Tea Special:

Lemon Ginger Chinese White Tea

Bai Mu Dan white tea, lemon peels, lemon grass, lemon myrtle, ginger root with ginger and lemon flavor.

Steeping Time - 3 Minutes

Water Temp - 160-170 F

Not over the top ginger, just enough to tingle the tongue and senses. With a little stronger lemon tone this cup is amazingly complex and balanced with an aroma that will relax those daily stresses right away.

Tasting Notes:
Very difficult not to like white teas; floral, mild, delicate, complex, sweet and very refreshing. Mixing the great white tea tones with lemon and ginger just hits the spot.

Tanzanian Premium AB and PB

An awesome set of Tanzanian coffees - very different from each other but both great examples of what a Tanz can be. 

The AB microlot is very highly rated in the industry - very clean and a close clone to a Kenyan coffee - very bright, citrusy, clean, sweet, floral and chocolaty.

Very nice prep on the AB - Most ML coffees will not be just the large bean size, they take special care of a certain plot of land and process them all together to create a special offering. 

The Tanz PB Kilimanjaro is a great example of most Tanz PB except decently cleaner - much darker toned and chocolaty compared with the AB - much fuller bodied and lacking those citrusy floral notes upfront - more of a malty chocolate tone with a hint of sweet floral notes - fuller bodied. A better candidate for those who like fuller roasts than the AB.

El Salvador Pacamara Santa Leticia Las Ninfas

New 2015 crop!

Pacamara is a hybrid strain of Arabica know for its very large and sweet beans. 

At the end of the year 1870, Francisco Menendez, a very important person in Salvadorean history, he is the father of their education system, and he also began what was going to be known as Finca Santa Leticia. In 1886, he became the Constitutional President of El Salvador, he created one of the most liberal Constitutions of his times in Latin America, in El Salvador they celebrate “Teacher’s Day” on the day of his death,(1890), the 22nd of June, on his honor.

Santa Leticia is not only a coffee farm, it has thousands of forest trees which increase the biodiversity of the area and generate refugee for local and migratory bird population .

Tasting Notes: 
A nice sweet and rich cup, clean and balanced. You will find a nice malty molasses undertone with just a hint of acidity to keep it nice and crisp; a little hint of earthiness can be found at the lighter roast points but it balances the cup very well and is not over the top like a Sumatra, pretty classicly toned Pacamara.

Roasting Notes: 
Best at a medium to full city roast.  Lighter you will you will pick up more earthy/grassy notes, at a medium (city +) you will taste the great sweetness that you may loose if roasted too dark.

2015 Hawaiian Maui Mokka (14 Natural)

2015 crop just arrived!

This current crop of Maui Mokka is one heck of a cup, similar in tones to last years award winning crop - a little hint more acidity due to the freshness. 

Mauigrown has done a great job learning from the last crop to improve the next. This batch has a revised natural processing method to leave it a little sweeter with increased pectin levels. You can tell the difference just by appearance, it looks much cleaner. An old world coffee with new world inspirations. 
 
Tasting Notes:
Like its true Mokka parent, it's a phenomenally aromatic coffee.  Salivate in anticipation as the freshly wet grounds emit sweet, heady coffee fragrance laced with notes of Virginia tobacco and lush peach brandy.  Once fully brewed, the aroma is winy, very sweet and lightly herbal.  The cup is chocolatey with a note of sweet vanilla and soft fruit notes, It has a medium body has creamy texture reminiscent of Guatemala's Huehuetenango coffees.  It's an exceptional coffee experience!

Roasting Tips:
This cup is best from a medium roast to just into the second crack. To really get that great flavor make sure to let it set up for a day or two. Just into the second crack for that creamy chocolate tone and a medium roast for those creamy sweeter fruit tones. 

*****Roasting Maui Moka can be challenging.  The beans are high in chaff and can progress very quickly from first to second crack, be careful and watch the roast. If you run into any issues, make sure to hit the cool button!!!!*****

Past that, you're in for a real treat!

Ethiopian Washed Yirgacheffe Gr. 2 Kochere

New 2015/16 Crop! First new arrival of the year. 

The Grade 2 is a bit brighter and sweeter than the grade 1 but less complex - if your a fan of the bright citrus notes of an Ethiopian the Grade 2 is highly recommended. 

Ethiopia Yirgacheffe 1 Kochere GrainPro is sourced from family-owned farms in the Kochere district of the Gedeo region of Ethiopia. The Gedeo region is named after the Gedeo people who are indigenous to this area. The Kochere micro-region has long been known as one of the best origins for southern Ethiopian coffee. The combination of very high altitude and iron-rich, acidic soil creates the ideal growing situation to produce the bright, floral Yirgacheffe profile.

Tasting Notes:
A very tasty and complex cup; a honey like sweetness mixed with a nice tropical fruit tone; very clean, rich and balanced. a medium silky smooth body; the cup has a nice darker chocolate and herbal tones that mixes so wonderfully with the lighter tropical floral notes. A prime example of what an Ethiopian should and could be. 

Roasting Notes: 
This is a city to full city roast coffee, a pretty sizzling cup so light roasts are not recommended. A city + to full 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.

Indian Mysore Nuggets - Extra Bold

Year in to year out, this is always one of our most popular coffees, at times we have trouble keeping it in stock! New 2015 Crop!

Mysore coffees are the best known and the most popular of all Indian coffees, they posses good body and snappy acidity. The overall taste profile is very unique, with spicy overtones. These spicy overtones come from the cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves and pepper that grow alongside the coffee trees.

This lot is full bodied, with a rich full taste and moderate acidity. Very interesting and exotic, I like to roast this coffee a little darker, just into the second crack.

Tasting Notes:
Indian Mysore Nuggets have been a favorite of Burman Coffee and customers for many years and this crop does not disappoint.  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

Decaffeinated Indonesian Sumatra Mandehling Gr. 1 MWP

 

Sumatra coffee is what originally made me a believer of home roasting. Never had a good commercial cup Sumatra but when roaster correctly, boy is it one tasty cup! 

Indonesian Sumatrans will be a bolder stronger cup of coffee, the aroma after roasting is very sweet with a hint of spice. 

Tasting Notes:
Medium to full bodied and sweet, this is one stronger cup of coffee.  Very nice aroma of cinnamon and dark fruits with notes of incense.  Hints of dry herb and spice with just a smidgen of traditional Sumatra pete moss/smokiness.

Roasting Notes:
A medium to dark roast will suit this coffee well by accentuating the darker tones and body.

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

New 2015 Crop!

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. The roasted beans will look quite normal but make sure to taste this cup before questioning the processing.

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.

Boquete was founded on April 11, 1911. Initially, the head of the district was Lino, but it was moved soon after to Bajo Boquete. For many years, the district had three "corregimientos" (townships): Bajo Boquete, Caldera, and Palmira. In 1998, the "corregimientos" of Alto Boquete, Jaramillo, and Los Naranjos were created.

In addition to tourism, its main industry remains agriculture, especially the growing of coffee beans. Boquete is well known for its coffee, judged to be among the finest in the world.

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.

Guatemala Huehue. SHB EP Finca El Injertal

New 2015 Crop! 

Guatemala Huehuetenango Finca Injertal is sourced from a family-owned estate located in the municipality of La Democracia within the department of Huehuetenango, Guatemala.  Finca Injertal is owned and operated by Jose Alejandro Solis, a third generation coffee producer, who continues the traditions passed down from his grandfather, Jose Olivio Chavez, who established the estate in the 1940’s. Coffee is grown on 173 acres under the protection of Chalun shade trees, while 32 acres are a preserved forest of diverse native trees that provide refuge for wildlife. The estate also has an abundance of spring water sources which provide year-round hydropower for the mill operations and pristine water for processing coffee.

A prime example of a high grown Guatemalan. 

Tasting notes: 
A very tasty fresh crop Huehue - fuller bodied, very clean and crisp. Nice floral sweet aromatics with a hint of spice. Classic dry malty tone with some complex white wine like acidity upfront - semi-sweet and great at a variety of roasts - darker roasts will kill the acidity and add some smokey notes - some will pick up dark roasts on this cup as chocolaty. 

Roasting notes: 
Personally, we are fans of most Huehue coffees at a medium roast, very balanced with some brightness upfront and a nice malty finish, many of our customers will love this one darker - much fuller bodied and heftier of a cup - would avoid super light roasts.
