We Keep on Cupping

We're continuing our search for delicious organic beans. Because coffee is a constantly changing commodity, our offerings will change every several months. We really love the coffees we have right now, so we're looking hard for coffees with the same flavors. 

Here are notes from our most recent samples:

Costa Rica Organic Lomas Al Rio: A rich coffee with flavors of cocoa, caramel, and nuts, a smooth aftertaste and med-full body. 

Honduras Fair Trade Organic COCAFELOL: This coffee starts with a sharp and spicy aroma. Overall a simple coffee with notes of earth, chocolate, and nutmeg. 

Uganda Natural Bukonzo Organic: Features an exotic, woody and floral aroma. Sweet, syrupy blueberry and strawberry jam flavors. 

Ethiopia Certified Organic Fair Trade Harrar Gr. 4: Similar to other Ethiopian coffees we've tasted. The fragrance
is both tangy and sweet. Dark chocolate and dried fruit come to mind, especially blueberry at cooling, light acidity, minimal sweetness and a medium body. 

Ethiopia Organic Sidamo Grade 2 Suke Quto:
A muted fragrance followed by lemony, black tea notes, a hint of sweetness, and a light-medium body. A good flavor match for our Ethiopia Yirgacheffe. 

Papua New Guinea Organic A/X Yha Hauka Kopi:

Low complexity, spicy and slightly smoky aroma, earth and wood flavors, nice aftertaste. 

Ethiopia RFO Limmu G2 Kaffa Forest Estate:

Featuring an almond and vanilla fragrance, followed by flavors of caramel, honey, hibiscus and lemon. A bright coffee. 

We'd love to hear your thoughts on coffee flavor: 

What are your favorite flavors in coffee? Do you go for fruity? Floral? Chocolatey? Caramel? Do you tend to stick with coffee from one part of the world? What's the best type of coffee you've ever had? Leave a comment below!
