Oh, sorry, I guess I was thinking in terms of older archives. Hmmm,
let me take a look at the experimental logs...
SKU 4350, Cameroon Mifi Java Longberry - ah, I didn't entirely miss it,
but the part that stuck in my head was "Java Longberry". Wasn't such a
short run, though: first listed 2014-08-04, dropped on 2015-01-12.
The dry grounds of this Java Longberry are quite sweet, buttery and
caramel, with a note that reminds me of honey glaze. Darker roasts
build more of a rustic appeal, sorghum and aromatic woods. With hot
water, the steam brings up a culmination of pumpkin pie spice and
sweet grass (not 'grassy', but more in the floral end of the
spectrum), and Full City shows roast tones and black currant
sweetness. The cup has up-front sweetness, and City/City+ roasts
show a bit of sugar in the raw and an apricot note. This is a low
acid cup, but the flavor and mouthfeel of black tea give a slightly
different perception. At Full City there's a rich chocolate flavor,
dark fruits, and a bit of ro ast complexity. A nice option for those
looking for lower acidity African coffee, as well as a unique
opportunity to try a great example of coffee from an area often
Roast: City to City+ is nice for any sort of complexity; our Full
City roast showed big sweetness, lower acid, and more roast tones.
Cupping scores used to be easy to grab, but in the new store layout
they're just images with meaningless names. :-(
Programmers are optimistic. And we have to be because if we weren't
optimists we couldn't do this work. Which is why we fall prey to things
like second systems, why we can't schedule our projects,
why this stuff is so hard. -- Douglas Crockford
