One of the things that I remember helped me the most when I was first getting into coffee was understanding the 3 major coffee growing regions and what sorts of flavors I could expect from them. It helped me get started in regards to comparing coffees and training my palet.
In this video, I quickly show the various regions on the map and then describe the general flavors you can expect to come from each region.
Can't see the video? Watch it on YouTube.
The 3 main coffee growing regions are: Central & Sourth America, Middle East & Africa, & Indonesia.
We have some new coffees for your enjoyment that are in stock and ready to ship. Here's the rundown:
Brazil Nossa Senhora de Fatima Organic Fair Trade is a coffee that we have never offerred before. I don't usually favor Brazilian coffees unless it's for an espresso, but this bean has won me over. It's smooth, buttery and herbacious with that characteristic nutty bite most Brazilian coffees have - but nicely balanced. I've been drinking it on its own for several weeks and have not grown tired of it yet.
Costa Rica La Amistad Organic is a yearly favorite at The Captain's Coffee. This is the coffee that was infamously passed off as Kona by a crook years ago - successfully. It's impeccably balanced, smooth and clean. Milk chocolate, lemon acidity, clean and bright finish.
Ethiopia Sidamo Guji Natural is a bit more "muscular" than coffees from the region (like Yirgacheffe & Harrar) with a heavier body and mouthfeel. Floral, spice, red wine, and dark chocolate.
India Monsooned Malabar Gold AA is one of the most controversial coffees we have ever sold. Some love it, some hate it. In other words, this is one unique coffee. No other coffee is processed quite the same way. It's very sweet, musty, and funky. It has the heaviest body of any coffee we sell, and probably the lowest acidity as well. It's a study in extremes. It also makes a great component in blends or for espresso (we sell a LOT of this to coffee shops/small roasters for espresso blends).
Sumatra Permata Gayo Organic Fair Trade is for people that like bold coffee, but find Sumatra Mandheling to be too bold. This is a fruity, bold Sumatran but without so much of the earthiness of a Mandheling. It's very complex and responds dramatically to roast level so experiment!
Monday the 27th is Memorial Day which means the mail will not moving and neither will we. Of course, you can place your orders any time but factor in an extra day in your shipping estimates until Tuesday.
Have a great weekend!
