Two special edition sets, and a new workshop blend

El Salvador Finca Kilimanjaro 2 Lb Set, Colombia Tolima Small Farmer Set, 5 Micro Lots, Espresso Workshop #20 - Gneiss Shot. Today we are adding some very special sets of coffee. El Salvador Finca Kilimanjaro 2 Lb Set is a great chance to see how process affects cup flavor in a high quality lot. One pound is the way you've come to enjoy Finca Kilimanajaro lots, traditional wet process (TWP). The second pound utilizes a different "Kenya-process" (KP) and produces a bit more floral aroma in the cup and subtle changes to the flavor profile of ripe fruit and intense caramel sweetness. Which one do you like better? Let us know via the forum. Colombia Tolima Small Farmer Set, 5 Micro Lots is something we've been wanting to do for a long time; present 5 lots of coffee from the same region but, carefully grown by different farmers. All of these are outstanding coffees that score above 88 points and have nuanced differences within the framework of what we've come to expect from Tolima lots: winey fruit, spicey hints, syrupy body, and golden raisin sweetness. Which farmer's lot do you like best? Finally, Espresso Workshop #20 - Gneiss Shot is a bright shot that excels at roast levels as light as City+ with tangerine acidity, semi-sweet chocolate, and caramelized sugar.
