Happy Friday. Here's Six New Coffees.

Brazil Fazenda Borgas Yellow Bourbon is a nice basic Brazil, caramel sugar sweetness, roasted nut, and bittering cacao notes. Viscous body makes it a great option for espresso, and milk drinks.

Brazil Fazenda do Sertao is an approachable cup with a nice base bittersweetness. Expect developed sugar sweetness, hazelnut, and cacao/cocoa finish. This is a bodied cup, and will perform well as espresso or a blend component.

Burundi Bujumbura Risca has a complex profile, but cup flavors show balanced restraint. Citrus flavors and acidity meld nicely with tea and spiced top notes, all atop a base sweetness of light brown sugar.

Guatemala Antigua Estate Peaberry has a grounding sweetness of raw sugar flavors, highlighted by baking spices and mild fruit flavors of plum, apple, and nectarine. A malic acidity shines through, and adds structure across a wide roast spectrum.

Peru FTO Argión Villanueva is a great daily drinking coffee from Agrion Villanueva, toasting sugar bittersweetness dominates the cup, with faint dried apple and almond notes, and a well-integrated acidity. City roast is a shade too light and tends to be a tad 'grassy'.

Sulawesi Bone Bone Kalaciri is a bodied coffee, with best results at City+ and beyond. Flavors of muscovado sugar and brown bread take the lead, with hints of peet and tart berry trailing behind. It showcases a well-balanced base "coffee" flavor and is good for espresso.
