Guys. We can’t believe it’s already the start of summer! We’re so excited that the weather has warmed up and everything is in bloom, despite our constant sneezing. We won’t get into cicadas.
With the change in season, we wanted to let you know about some new, single origin coffee offerings we have available.
Burundi is one of our favorite coffee regions, so we’re excited to bring a variety back! They grow a sweet, balanced coffee without tasting too fruity or floral like the popular Ethiopian coffees. This is a great coffee for people looking for a more traditional tasting coffee.
Tasting notes: Crisp apple, raisin, Darjeeling tea
Roasted to medium
Regions: Mururi hillin Sogestal Kayanza, northern Burundi
Ethiopia is the country most people associate with coffee in Africa. Its coffees are known to have more fruity and floral notes, and this coffee variety is wonderfully fruit-forward, giving off a peach, lemon acidity with hints of brown sugar. It’s a great coffee to drink without milk.
Tasting notes: Brown sugar with peach, lemon acidity
Roasted to medium-light
Region: Hambala, part of the Guji Zone
The yellow honey in the name refers to the washing process, when the natural sticky, sugary substance (known as mucilage) is not fully removed from the seed. It’s then set out to dry in the sun. This Costa Rican variety offers the best of what the country is known for in their coffees — hints of chocolate — and it can be enjoyed with or without milk.
Tasting notes: Light brown sugar, chocolate, black currant
Roasted to light
Region: Santa Maria de Dota, Tarrazu
