As Christmas gets closer, winter has begun to really set in. This week, we set about choosing coffees to stock that were not only delicious, but perfect for warming your heart, soul and body. We know you'll enjoy these new coffees as much as we do!
El Salvador Las Mercedes Estate: This single estate coffee is wonderfully balanced and warm with a full body and creamy texture. Look for notes of sweet dark chocolate and toffee with just a touch of lemon. It's a pleasure to roast and will handle a spectrum of roast levels well.
Java Taman Dadar Organic: This delicious Indonesian coffee is a house favorite and we couldn't wait to get a fresh crop. This harvest is just as low acid and syrupy as we remember and makes for a perfect dark roast due to its density. It's got a long, lingering finish and notes of baker's chocolate, pine and a hint of black cherry.
New coffee day lands on a Tuesday this week. We usually wait until Friday, but our delivery and cupping schedules were thrown off and when you've got good new coffee sitting around, you just can't wait to share it! We've also rotated our Roasted Coffees this week to feature this new coffee as well.
Rwanda Coopac Organic & Fair Trade: Rwanda is a coffee country that continues to grow in quality and popularity each season and with good reason. It seems like every Rwandan coffee we get is better than the last and this one continues the trend. It's got great body like a Kenya AA, bold rich texture like a D.R. Congo (which it neighbors) and the sweet juiciness of an Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. Very balanced, slightly crisp with delicious flavors of peach, lime and red apple. Give this coffee a try and see why we think Rwandan coffee is some of the most underrated coffee in Africa!
This week we've got 2 new coffees, including our first ever AA from Papua New Guinea. We've also decided to extend our 25% more free Roasted Coffee Promo through the weekend, so don't miss out! Both new coffees are being featured in our Roasted coffees and they're also available green for your home roasting pleasure:
Papua New Guinea Kimel Estate AA: Being our first AA from PNG (we do love our acronyms in the coffee biz), we weren't sure what to expect. Boy, were we impressed! This is high grade coffee for sure with a big, rich body and silky texture, it's also got a slight crispness similar to Sulawesi. With a much cleaner profile than most Indonesian coffees, it's got a dry, herbaceous finish and notes of baker's chocolate and cinnamon with just a hint of black pepper.
Guatemala Ceylan Organic RFA: The Atitlan region of Guatemala is often overshadowed by it's more well-known brother, Huehuetenango, but this coffee is a favorite around our shop! It's got the same body and slight complexity of it's big brother, but with a generally more relaxed and sweet profile. It's a bit more balanced and clean as well with notes of milk chocolate, black cherry and honey.
Bali Blue Moon Organic is back and better than ever! From the "Hidden Jewel of Indonesia", this coffee has tons of big, full body and a rich, syrupy texture. It's low acidity but slightly crisp, which sets it apart from many other Indonesian coffees. We found big flavors of milk chocolate and notes of vanilla and cinnamon.
Wow, what a new coffee day do we have for you today! Seven, that's right SEVEN new coffees in stock this week! There's something for everyone, from light and crisp to bold and syrupy and even a brand new organic decaf. We made sure to find the best new coffees from every region and we've got them all covered, including new crops from some of our old favorites. We'll list them in alphabetical order so you can be sure we're not biased (we love them all anyway!).
Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Aricha Washed: I know, I know, we always focus on Natural Processed Ethiopian coffees and ignore the washed, well not this time! This amazing coffee is gentle and mellow, with a surprising body and less acidity than we expected. It's balanced and refreshing with notes of melon, peach, mild lemon and lavender.
Honduras Finca Mi Esperanza Microlot Organic: There is so much to say about this incredible offering. It's a microlot, so you know it's been treated with the utmost care. It's honey processed so you know it's going to be sweet and fruity with low acidity. It's organic, so you know you can feel good about it's environmental impact. Subtle complexity and a clean finish with big notes of orange, cherry and cinnamon.
Honduras Organic Royal Select Water Decaf: Over the years, decafs with the Royal Select Water Decaf label have been the only decafs we've gotten excited about and this organic Honduran is no exception. Creamy, balanced and milk chocolate sweet with a clean finish and none of that nasty decaf flavor. Perfect for an after dinner coffee that is sure to please anyone.
Mexico Huatusco El Santo: It's been a while since we've been so impressed by a coffee from Mexico, but this one blew us away. It's medium bodied and creamy with big sweet flavors of apricot, red apple and honey. Just an absolutely delightful coffee, no sugar needed!
Peru Sol y Cafe Organic Fair Trade: This is a new crop from what has been one of our favorite coops in recent years. We've always loved how easy drinking this coffee is and it's sure to please your crowd. It's smooth and balanced with notes of mandarin, peach and caramel. Great any time of day and a wonderful blender to add sweet brightness without taking away from the rest of the blend.
Sulawesi Toraja Sapan-Minanga: Another new crop that we couldn't wait to get back in. This coffee is a favorite around our shop and a consistent winner. This year's crop brings no surprises and you'll still find it's full of big, rich, syrupy body and complex notes of cocoa powder, licorice and cedar. We like to say it's a really great Sumatran without the earthy bite. Think sophisticated and distinctive rather than raw and earthy.
Sumatra Takengon Organic Fair Trade: Of course we had to balance Sulawesi with a classic Sumatra! It's got the same rich, syrupy body with complex notes of baker's chocolate, pipe tobacco, spice and vanilla. Not for the faint of heart! Think of this as Sulawesi's raw, edgy pal. This is coffee with attitude!
