Two 12 oz. bags. Our Chief Roaster will hand select a favorite of of the moment just for you! You can add a note about which flavor notes you typically like, fruity, citrus, chocolate, stronger, milder, etc., and he will factor that into his selection.
This is our 6-pack sampler of 4 oz. bags. It will be 6 different coffees from various countries and with different flavor profiles. It’s a great holiday gift for your favorite coffee addic…uh, snob, or for anyone who is just now getting into coffee and would like to explore the various types out there. (Note: the decorated holiday box is a digital holiday design, the ornaments, pine cones, and garland are not part of what is shipped)
A gorgeous, washed process bean, bright, fruit forward, and complex acidity, with defined citrus juice flavor notes. A melange of tangerine and mandarin blossoms into your mouth, accented by berry and apricot, this is a classic high end Kenyan coffee. This AB bean is slightly smaller than the AA version we have roasted in the past, a 15/16 screen vs. a 17/18.
The Ichuga beans are grown in the Kenyan Nyeri County highlands and processed at the Ichuga wet mill, operated by the Kiama farmers’ co-operative society. Centrally located between the Western slopes of the Aberdare range and the Eastern slopes of the highest mountain in Kenya, Mt.Kenya, this bean is grown at altitudes ranging between 5,250-5,850 feet.
The ripest cherries are selected by the over 3,000 co-operative members, and processed in the fresh water of the Gathiururuko Stream. This is followed by the traditional process of de-pulping, and then fermenting in water for 12-48 hours. After being washed and graded, it is slowly dried on raised African beds for up to 3 weeks.
Our first natural process from Guatemala, it has lower acidity than the Ethiopian naturals, while still having a fruity profile. Blackberry, mango are the first flavors we picked up, with guava, red currant following and just the most subtlest of chocolate coming through as the cup cooled. It feels like an Ethiopian natural without the acidity or strong citrus profile.
These beans come from the southeastern part of Guatemala, in a very rural, inaccessible, mountainous area above Laguna de Ayarza (locally known as “Blue Lake”), where there are less than 10 homes in total around its perimeter. Cold, deep and pristine, the lake is said to be formed by two massive volcanoes that collapsed into a large crater, parts of the bottom having never been found. The beloved lake is part of legendary folklore for the locals. Because natural process coffee beans have more rigorous requirements, only those grown in the 5,500-6,000 elevation are selected.
Due to the hilly conditions where the beans are grown, the natural process beans are transported to a neighboring region where there is flatter land available for drying them in the sun, with sufficient breezes to blow over them. Laid out in layers of 3-4″ deep, they are dried for 5-6 days while being constantly turned during the day. The cherries go from red or yellow to purple, and then black. They are then finished for a half a day in mechanical dryers, this final process helping to control the acidity and ensure a final dry process without any pesky rain showers that may cause re-absorption of rainwater.
