Re: Sweet Maria's Choosing Coffee FAQ

... the descriptions will give you a really good idea of what type of sweetness the coffees have. To get you started, take a look at Rwanda and Kenyas also, our Ethiopias are all very sweet with relatively lower clean cup scores. Take a look at our Colombia Finca Pariso as well.

Re: In search of Rwanda Karenge

... year's crop of Rwanda, at least the stuff that SM offered, was amazing. I can't wait! Burundi is similar but also just coming into season. Some Kenya stuff can be similar but Rwanda is definitely its own thing. Just hold tight!

The Central American coffees I usually like are from El Salvador and Panama, those seem to be in short supply. The Kenya coffee I bought this year was closer to the fantastic Kenyas I remember getting in 2010... ...I don't think the fruity dp Ethiopians have been as over the top ...

Re: Slim Pickins?

... from El Salvador and Panama, those seem to be in short supply. I did think SM made up for it by offering some really nice coffees from Brazil. The Kenya coffee I bought this year was closer to the fantastic Kenyas I remember getting in 2010, I haven't seen the descriptive word "sweaty" ...

Re: Slim Pickins?

It was a tough year for Centrals - coffee bean beetle. It will take several years to work it out.

I found no diminished quality from SMs, the Shrub, and the beans available from Cafe Imports. In fact, the Kenyans and Ethiopians this year were stellar.

... will stand on its own. After that a third, Java Malabar - Gunung Haruman, follows in sequence unless I get itchy and make a radical switch to Kenya Embu Gakui Peaberry, which received a stupendous description & score. Alan (asfolks) -- have you tried it yet? Smallest peaberries I've seen, ...

Re: Kenya Nyeri Gatomboya AB

... that one was so nice and many other Gatomboyas from local roasters have been so killer, I went ahead and got a 5 pound bag of the new batch of Kenya Nyeri Gatomboya AA. I'm drinking the second cup of my first roasted batch of it (roasted two days ago) and it's pretty nice, albeit tarter than ...
