Upcoming Roast Coffee Pairing: Classic Cups from Two Different Regions 10/5/11
This pairing is a fine example of the contrasts between a classic Central America cup: Guatemala Antigua Finca Cabrejo and a classic Africa cup: Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Dumerso Cooperative. The main difference will be in the types of acidity present in each cup. The Antigua should display a well-defined, bright malic acidity coupled with blackberry and toasted nut, while the Yirg will have more ripe and slightly winey fruit with a big tangy finish. We'll keep both of these coffees in the City+ range to highlight these regional differences.
