El Salvador SHG Pulped Natural (Honey) Tres Ninas

An awesome new crop Honey El Sal. Very bright and clean - an excellent example of Honey (pulped natural) processing.

El Sal coffee has been very hard to come by the last couple of years due to the rust leaf disease. this is the first year we have seen it really shine again - and what a great first offering - very crisp and clean with some very floral and sweet new crop brightness.

Tasting Notes:
A great very well balanced cup; a bit stronger acidity, floral notes and sweet with a slight hint of lighter fruit and citrus upfront and balanced with a darker caramel, semi-sweet - undertone. Medium bodied, smooth, rich and very clean this is a cup you can drink all day long. 

Roasting Notes:
I think a full city roast is the way to go, just before the second crack to just a pop or two into it; gives a really nicely balanced cup. Taken to a dark roast it gets a little rougher around the edges but gets even more caramelly, lighter roast is not recommended but will promote an acidic edge with just a hint of a darker tone.

Costa Rican Org. Coto Brus - Finca Amistad

First new crop arrival for Costa this year and an awesome one to start it all off with.

Hacienda la Amistad, located in Coto Brus, a canton in the province of Puntarenas, Costa Rica, is owned and operated by Roberto Montero, a third generation coffee farmer. Roberto’s grandfather first came to the area in the early 1900's as part of a team surveying the border between Costa Rica and the newly formed country of Panama. Roberto’s grandfather later purchased over 10,000 hectares of land and began to cultivate coffee. Roberto’s family has returned more than 6,000 hectares of land to the government of Costa Rica for the preservation of La Amistad International Park, the largest natural reserve in Central America.

Tasting Notes: 
The aroma is floral and sweet like honey.  A nice medium bodied, smooth & creamy cup of coffee with a lower acidity (get a good hint a lighter roast points, but very low acidity at a full city).  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 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.

Colombian Supremo Sophia 19+

A very fresh Colombian arrival! 19+ is the screen size of the coffee, one size larger than your average supremo (17/18)- a very nice large screen Colombian.

Our Supremo Sofía 19+ coffee is produced by approximately 30 small coffee producers from communities near Belén de Umbría in the Department of Risaralda in Colombia. The average size of each farm is between nine to fifteen acres. In addition to coffee, farmers are also cultivating bananas and pineapples. The main varietal of coffee cultivated by producers of Supremo Sofía is Castillo and most of this harvest is from April through August.

Tasting Notes:
The aroma of this coffee is very nice; sweet with light floral notes, hints of nuts and spice.  It has a smooth body, hints of a darker chocolate with a nice semi-dry toasted walnut overtone.  Very balanced, subtle spice, clean and rich. A good example of a classic Colombian.

Roasting Notes:
Its versatility is what makes this an exceptional coffee.  Great at a Full City or French Roast it will really highlight the beans chocolate and caramel notes.  Lighter is still great and will deliver a brighter cup with a little more brightness and spice notes.

Papua New Guinea Kimel Plantation "PB"

Kimel plantation was first established in 1974 by an Australian, Bobby Gibbs; it is now owned by traditional landowners, the Opais being the main tribe. Although locally owned, the plantation is managed by expatriate personnel with extensive experience in plantation management. They are appointed by the local directors. The plantation has a permanent workforce of 432, and they are housed on the estate in bush housing.

The estate also provides schooling for the children and medical facilities for the workforce and their dependents. Clean running water has been made available to the estate workers by way of a community project financed by one of their overseas clients, and its implementation is overseen by the estate’s management. Since the estate is located along the Kimel river, from which it derived its name, it has access to good clean water for the processing of its crop, which is a pre requisite along with sound husbandry and dedicated management to continually create quality coffees.

Tasting Notes:
This lot was harvested at the perfect time and is a great find. The cup is smooth and rich, fuller bodied coupled with a bit of a citrus/ginger note. It is a very chocolaty cup ranging from pretty smooth to strong bakers chocolate dependant on roast. The cup has a very floral aroma and a hint of sweetness and smokiness in the aftertaste. Clean, rich, balanced and very tasty.

Roasting Notes:
It can be roasted both light and dark, and creates an interesting coffee by blending the two different roasts. Enjoy!

Tanzanian Ruvuma AAA & PB

The long awaited Tanz new crop is finally here!

Ruvuma is a region in Tanzania situated around the city and district of Mbinga. One of the largest sources of income in the area is coffee production. Ruvuma was not always known for good coffee. It took until 1997 for two companies to open 13 new central pulperies and 8 new mini-pulperies, all but two of which they also manage.

By being the aggregate and managing the pulperies, they can insure the continued higher quality beans and raised selling prices for this coffee, thus helping out everyone in the region.

Farmers are paid the same price or more by Ruvuma than the prevailing home-processed parchment equivalent price for their cherry, and also get a bonus if the season is profitable.  This is despite the fact that they receive their money much earlier and do not have the work of processing at home. In return, they are expected to take greater care in tending their coffee and in particular to their harvesting of it. 

Tasting Notes:

This batch of Tanzanian Ruvuma is a little darker toned than previous batches; real nice sweeter but stronger chocolate spice undertones at the darker roast points- very smooth, clean and rich. This cup also shares many qualities of a premium Kenya at the lighter roast points. It is a very bright and citrusy cup which gives it a very high rating in the coffee world. At the lighter roasts you get a those wonderful citrus tones with just a hint of a sweeter chocolate bottom, very crisp and clean.

Roasting Notes: 
We like this coffee at a medium to dark roast. Try extending the roast at the light to medium roast points to build a little more body and undertones.

Decaffeinated Brazil - Mountain Water Processed

A great super clean Decaf Brazil - new 2014 crop and top notch. 

Hard to tell this one is a decaf! 

This Brazil has a very fruity wet aroma. Medium bodied with a dark chocolate nuttiness. A smooth, rich, clean cup perfect for those decaf espresso drinks.

Great as a single origin Americana or Espresso, also works well in decaf espresso blends. Try it with our decaf Sumatra (15%) and our decaf Guatemalan (15%).

I found this coffee best roasted to a full city, just before the second crack. It is versatile, could be taken lighter or darker depending on your preference.

Guatemalan Huehue. Premium Flat La Esperanza "Los Guayabales"

A great new Guat offering just in time for this newsletter.

This is a neighboring farm to Vista Hermosa that we have never carried before; recommended highly by Edwin from Vista Hermosa.

Similar to Edwin's farm, La Esperanza from Octavio Herrera is a model of sustainability and treats its workers better than 99% of other farms in the region; providing education, infrastructure and medical care.

A unique spin on the classic Huehue profile - much sweeter than normal with a bit more delicate acidity. A little cool floral fruit tone at the lighter roast points and almost more of a caramel tone at full city than dry malt. Enough acidity to leave your tongue a little dry but it doesnt really bring forward citrus tones except at very light roast points.

Tasting Notes:
This is definitely one of the cooler ML Huehue's we have brought in this year. Not quite sizzling but some pleasant acidity that gives an awesome berry/melon tone (just some hints but recognizable), along with a touch of that classic winey tone balancing with a nice and sweet malty/caramel tone. This cup is very distinct and stellar. Very clean and rich with a nice sweet aftertaste... What a great year for Huehue coffees!

Roasting Notes:
Very strange for a huehue, but you have to do a light to medium roast. Don't worry, its not over the top acidic at this roast point but gives you that awesome light tones mixing with the darker malty tones. Very tasty at the darker roast points but not as floral or sweet toned. Darker roast fans may get a less exotic cup but very nice and sweet at the darker roasts.
