Thats a pretty strong list of favorites. The Ngunguru Kenya was one 
of my tops, Kangunu, Tegu ... There were so many I can't recall all 
of them. I am just cupping some "fly crop" Kenyas now and they are so 
mediocre. I mean, they are ok I guess, 85 points, but the bar is set 
so high that 85 doesnt cut it. There were a lot of Ethiopias that 
topped my list as well - really too many to mention. Suke Quto was 
pretty amazing, and certain roasts of it seemed to coalesce into a 
really super cup. There were a lot of Guatemalas too. I loved our new 
coffee from Cabrejo. La Folie was fantastic too. Finca Rosma, great! 
La Montanita Pacamara and Bourbon were probably my favorite El 
Salvadors. Boy, this could go on and on - I have to get back to 
cupping before these cups get cold...
