Hey friends! That's right, we got in a restock as well as two brand new arrivals from Africa!
Uganda Bukonzo Organic: This coffee has almost as much in common with Indonesian coffee as it does with African! Rich, buttery body with a moderate to low acidity and slight complexity of flavors, you could almost imagine this coffee being from Bali or Sulawesi. The African influence can be seen in the slightly winey finish. Look for notes of dark chocolate, black pepper and raisin.
Rwanda Misozi Abakundakawa Organic: Abakundakawa means "those who love coffee" so you know this one's going to be good. We would compare this one to a fully washed Ethiopian coffee: bright, crisp and light. Delicate with a clean finish, look for notes of pink grapefruit, honey, peach and lime zest.
That's right folks, it's finally back! We're even more excited because this time, it's a single estate too!
Tanzania Peaberry Kuza Tudley Estate: The Kuza Tudley estate sits near the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro right on the border with Kenya. You can definitely taste they similarities between the two origins, though with a decidedly less tannic profile. Either way, fans of either origins won't want to miss this! This peaberry is crisp, balanced and silky smooth. Look for notes of lime, honey and clementine.
Howdy, friends! We hope everyone is having a great 2019 so far! We'll keep it short and sweet today, we've got three new arrivals including a brand spanking new Kenya AA:
Kenya AA Nzaini Co-op: MMM-mmm it's been a minute since we had a Kenya AA around and are we excited about this one! More on the gentle side with less in-your-face winey-ness, it's exceptionally balanced and silky. Look for a bright front end with subtle sweetness and a dry finish. Notes of peach, grapefruit, hibiscus and raspberry.
Sulawesi Rantekarua Estate Organic: A fan favorite from last year, this year's crop is just as dynamite. Rich and syrupy with characteristically low acidity. It's great for dark roasting as the high altitude growth makes for a very dense and hardy bean. Look for notes of butterscotch, molasses and cocoa powder with a pinch of cedar.
Brazil Nossa Senhora de Fatima Organic: This coffee is a rarity in a sea of mediocre Brazilian offerings. Smooth and buttery with a pleasant walnutty finish, it's also got fairly low acidity! Expect notes of brown sugar, cherry and caramel. Keep in mind, this is a lower altitude coffee than others so go low and slow with the roasting!
We're a little late to the party but, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here's hoping your 2019 is wonderful, exciting and filled with amazing coffee! To help do our part, here's 2 brand spanking new coffees we're happy to share:
Colombia Huila Naranjales Estate: Named for the orange trees also grown on the estate, this coffee is a knockout! Full bodied and creamy with a slightly crisp front end, everyone will love this one. Look for notes of brown sugar, red apple and vanilla.
Burundi A Kayanza Matraco: This delightful coffee comes from a 4 time cup of excellence washing station and you can tell right away it's got pedigree! Crisp and very balanced with gentle sweetness and a silky body, this one is for folks who like they're coffee black (trust us, you won't miss the cream and sugar). Look for notes of lime zest, black tea, nectarine and sugar cane.
You read that right folks! For a very limited time, we've got Jamaica Blue Mountain Clydesdale in stock just in time for the holidays!
Jamaica Blue Mountain Clydesdale: The Clydesdale estate is one of the oldest coffee producers in the Blue Mountain region of Jamaica. Often imitated, never duplicated, this is stuff of legends. The best of island coffee is extremely balanced, smooth and subtle. Don't expect some wacky natural processed Ethiopia or super bold and spicy Sumatra, this coffee is gentle. Roast it light and drink it black! This year's harvest came down significantly in price (coffee prices swing wildly, this isn't a reflection on quality) so we're passing the savings on to you! We've got an extremely limited stock and won't be getting more for a long time, get it while it's hot and share with friends and family during the holidays!
