    I've been thinking about coffees that take a little more work in the roaster - coffees that many of the coffee folk these days who are more interested in brighter and more acidic coffees frequently dismiss.

Espresso Workshop #32 - MLA (Strong City+)

This is a very diverse blend that was made for our espresso workshop but with the intention to be used as a non-espresso coffee as well. It features two Ethiopian coffees with different processing methods (dry + wet process) and a Guatemalan coffee to help harmonize the trio. This here is a City+ roast just on the verge of full City. The intent of this roast level was to achieve the ripe fruit and chocolate flavors up to the surface while preserving the brightness and clarity of citrus acidity as it's backbone.  A beautiful scent of fruits and sweet sugars in the aroma. Lots of citrus fruits and creamy chocolate going on in the brewed cup. The body is thick and juicy with a nice touch of brightness still sparkling in the cup. 

 

Cameroon Mifi Java Longberry (City)

Here is a coffee that you don't see everyday. This Cameroon has very nice body going on, even at a very gentle roast. At this City roast level it did it's best to hang on to the brightness of the acidity, which is inhearently mild. What a nutty coffee that closely resembles a Guatemala with it's fat body. Lots of buttery hazelnuts accompanied with bittersweet cocoa also surrounds this as it cools. Large and in charge! 

 

We are also roasting a fresh batch of Liquid Amber Espresso Blend.
