Three New Coffees

February 9, 2015

Ethiopia Dry Process Yirga Cheffe Cheleba is a nice later arrival Ethiopia new to our list. With actual "new crop" Ethiopias still a few months out, this fruit-forward cup rounds out our Ethiopia offers nicely. The profile is loaded with berry and fruit punch flavors, pectin sweetness, and a nice cocoa finish.

Brazil Fazenda IP Yellow Bourbon is pulp natural processed coffee, so while fruit flavors do show in the profile (especially when cool), it is much more oriented around flavors of burned sugar and cocoa.

Nicaragua La Bastilla Llamada is a mild coffee, toffee-sweet, and with roasted nut and tea flavors.

Both the Brazil and the Nicaragua are "coffee" coffees, crowd pleasers, if you will, and taste great in the middle roast range. Full City - Full City+ is a great level for espresso.
