New coffee day comes a bit late this week, but trust us, it's worth the wait! We're incredibly excited to bring to you 3 new crops sure to tickle your taste buds and keep you coming back for more.
Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Konga Natural: We couldn't WAIT to get this coffee back in after the amazing crop last year! It continues to impress, though I would say it's a bit more "tame" this year. It's a bit less complex but still has plenty of blueberry and a slight tang on the finish. We also noted a bit more floral tones, similar to washed Yirgacheffes. All in all, still our favorite Ethiopian coffee in recent memory!
Guatemala Huehuetenango Huixoc: Don't worry, we had to ask how to pronounce it too (Wee-Chock, FYI). Classically Huehuetenango coffee, but with a sweeter profile than we've seen in from others. Think more milk chocolate than dark chocolate, with lots of body and a buttery smooth texture that keeps us coming back to this amazing coffee growing region time after time.
Zimbabwe Smaldeel Estate AA: We tried this coffee for the first time at the tail end of the last crop and immediately recognized that Zimbabwe is truly an amazing coffee growing country flying under the radar. The beans are HUGE so be careful not to overload your roaster! We love this crop's notes of peach, rhubarb, caramel and lime zest along with a gentle tea-like body and crisp finish.
