Sumatra Aged Blue Batak 2019 arriving April 2!

by badbeard2 1. April 2019 21:38

Have been champing at the bit waiting to get this fabulous coffee...Lintong Blue Batak, aged over 2 years (originally harvested and processed September-October 2016). Very rich and complex, very different from out more-traditional Organic Takengon Mandheling KKGO. I was super-stoked after trying the importer's sample and finally it is arriving tomorrow, April 2. A real treat!

New coffee offering...Special du Jour Boutique, for rarities!

by badbeard2 7. February 2019 16:35

We often take in tiny lots for assay here in the "lab", and like mad scientists put them through the paces for unusual notes they might yield. Calling it "Boutique" not for pretense but because we might have as few as a few pounds of it or as many as 50...and they will run out quickly. As a test case this month's offering is an exceptional and rare natural process coffee from Burundi. List has expanded in March 2019 to include gems from Brazil (special process Natural), and washed Peru. Guaranteed to entice the senses!
