You heard right, today is new coffee day! I know we usually prefer Fridays, but...ya know...not this week. So ready set, here we go!
Colombia Sierra Nevada Sol Naciete Organic: Colombian coffee is always a crowd pleaser; it's got full body, creamy texture and excellent balance. This small coop offering is absolutely exceptional and represents that niche well. It's slightly crisp with sweet notes of dark chocolate, orange, peach and caramel. Everyone will find something to love about this coffee!
El Salvador Santa Ana Pulp Natural: This unique coffee is processed using the Pulp Natural (semi-washed) method rather than being fully washed like most Central American coffees. Usually this results in a few raw and earthy twist that some folks love and others can't stand. This coffee is surprisingly balanced and mild for a Pulp Natural and we think it's a great balance between the two styles! Give it a shot even if you're not a typically adventurous coffee drinker.
Nicaragua Segovia Prodecoop Organic & Fair Trade: We had this coffee last season and loved it so we couldn't wait to get a new crop in. This harvest does not disappoint! It's highly drinkable and easy going with sweet notes of milk chocolate, a touch of lemon and a pleasant almond finish.
We also restocked several favorites and rotated our roasted selections, come see what's on tap!
As we wave goodbye to February (and hopefully Winter!), we begin to look forward to a whole bunch of new harvests hitting the states come Springtime. Thankfully, some new coffees have already begun to trickle in and they're a sign of coffees to come, we couldn't be more excited!
Brazil Barra Grande Natural: Brazil exports a LOT of coffee. Literally more than any other country in the world, which can sometimes mean finding the really good stuff is harder than you might think. Well, we landed a gem with this single estate from Sitio Barra Grande. It's mild and gentle with low acidity, a creamy body and great balance. Sweet notes of cocoa and orange with a nutty finish. Great as a mild cup by itself and stellar in Italian style espresso blends.
Colombia La Cristalina Excelso: With there being so many wonder organic options from Colombia, it's rare we get a conventional one in. But when our importer described just how good this coffee was, we knew we had to have a bag. It's just as delicious as promised! It's got a luxurious and silky body with excellent balance and little to no bite. Sweet notes of milk chocolate, caramel and cherry abound with delightful floral undertones.
Bali Blue Moon: Folks who shop with us often know we carry the organic version of this coffee quite often since it's an absolute knockout coffee. For one reason or another, the organic part of this crop was delayed significantly so upon hearing that the conventional version has exactly the same profile, we pounced on it! Rich, syrupy body and a complex profile follow an unusually crisp front end. We love the notes of baker's chocolate, vanilla, black pepper and cedar.
