NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

We've long been fans of coffees hailing from tiny Flores, a little button in the far-eastern Indonesian archipelago (it is one of the Lesser Sunda Islands). Fewer than 2 million people live there, and coffee is a valuable export commodity. Old-time fans of the Firesign Theater comedy group will remember “the giant rat of Sumatra”…probably referencing, in actuality, the enormous rodent native to Flores.
This coffee is sourced from town in the Ngada Regency. Most farmers in this area have coffee planted at 1500+ meters above sea level and are growing a mix of older Typica trees and S795, the latter commonly referred to as "Jember", a natural mutation of Typica and Liberica. The coffee is dried under plastic domes in order to mitigate the wet weather in the area and helps to facilitate even drying. Most of the coffees are processed on hand cranked or motorized depulping machines on the farm, fermentation in buckets or small tanks. Because of the nutrient rich soils, they are able to grow coffee using fully organic farm practices, though they are not certified at this time. This custom decaf was processed at Swiss Water in Burnaby, BC and comprises two different current crop lots which were found to show a nice level of balance as non-decaf. Good pedigree! Makes a nice single origin espresso.

Symphony Latte, by Tyler Hauptman of Sweet Masterpiece
Barista Tyler Hauptman of Sweet Masterpiece (Portland, OR) shows off his chops on Badbeard's Symphony blend coffee.
"Had to call AGAIN about the Yirgacheffe Anbassa Bunna. I've NEVER had an Ethiopian washed coffee as clean, smooth and flavorful as this one. Beats any of the Beloyas I've tasted, and a blueberry note that just won't quit. Easily worth a 95 point rating. Thanks! "
