Kenya Premium Nyeri Mutwewathi

Kenya Nyeri Mutwewathi AB GrainPro coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Mutwewathi Factory (wet mill) in Nyeri County, Kenya. The New Gikaru Coffee Growers Cooperative Society manages the Mutwewathi Factory, which processes coffee from members who generally cultivate approximately 250 coffee trees on half-acre plots.

Tasting Notes:
A very nice Kenyan a bit different from normal offerings, less acidity, very sweet with some clean soft fruit tones - a heavy caramel undertone mixes very nicely with the floral aspect. One of my favorite new Kenyan offerings. 

Roasting Notes: 
Kenyan coffees can be tricky to roast. If you are a bright coffee fan, quick medium roasts will be perfect and leave the cup as crisp, sweet and refreshing as it can be. Not such a bright coffee fan? Try drawing out the roast and take it to a full city to a few seconds into second crack for a much lower acidity cup with a very nice depth of flavors.

Rwanda Akagera 100% Bourbon

Rwanda Akagera Bourbon GrainPro is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the COCAMU cooperative located in the Kirehe district of Rwanda. COCAMU was established in 2007 and currently has 582 members, 224 of whom are women. COCAMU provides fertilizer to sustain coffee quality and yield, and maintains a health insurance program to improve access to medical cares.

Tasting Notes:
A little fuller bodied and very clean for most Rwanda coffees - the first arrival for the new 2014 crop. Bourbon coffees are unique and produced in many different countries but when they really shoot for a nice single strain offering they are always high on my list - Some good sweetness upfront and a nice winey tone like a Guat Huehue. This lot has a cool molasses brown sugar like quality with a nice spice note that will not be found in many other origins. Similar to many Tanzanian and Kenyan coffees. 

Roasting Notes:
I would avoid the lighter roast points, a little acidic with grassy underdeveloped tones - Right before the 2nd crack was our favorite roast, kept the balance between light and dark tones - gets a little rough around the edges darker but many strong coffee fans will like it into the 2nd crack.

Ethiopian Washed Yirgacheffe Gr. 2 Chelba

This coffee is produced by a farmer group that is made up of 500 people. On average, each farmer owns two to five hectares of land. After the coffee cherries are picked, they are sorted and pulped immediately, and then fermented in water for up to two days to remove the mucilage. After the fermentation stage, the coffee is washed in long troughs. All the water used comes from the Chelba River high in in the mountains. After being washed, the coffee is placed on drying beds, and is turned every few hours to ensure even drying. The drying process can take anywhere from eight to ten days, depending on the weather. Currently, the Chelba Washing Station has 180 drying beds, and plans on building 80 more in the near future.

Tasting Notes:
This is a very cool lot of the Chelba - a little more body and sweetness than most. very clean rich and smooth with some very exotic floral/tropical fruit notes upfront balanced with a little sweeter chocolate undertone. More of a fruit note than the non-microlot Gr. 2 yirg but not quite as sizzling as the grade 1 Shilicho. A very complex and unique cup of joe.

Roasting Notes:
This is a light to medium roast coffee, just past the first crack cool it off. A city to city + roast really brings out the full potential of this cup. Make sure to let it set up for a day or two before drinking.

Colombian Popayan Supremo

New 2014 crop! Supremo is Colombia's largest bean sort. Colombia continues to turn out some of the best coffees in the world and this Popayan Supremo is no exception. This coffee from the Cauca region of Colombia is grown on small farms where it is selectively picked and processed. On most of the farms, the coffee is shade grown. The region is home to over 1,000 different species of birds. Cauca is a multi-ethnic region, and the coffee growers are indigenous, mestizo descendants of the original inhabitants and the Spanish, and Afro-Colombian immigrants—they have worked hard to preserve their social structures and traditions. The growers work the land collectively

Tasting Notes:
The aroma of this coffee is very nice; sweet with with a little spice floral tone. It is pretty classically toned for a Colombian; semi-dry toasted walnut overtone turning a bit more molasses/caramelly into the darker roast points. Very balanced, subtle spice, clean and rich with a nice new crop crisp acidity.

Roasting Notes:
This bean is very versatile when it comes to roasting; great from light to dark. Be sure to try different roast points for it will greatly vary what flavors are accentuated. Enjoy a brighter morning cup at a City Roast or take it into an afternoon/evening coffee by roasting it from a Full City to a French roast.

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

Papua New Guinea Korgua A

Very fresh 2014 beans! The Korgua Mill was established by Dan Leahy, the Australian explorer who was the first outsider to venture into the New Guinea Higlands in the 1930’s. It was built on the traditional battle ground between the Ulga and Kolga tribes, who asked him to settle there as a buffer between them, and to arbitrate their disputes. Korgua was the first true coffee estate ever founded in New Guinea and to this day is run by Dan’s youngest son, Brian. It is planted mostly with old growth Typica trees, many of which are over 60 years old! Recently, Brian has undertaken a renovation program to remove a particularly virulent strain of ground moss which threatened some of the trees. He has, however, left the old varietals intact. Brian also provides support and processes coffee cherries for farmers in the surrounding Nebilyer Valley. The coffee we sell as Korgua is grown on the farm itself.

Tasting Notes: 
A very cool lot of PNG - a little rougher looking than the Kimel operation but awesome tasting. Very sweet and clean with a hint of ginger spice and a stronger bakers chocolate undertone. Fuller bodied and semi-floral with just enough acidity to keep it a little crisper.

Roasting Notes:
This is not a light roast coffee - medium roast to just touching the second crack is going to be the sweet spot. Too dark and you lose a bit of sweetness and the cool bright notes, too light and you get a bit grassy. Recommended to take it right before the second crack - great balance. Some may decide to take it slightly lighter or darker but will be personal preference.

Indonesian RFA Org. Balinese Blue Moon

The new 2014 crop is in and very tasty! Not on our normal list yet..

The new crop year to one of my favorite Indos!! A great year for it, very clean and fresh as can be. This is the sister coffee to the Kintamani Natural (very different tasting. Kintamani coming in about a month from now).

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.
 
SA farmers grow almost all heirloom Arabicas, Typica & Bourbon.  They use trees such as Erythrina, Tangerine, and Orange to shade the coffee, which improves yield and cup quality and enhances wildlife habitat.

Tasting Notes:
A very rich, clean, and smooth cup with a hint sweet lemon acidity balanced with a nice predominate chocolaty finish. Medium to full bodied with low acidity, a nice daily cup. Hints of a slight smoky tones can be found, especially in a darker roast.

Roasting Notes:
I like to take this one to a full city. It is very versatile and will hold almost any roast.

Decaffeinated Guatemalan Huehue SHB MWP






Guatemalan coffees are always some of our favorites! This is a great tasting freshly processed MWP coffee.

Mild acidity with a good mix of fruity and chocolaty tones. Very crisp and clean. Good body and sweetness make this a top notch decaf. Very fresh processing make it hard to tell its a decaf!

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.
