Hello Everyone,
We just added a lot of coffee. Here's 8 new ones including 2 workshop
blends that have resurfaced. Enjoy! Have a great weekend.

Sweet Maria's Ethiopiques Blend
<http://www.sweetmarias.com/store/coffee-list/others/blends/sweet-marias-ethiopiques-blend.html>,
a yearly favorite. Made up of three new crop washed coffees (all 90+!),
this one is an absolute killer in the espresso machine, and a super complex
brewed coffee - syrupy sweetness, array of fruits, striking florals and
acidity.

Sweet Maria's Altiplano Blend
<http://www.sweetmarias.com/store/coffee-list/others/blends/sweet-marias-altiplano-blend.html>
is also back up on the site. It's made up of 2 Guatemala coffees, as well
as a newly landed Nicaragua. Totally "Classic" espresso profile, chocolate,
citrus, body, and slight nuttiness in the finish. A total crowd-pleasing
espresso, and great for milk drinks too!

Nicaragua Finca Buenos Aires Caturra #488
<http://www.sweetmarias.com/store/coffee-list/central-america/nicaragua/nicaragua-finca-buenos-aires-caturra-488.html>,
and Nicaragua Finca Buenos Aires Maracaturra
<http://www.sweetmarias.com/store/coffee-list/central-america/nicaragua/nicaragua-finca-buenos-aires-maracaturra.html>.
These two coffees from the same farm, show quite a varied range of cup
flavors, from layered sugar sweetness to fruit-forward complexity,
bittersweet cocoa to floral and pulpy citrus. Both really nice in their own
ways, and an interesting A/B to taste together.

The A grade lot India Arabica Karnataka Kohinoor
<http://www.sweetmarias.com/store/coffee-list/indonesia-and-asia/india/india-arabica-karnataka-kohinoor.html>
cups similar to some of the Tanzania coffees we've had, clean grain-like
notes, barley tea, and simple syrup, while the PB selection

India Karnataka Plantation Peaberry
<http://www.sweetmarias.com/store/coffee-list/indonesia-and-asia/india/india-karnataka-plantation-peaberry.html>
shows much in the way of fruit in both aromatics and flavors, and with a
crispness in acidity. Another opportunity to taste different preparations
from the same general cherry selections.

Hawaii Kaanapali Dry-Process Maui Mokha
<http://www.sweetmarias.com/store/coffee-list/islands/hawaii/hawaii-kaanapali-dry-process-maui-mokha.html>
also returns to the list, and recently took 1st place at the Hawaii Coffee
Association's 6th annual Statewide Coffee Cupping Competition. These tiny
beans are interesting indeed, a bit tough to roast in grid drums, but
produce a really unique cup of coffee.

Mexico FTO Chiapas WP Decaf
<http://www.sweetmarias.com/store/coffee-list/others/decafs/mexico-fto-chiapas-wp-decaf.html>.
Nice and balanced, this Mexico lot has well integrated flavors of stone
fruit, sweet grains, and raw cane sugar.
We have a couple new Kenyas, Ethiopias, and Guatemalas hitting the list
next week.
