Papua New Guinea Nebilyer Valley A/X

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 (at lighter roasts) 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.

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.

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!

El Salvador Finca San Rafael Los Naranjos

El Salvador Finca San Rafael Los Naranjos coffee is sourced from the Asociación Cooperativa Agropecuaria de Participación Real San Rafael de R.L. (ACAPARSAR), which operates within the municipality of Juayúa in the department of Sonsonate, El Salvador. ACOPARSAR is a cooperative that was founded in 1980 and has 21members who collectively own the estate where they continue to produce coffee with a sense of deep tradition.  ACOPARSAR has a wet mill and is building a dry mill facility. Members of ACOPARSAR are participating in technical training related to prevention of soil erosion, leaf rust protections, processing improvements, and ways to deal with climate change.

Tasting Notes:
A great very well balanced cup; small hints of acidity, floral notes and sweet with a darker caramel 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.

Kenya Peaberry Nyeri Kahuro - Gikaru Cooperative Society

New 2016 top lot peaberry!

Our last new crop Kenya AA Kieni offering was on the mild side, sweet delicate, little lighter roast coffee. For those milder African fans - This cup is the exact opposite - super fresh, super bright, super clean and super chocolaty. A stellar cup that will absolutley scream prime Kenyan.

This coffee is SL 28 and SL 34 variatals, which made Kenya famous and grown at 1800 meters, which is great high altitiude beans.

Grown on the lower part of Mount Kenya - Kahuro means "lower part of the hill" referring to around 5000-6000 ft up the mountain.

Tasting Notes: Holy smoke, you cannot miss this one as a Kenyan. The cirtus acidity will show at any roast point. Great super clean and super sweet front end with hints of cranberry, tangerine, and citrus/floral with a little slight classic herbal note. The undertone is quite chocolaty but one will have to balance it out with the roast otherwise the lighter tones will hide a lot of the complex chocolate.

Roasting Notes: Avoid super lighter and quick roasts. Drag it out a bit - if your a bright African fan, a city + roast will give you what your looking for. If you want an awesomely complex and sweet cup that has some nice balance to it - slow down the roast and shoot for right before 2nd crack.

Ethiopian Natural Yirgacheffe Gr. 1 Chelelektu

First stellar Nat Yirg of the new crop!

This coffee comes from family owned farms organized around the Chelelektu mill located in the Kochere woreda of the Gedeo zone of Ethiopia. The Gedeo zone 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 top notch natural - if only they could all be this good. Clean, well balanced and a very upfront berry/melon toned cup of coffee. Although pretty acidic at very light roast points it is not as acidic as some of its cousins, once you get to a city roast - its gives off more of a honey like sweetness than raw citrus - very nice cup. Crisp and floral with strong fruit tones just a hint of dark chocolate at the lighter roasts. Fuller roasts give it more body and bring out some darker fruit tones but mute up a bit of citrus and awesome fruit notes.

Roasting Notes: 
I like this one at a quick city+ roast (medium) but some may want to drag it out a bit and get closer to 2nd crack - milder and smoother if drawn out a bit but personally i really like the extreme acidity, fruit and sweetness coming from a quicker semi-lighter roast point.

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.

Lemon Ginger Chinese White Tea - 4 ounce bag 

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

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. 

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.

Decaffeinated Mayan (Honduras) Royal Select MWP Decaf

A new decaf. origin for us - Hondurans coffee really tend to shine with the decafs - they are darker toned and chocolaty which is accentuated with the MWP processing. The "Mayan" name of this decaf comes from the working class in Honduras which is mainly Mayan decent. 

Tasting Notes:
Full bodied, smooth, semi-sweet and strong this is one tasty cup. Very hard to tell its a decaf. The stronger chocolate bottom mixes very well with the sweetness on top. Low to no acidity and a little on the earthy side (which adds to the chocolaty factor). People who like other coffee like Indo Sumatra, Colombian, Brazil - will really like this profile. 

Roasting Notes:
Easy to roast and best medium to dark - i tended to like right before 2nd crack, a little smoother and more delicate - darker gets a real rough and tumble bakers chocolate cup with hints of smokiness and a little earthy finish.
