Five, Count 'em Five New Coffees

El Salvador Matalapa -Tablon El Naranjo, Ethiopia DP Sidama Aleta Wondo, Kenya Nyeri Ngunguru, India Poabs Organic Seethargundu Estate, and Sumatra Gayo Mandheling. Now that Thanksgiving is behind us we are looking forward to a fun December of shipping coffee as fast (and accurately) as humanly possible. We are adding five great lots today from all over the world. El Salvador Matalapa - Tablon El Naranjo is from one of our favorite farms and this lot is cupping great with balance between brightness, flavor, and body; great as SO espresso. Ethiopia DP Sidama Aleta Wondo is a fruit salad smorgasbord with mango, passionfruit, and guava at light roasts, caramel and chocolate at darker roasts. Kenya Nyeri Ngunguru has candy-like sweetness, melon, peach, cran-raspberry juice notes, and intense brightness. India Poabs Organic Seethargundu Estate is a wonderfully complex surprise arrival that works at a wide range of roasts. Sumatra Gayo Mandheling is a classic rustic lot with bass-note profile and brooding character.
