Here's Five New Coffees

Here's Five New Coffees

July 10, 2015

  • Cameroon Mifi Bamboutos Mountain - has pleasant body with brown sugar sweetness and roasted barley notes. A nice savory-sweet mix of baked sweet yam and raw sugar is furnished as it cools. Nutmeg-spiced finish.

 

  • Colombia Finca Monte Verde Gesha - has a weighty mouthfeel, like apple juice, and refreshing acidity that adds to the tactile impression. It's truly a refreshing cup with a whole host of fruit notes with 'tea' flavors. This coffee is clean as they come, brisk like the flavors found in the cup, and the finish coming to a point.

 

  • El Salvador Finca Matalapa Guayabo - has a chocolatey thickness that is like dark chocolate torte, along with a bittering cacao flavor and hints of roasted almond and pistachio. This is a classic mild Central American coffee profile.

 

  • Ethiopia Dry Process Yirg Adado Sulula - has dried blueberry notes, as in blueberry granola. Initial cocoa nib flavor passes into the complex sweetness of raw demerara sugar. Dried apricots assert themselves, with suggestions of mango as well. We find this coffee to really bloom in aromatics with a long post-roast rest of 2-3 days.

 

  • Ethiopia Dry Process Yirg Buufata Konga - is top-loaded with fruit notes of peach jam, chocolate-dipped strawberry, and lychee hints, accented by sweet spices cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom. It's a well-bodied cup, which carries a sweetness of date sugar and molasses long in the aftertastes. This is a coffee that will keep the descriptive adjectives rolling!
