Re: Filipino Coffee -- Kapeng Barako

... and "Vietnamese" coffee (which is actually how they drink it in Malaysia too). But I find the idea of better quality Liberica (and Robusta, for that matter) very intriguing. So if anyone has sources for high quality LIberica or Robusta let me know..and if someone from SM could at ...

Coffee rust problem

... result. Ironically, a search here hasn't turned up any comment from Tom about this problem. Apparently the fungus attacks the arabica and not the robusta, so it's the better coffee that is threatened. Can Tom or someone enlighten us on this?

Re: Dalat (Annam) Highlands, Vietnam: Peaberry Robusta

I have done robustas a few times and had trouble hearing the cracks. Remember, most are low grown, less dense, and the cells walls might be thinner and quieter when water escapes the cells.

Dalat (Annam) Highlands, Vietnam: Peaberry Robusta

Re: Hibrido de Timor - how long to rest

I'm sure Sweet Marias would have much better beans than these.

Hibrido de Timor - how long to rest
