa coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Musasa mill located near a gorilla habitat in the Gakenke district of Rwanda.  Farmer plots are so small that measurements are based on the numbers of trees, not area of land.  Farmers who process their coffee at the Musasa mill are members of the Dukunde Kawa Cooperative, which started in 2000 with enough funds to build one wet mill.  In the following years, the Dukunde Kawa Cooperative has built three more wet mills and completed construction of their own dry mill.   More than 80 percent of the cooperative workforce is women, and producer-members have used earnings to improve their standards of living with investments in livestock, access to healthcare, and programs to protect the environment, which won the SCAA 2012 Sustainability Award.  The quality of the coffee is also internationally recognized, consistently placing as one of the best in the Cup of the Excellence annual auction.    

Tasting Notes:
In a word this coffee is incredible.  The aroma is soft and has subtle notes of dried fruit, vanilla, dried oats, and salted mixed nuts.  The flavor is complex.  It has a medium body and silky feel on the tongue.  Initially the flavors are very fine and pleasant light notes of dried figs, plums, and vanilla wafers.  As this coffee glides past your tongue and you’ll get an explosion of dried apricots, cocoa powder, almonds, and some boozy rum-like notes.  The finish is slightly dry and lingers just enough to have you greedily reaching for another sip.

Roasting Notes:
I would avoid the lighter roast points, a little acidic and grassy tasting - the silky body starts to hit at a medium roast and the darker fruit and 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.

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.

Hawaiian Kona Greenwell Farms
Prime Grade* (Fancy)

Wow; I tell you we had to pull some favors to get Kona this year (similar to last year)! 

Again this year, the crop is down... pesky pests; they are getting on top of it but still a major problem; *because of the pests and problems with the crop all Kona has been downgraded by the Hawaiian DOA, any other year this coffee would have been a fancy to extra fancy grade, these beans are Greenwells top grade produced this year, screen size 19, polished, (a little two toned in color). 

This is the new 2014/15 crop! 

The Greenwell Farms legacy began in 1850 when Henry Nicholas Greenwell left England and first set foot on the fertile soil of rural Kona.

Greenwell farms is one of the biggest names in Kona coffee. This is their highest quality bean, a very large, clean, polished coffee with a flavor matching the looks.

Tasting Notes:
What makes Kona so great? It has those lovely soft fruity tones at the lighter roasts; in this case, a real nice bright citrus/tart cherry tone, mixed with a sweeter chocolate nut bottom note. Hints of island acidity to bring you that very well balanced, unique, and crisp cup of coffee. Medium bodied, not to delicate you can't taste it, not too strong that it feels like a punch in the mouth. 

Roasting Notes:
Take it a little lighter to accentuate those fruity tones and sweetness and a little darker to increase the depth of flavor. Careful, this top rated, fresh as can be Kona does have some sizzling brightness, avoid real light roasts and a 2-3 day setup will really bring the cup together.

Decaffeinated Peru MWP Org. 

Certified up the wazoo and tasty as can be - this is one of the higher rated decafs we have had through our doors, very sweet clean and rich - one you decaf drinkers will not want to miss - tasty enough to even keep you caffeinated drinkers happy! 

Peru is one of the largest producers of coffee in the world and is noted as one of the major producers of fair trade and organic coffees. This organic coffee comes from the farmers of the Piuran mountain range. 

This is one tasty decaf! Very rich and smooth with a nice creamy chocolate undertone and very fresh! A hint of acidity gives the cup a crisp feel. 

Careful not to roast this too dark, I would try to stay out of the second crack. It will turn a little edgy into those darker roast points.

Darjeeling - Margarets Hope Estate Vintage Lot #186

A top grade from one of the more famous Darjeeling estates 

Steeping Time - 3 Minutes

Water Temp - 212 F

Founded in the 1870's this is one of the oldest estates in the region - Named after the founders daughter who loved the farm and was lost in a tragic sea voyage on her return to the region shortly after it was founded.

Poking around the web I was shocked to see how much this tea and specific lot sells for at most places (up to $50.00 for 3 ounces)- we have found some great sources and use the same markup as our coffees - passing on the savings to you!

Tasting Notes:

A very flavorful black tea with a nice muscat note, good sweetness, a little fuller bodied and a great depth of flavor.
