Things are looking beautiful out here in Old Bisbee. The low valleys are green from the monsoon rains and everything has been springing to life. I love this time of year - the air is sweet and the coffee tastes just right.
Oooh. Tanzania Ruvuma Peaberry
I'm happy to celebrate the summer season with another delicious & unusually pliable African varietal. Tanzania Ruvuma Peaberry is a rustic coffee with a peculiar layering of evolving flavors. There's a touch of honey in this seductive cup overlaid with a vanilla-sweet aroma. What I love most is the slightest hint of wine-berry and apple in the finish. The spicy aromas become more noticeable as the cup begins to cool.
What makes this Tanzanian Peaberry a wonderful brew is it's exquisite versatility. It has a bright, sweet character when it's hot in the cup. Poured over a bed of ice, however, and these flavors migrate, turning into something more spicy, with hints of cinnamon and cedar. This is truly a magnificent experience.
If you're looking for a sweeter coffee experience, try the Ethiopian Natural Sidamo. There's an unexpected citrus snap in the cup that makes this coffee more like the darkest, most intense black tea you've ever had. There's nothing like it anywhere in the world.
Panama Boquete Classico
Our Panama Boquete Classico grows at the base of the Baru Volcano. The beans flourish in rich, volcanic soil giving you a sensuous and velvety mouth-feel. This cup overflows with almond aromas and a hint of toasted sugar. There's a mature, self-confident complexity to this coffee that is completely unique when compared with other Latin American coffees.
A little further north you'll find Costa Rican La Pastoria Tarrazu. This coffee will enchant you with fruity notes and a subtle hint of sweetness and spice. Where African coffees are wild, exuberant, and occasionally overwhelming, your Costa Rican coffee is light, consistent, and perfectly balanced.
