Uganda Org. Sipi Falls Bugisu

Colombian Flag

Uganda Org. RFA UTZ fully washed Sipi Falls coffee is sourced from family owned farms located in the Bugisu region on the slopes of Mount Elgon in the Kapchorwa district, Uganda.  The Bugisu region is named after the Bugisu people who are indigenous to this area.  The Sipi Falls coffee project, named after a trio of majestic waterfalls, was established in 1999 to strengthen quality coffee production in the region and create a sustainable income for farmers.  

Small production Africans are a hit this year - We are not sure if its the weather but arrival after arrival of these smaller producing African countries continues to wow and this was one of our favorites.

Tasting Notes:
Clean, sweet, balanced and fresh as can be. This cup mimics a very nice Kenyan auction lot - way cool for a Uganda coffee and nice for us consumers as well for a similar cup out of Kenya would be a couple bucks more. Caramel/molasses tones, floral tones and chocolaty tones make for a very nice treat. Good from light to dark - this cup does contain some good acidity so balance it out by your roast level preference.

Roasting Notes:
I think our favorite roast was a city + - a little on the lighter side, leaves it a little more acidic but sweet clean caramel and floral aspects make for a pretty tasty cup - taken to a full city bring out a bunch more body and darker tones - also tasty but not quite as delicate, sweet and smooth.

Chinese Micro-lot Gr. 1 Washed - Black River - Estate Produced

An excellent new 2016 crop offering.

This is a way cool Chinese single estate coffee grown above 1500m; coming from along the highlands of the black river in pretty dense natural forest land. 

The area this coffee comes from in not what most would think when China is mentioned. Think rainforest's with gentle mists coming off the mountain engulfing the coffee trees - a herd of wild elephants live on the farm as well, they really try and preserve the natural habitat throughout the whole farm.

Natural forest canopy covers the bulk of the coffee which is very ideal for the plants and is very important from the local eco system. The farm mostly grows cattura but there could be a couple other testing strains intermixed within the forest that made its way into the lot. 

Chinese coffee, which is pretty new to us here in the US, has been around for hundreds of years. China has been growing coffee since the early days of coffee farming. They had a strong presence at this year SCAA but we have to say - the bulk of what we have seen and tried has been lower end and not so clean. Usually used for cheaper coffee blends. 

Our neighbor here at Burman Coffee, Victor (who does commercial setups) was lucky enough to get inviting to China to see one of their top end coffee competitions - no international jury or buyers were there, top end coffee producers and high-end domestic retailers. He found an absolutely stellar lot (in comparison to what normally makes it here) Long story short, 10 weeks later, here it is for your drinking enjoyment. 

Tasting Notes: To picture this cup you need to steal some aspects from many different coffees, think sweet and floral like a Costa coffee mixing with the stronger chocolaty tones and body of a Rwanda or Burundi with just a hint at certain roast points of spicy very clean Indonesian earthiness. Without being too extreme in any of these tones, this is really a cup anyone can like. 

Roasting Notes: Hard to pick a favorite roast but fun to play around. Avoid super light roasts for you will end up a bit front loaded with acidity and lighter tones. Great cup medium to dark. For a first roast i would take it right around 2nd crack and judge your personal preference from there. A little closer to a Central American coffee around the medium roast, hint of the African and Indo characteristics at the darker roast points

Brazil Bob-O-Link Nature Friendly Natural - Flat Bean

The Brazil Bob-O-Link Co-op is on the cutting edge of sustainability and Microlots - each ML is put together in small batches - blended to perfection by Q cuppers (not really a blend per say... more of a construction of a S/O offering...) - each year they produce hundreds of different Microlot Brazils - We only pick from the best. I was lucky enough to visit their operation in 2012 to see the process in action - very impressive - They have started a processing model that now can be seen across the world - From Mexico to Hawaii every farmer is adopting techniques developed for these beans. 

Bob-O-Link has a great website where you can see photos of the farms and growing families along with some great information about ongoing projects and their sustainable farming.

This is a great cup for you espresso fans!

Tasting Notes:
A nice fuller bodied Bob-O-Link cup - full of darker chocolate notes with just a hint of sweetness and very clean for how darker toned it is. A little bit of acidity at the lighter roasts. Not on the fruity side as many lots in the past (noticable more in the aroma than cup itself), bigger bodied and darker toned - great for you stronger cup fans

Roasting Notes:
This coffee is a very versatile roaster, take it light to dark for a variety of wonderful tastes. I recommend this cup a little bit on the darker side, just before second crack to a couple pops into it - real full bodied and chocolaty... Yum!

Costa Rican SHB EP Tarrazu La Pastora

New long awaited 2016 crop! 

Tarrazu coffees are grown in altitudes over 3,900 feet, allowing them to be designated SHB-single hard bean, the highest classification in the Costa Rican system.  Grown in rich volcanic soil and high altitude make this one the finest coffees in the world.

Tarrazu coffees are famed for snappy, strikingly clean flavor. Known as a "classically complete" coffee, they're crisp and medium-bodied, with tangy citrus flavor and a fine, satisfying aroma. Tarrazu cups wonderfully at all but the lightest and darkest roasts. 

Tasting Notes: 
The aroma is floral and sweet like honey.  A nice medium bodied, smooth & creamy cup of coffee with little stronger floral aspect and medium brightness (gets a good lemongrass tone at lighter roast points).  It starts with a crisp darker chocolate note, hints of a soft fruit note, and finishes with a pleasantly surprising spiciness.  This is a savory cup of coffee with wonderful complexities.

Roasting Notes: 
Best at a medium to dark roast.  Lighter you will you will pick up more acidic notes, at a medium (city +) you will taste the great complexities that you may loose if roasted too dark.  Would make a wonderful espresso but great as a drip brew.

Panama Boquete Casa Ruiz Maunier Estate

New 2016 Crop! Coming from one of the best coffee growing regions in Panama.

Part of the Ruiz family of farms, Maunier Estate; located near the town of Boquete between Volcan Buru National Park and La Amistad International Park within the province of Chiriquí, Panama.  

The Ruiz family has worked in the Boquete coffee industry for three generations and owns the Maunier Estate.  The Ruiz family is also one of the founding donors of the Ngabere literacy program named for the indigenous population called the Ngabe, who work on the estate during the harvest.

We have carried many stellar Casa Ruiz coffees throughout the years, their standards are set high and we never have to worry about the quality wavering. They take real pride in producing very stand of lots of coffee. 

Tasting Notes:
A great very well balanced cup of coffee. Small hints of acidity, floral notes with plenty of sweetness balanced with a very smooth malty chocolate tone. Medium bodied, smooth, rich and very clean this is a cup you can drink all day long.

Roasting Notes:
An easy to roast coffee - being washed processed makes it nice and even roasting. Cup qualities start to shine at a city + (on the lighter side of medium) and it retains nice sweetness and character into 2nd crack. Most will like it best right on the verge of the 2nd crack. Keeps it on the stronger fuller bodied side but without an edginess or bitterness.

Tanzanian AA Micro-Lot Tarime

A very stellar coffee you will not want to miss

This lot of prime AA coffee comes from the new Muriba Mill that serves ten farmer groups across 15 villages, near the town of Tarime, in the Mara area of northern Tanzania. From having no production in 2013, the mill processed nearly two million kilos of cherry in the 2015/16 season (this crop), and production is still increasing. The area experiences two seasons of rainfall, the long rains from March to May and the short rains from October to December. On average they receive 1400mm of rainfall per year, which means there is great access to water. Production cycle follows the standard timeframe for the Northern Tanzanian coffee harvest which roughly coincides with the Kenyan production cycle across the border; main crop is harvested September through December and fly crop harvested March through June. 

Tasting Notes: 
Wow (good way to start a description) - this cup is unique and pretty wild but bound to impress. Very sweet with some awesome light fruit at lighter roasts - think juicy peach or melon. The fruitiness of the cup is not coming from ferment tones but more from the super clean acidity. A little hint of citrus hits after the fruit and it ends with a mellow chocolaty tone. Darker roasts are tasty as well but the real shine is at lighter roast points - they will be much fuller bodied, still very sweet with decently stronger chocolaty undertone - turns a bit bitter/sweet chocolate into 2nd crack

Roasting Notes: 
Want to see what a stellar Tanz tastes like and why it will be highly rated in the industry - got to take this guy on the lighter side. Just after 1st crack - what they call a cupper roast. The beans will still look a bit splotchy from the washed processing - that is okay, you may still see a little chaff on some of the beans, also okay - this is where you will get the wild yet super clean fruit tones. Watch it though - if not quite all the beans get through 1st crack it will not be that tasty. Error a shade darker than lighter. A full city roast will be recommended for most - doesn't burn out too much of the uniqueness while balancing all those jazzy lighter tones - try to keep it before 2nd crack.

Kenya Peaberry Nyeri Gatugi

New 2016 peaberry!

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

Tasting Notes: A little more classically toned Kenya PB than our other Kahuro offering. Pretty strong citrus, floral, herbal and bakers chocolate tones. Easily identified as a nice Kenya coffee with the higher acidity twang and strength of the darker tones. Clean, rich and a bit fuller bodied than most. 

Roasting Notes: Avoid real light roasts - will be a bit front loaded with citrus acidity and not enough of a dark tone to balance it out. Fully city roast - right before 2nd crack is recommended - great body and chocolaty factor with a bit of crispness and herbal tones adding some great depth of flavor. Dark roast work as well with this guy but decently less exotic of a cup.

Decaffeinated Guatemalan Huehue 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.
