  • Jamaica Blue, New Crown Jewel and More!

    Posted on by David Tatum

    Hey friends! We've got so much going on, I don't know how to squeeze it all into one newsletter! We got 10 new coffees in this week just in time for your holiday roasting including Jamaica Blue Mountain Clydesdale, a new Crown Jewel from Uganda and so much more. We also go in brewers, kettles and manual grinders from Hario that make perfect gifts for every coffee geek! Let's do a quick dive and highlight just some of our favorite arrivals:

    Jamaica Blue Mountain Clydesdale Estate

    Jamaica Blue Mountain Clydesdale Estate: This is the real deal folks, the creme de la creme. Beware the "Jamaica Blue Blends" and other pretenders, this is the Board Certified, true blue (pun intended?) JBM. Jamaican Blue Mountain is a mild, subtle, gentle island coffee. This coffee defines smoothness. Outstanding balance and creamy milk chocolate tones. Look for additional subtle notes of maple syrup, red grape and rosewater.

    Uganda Sipi Falls Kapkwai Natural Organic: Here we have our newest offering from Royal's Crown Jewel collection. Think top-shelf, best of the best coffees from this harvest season. This one's from the Sipi Falls mill of Uganda and it's been hand selected to give you the very best they have to offer. The strict selection process is evident by the incredibly even roasting beans and depth of flavor. It starts our intensely sweet and twisty as you would expect from a natural yet mellows and balances with more rest. With a rich body and velvety texture, expect notes of sweet red grape, peach, apricot, honey and vanilla.

    Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Adado Washed Organic: If intense, funky natural coffees aren't really your jam or you just need a break from them, reach for this fully washed Yirgacheffe. Gentle and balanced, it's got a surprisingly big body and silky texture. And just because it's washed doesn't mean it's not flavorful! We noted herbaceous and floral notes throughout with bergamot, lemonade and a caramel undertone.

    Bali Kintamani Natural Organic: If you love our Bali Blue Moon (just restocked btw!) then you'll love this coffee! It's from the same producers but it's natural processed instead of wet-hulled. Syrupy, slightly bright and very sweet, it's got a surprisingly clean finish for a natural! Look for notes of jammy strawberry, orange cream and cocoa powder.

    India Arabidecool Estate: This is a super unique and fun coffee! While many folks expect the musty monsooned Malabar from India, this coffee is more similar to fully washed coffee from the Americas. It's more balanced than we expected with relatively low acidity and sweet/spicy notes. We thoroughly enjoyed the notes of coconut, caramel, nutmeg and star anise.

    Ethiopia Sidama Natural Organic Water Decaf: Decaf enthusiasts rejoice! This premium coffee is hand selected to retain all the best flavors from Natural Processed Ethiopian coffee through the water decaffeination process and all the way into your cup. I finally have an excuse to not skip that afternoon cup that might keep me up at night! It's full bodied and creamy with savory earthy complexity and a spicy finish. Look for notes of black currant, blueberry, cocoa and cinnamon.

    Hario

    Finally, we are excited to announce that we now carry Hario products! We've got the classic v60 dripper in several colors and configurations, the Buono kettle in both stovetop version and electric as well as two manual grinders! These make perfect Holiday gifts for any coffee geek, just make sure to pick one up for yourself while you're at it!

This one could very easily be the best I've ever had. Just. Wow. Jammy, juicy, twisty, silky...everything you could want out of a great Ethiopian Natural coffee! Expect big bursts of blackberry and blueberry with hints of jasmine and melon.

    Nicaragua Finca El Pastoral Washed and Natural Organic: We've got a rare pairing for you here! This estate processed their coffees in the typical fully washed method as well as natural. Try both and see what a huge difference processing makes! The washed version is full bodied and buttery with notes of dark chocolate, maple syrup, pear and apple. The natural is silky and complex with notes of strawberry, pineapple and milk chocolate.

    Papua New Guinea Roots No.1 Organic: This distinctive coffee comes to us from the highlands of Papua New Guinea via the Roots No.1 collective. It's semi-washed which moderates the acidity and adds complexity and a syrupy body. Spicy and sweet, it's got bold notes of red wine, berries, milk chocolate and a woody finish.

    Guatemala San Jose La Laguna Organic: This coffee is sourced entirely from Finca San Jose La Laguna in the Frijanes region. Certified organic and bird friendly, it's rich, creamy and just a tad complex. Look for notes of baker's chocolate, raisin, macadamia and cinnamon.

    Last but not least, we've updated and improved our roaster parts in stock! We've got a full line of replacement parts for the Fresh Roast SR540 and SR800 including new extension tubes!
