Never a dull moment around here cupping and bringing in exciting new coffees! Just arrived yesterday beautiful Colombia Organic Planadas Reserva and Natural Decaf. The latter is a Colombia-based take on Water Process decaffeination utilizing sugar cane-based ethyl acetate "solvent" for removing the caffeine...this decaf is (not surprisingly correspondingly) sweet and lively. Brought by our friends at Traviesa Coffee.

Monday 8/24 will see some brilliant new crop coffees from Kenya (AA Gura), Ethiopia (Yirgacheffe Dumerso as well as a first-here Yirgacheffe Grade 2 Decaf, yes, you heard it right) and another offering from the Honduran smallholder farm Catracha Coffee Project, a brilliant new direct trade foray initiated by our bud Mayra Orellana-Powell of importer Royal Coffee. A beautiful short video from the producers' cell phone can be seen here
