More new July arrivals...Kenya AA and Organic Sumatra Takengon 7-22-15

by badbeard 21. July 2015 19:21

Hellos to new rich Kenya AA Tambaya (Rumukia Farmers Cooperative Society) from the Tambaya Factory (wet mill) in Nyeri County, heartland of some of the world's greatest coffees. Nice notes of bergamot, fig and honey in this lightly acidic (for Kenya...no "face-melting!) fresh crop.

Sumatra Organic Takengon from the Gayo highlands of Aceh is rich, earthy and spicy...one of our better cups of Sumatra, a preferred locus for Badbeard for both single origin and drip offerings. Also Fair Trade certified.

Our friend Mayra Orellana-Powell, who herself comes from Santa Elena, Honduras, embarked on a very special mission to aid coffee farmers there. Her story can be found here

Coming week of 6/29 new arrivals

The coffers continue to swell with great coffee. Samples of favored Central Americans have been fairly middling-to-disappointing but we landed a prize, a microlot from Honduras, Santa Elena Catracha and farmer Adan Hernandez Amaya (several members of the family having eponymous farms under the Catracha banner). It's an excellent, high-scoring (90) Central with an even more excellent story which I will post on Moinday when added to the website!

Also getting in a very nice single origin decaf Mountain Water Process from Colombia...sweet and good fruit notes. Stay tuned!

Keffa Coffee's three new crop offerings arrived yesterday, June 22, and are all amazing as advertised! We also have new crop natural process Brazil OurCoffees "Sugar" edition, from producer Fazenda Santana. Yummy, nutty and chocolatey.

Patience a frustrating virtue, abundant Ethiopian coffees coming...

Fans of our Ethiopian focus will, like us, have to wait just another long week or so for the arrival of three GREAT coffees from our partner Samuel Demisse of Keffa Coffee...natural process Ardi, washed Limu Grade 1 and Sidama Grade 1. Also coming new crop Brazil OurCoffees Sugar, which is currently on the water approaching the West Coast terminals. Good times here in anticipation.

June 1 is a good day as we receive a new luscious Kenya AB from the Gatugi Factory (wet mill), more Yirgacheffe Aricha natural process, Burundi Dukorere Ikawa and organic Java Taman Dadar.

Continuing our presentation of some of the finest Colombian coffees...check out new EXTREMELY LIMITED Granja La Esperanza Yellow Bourbon natural process and Red Boubon honey process...simply amazing! Colombia Agustino Forest, one of our fave washed coffees, also is back in stock. New washed Ethiopia Yirgacheffe from Konga Zone is a fabulous addition too.
