We’ve got a few new arrivals, and they are super. (They are also expensive.) The first is a new crop estate Costa Rica from Helsar de Zarcero. It has very high acidity and complex flavor. The farm is exemplary, owns its own mill, and has been a Cup of Excellence contender in years past.
The second is a new crop dry process coffee from the Sidamo region of Ethiopia, with the mark “Korate.” It is awesome. For a description, please check out the coffee list. But the short of it is that it is very fruity, sweet, and relatively bright–a bit of a change from the rustic Gololcha, which we are now out of.
The new crop El Salvador Peaberry is on its way, and should be here in a month.
The bad news is that our new Sumatra is almost gone. I goofed on this one, and didn’t purchase enough of it. We have a replacement for it that is interesting in its own respect, but it’s more of a typical Sumatra, with forest floor characteristics. We’ll be roasting this coffee on the darker side.
There are a couple of other surprises in the works for the next month. We’ll let you know.
Please note that we will most likely be following a Tuesday roasting schedule for the remainder of the summer.
