Guat JBM and four other new coffees

Hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend! Is everyone rested and ready for five exciting new offerings today?! OK, here goes… Heading things off is a new coffee/farm for us: the Costa Rica Chirripo -Finca Alaska. This is unique in its sweetness and brightness for a Crestones coffee and we're happy to have this intensely fruited cup in our arsenal. Next we have El Salvador Matalapa -Tablon El Amate, a versatile coffee from light to espresso roast, this is from a great older farm that we've enjoyed for quite a few years. Look for orange citrus and buttery body from this Pacas type coffee. We are excited to add another Kenya to our inventory… the Kenya Kirinyaga Karimikui, a complex array of brown sugar, fruit notes, and caramel with a syrupy sweet body to boot. We haven't seen quality Jamaican Blue Mountain in awhile, but this JBM, grown in Guatemala is special indeed. Fans will remember Guatemala Finca La Bella JBM Cultivar's great body, toffee, caramel, and restrained brightness. Look for lemon and apple brightness at the lighter roasts. Last on the list is the Ethiopia Organic Shakiso Wet Process with moderate brightness, caramel and jasmine tones, and lemon scent. Phew! Those summaries were a mouthful. Check out Tom's full reviews too!
