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
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

Sweet Maria's Altiplano Blend
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
and Nicaragua Finca Buenos Aires Maracaturra
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
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
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
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
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.
