Ordering Some New Green Coffees
Last week I received a few coffee samples that we haven’t had before. Two coffees are from Indonesia, one from Africa, and one from Central America.
- Sumatra Gayo Linge Fair Trade Organic
- Java Taman Dadar Rainforst Certified Organic
- Rwanda A+ Gatare Station Bourbon
- Salvadore SHG Santa Rita
The Sumatra Gayo Linge is a very nice coffee. It is smooth and sweet with hints of dark chocolate and black cherries. I really love this one and I think it will be a great addition to our offerings. Many of our friends keep asking for Sumatra because they loved our last one. Hold tight, we will have another great Sumatra soon.
The Java Taman Dadar is another good coffee. This one has dark chocolate notes too, but with some spiciness! Like nutmeg and cinnamon. I think this coffee would do real well as a dark roast too. It would also work well blended with our Ethiopia Harrar as a nice Moka Java blend.
The coffee from Rwanda is different than any of our previous offerings. It is very brite and juicy, like grapefruit. If you like brite, Kenyans, you’ll love this coffee. I like it, but I am not sure if I will buy this one.
The Salvador Santa Rita is a very fruity coffee. I brewed it this morning using the Chemex brewer. It is tart, with a medium body. It is has some green apple notes which I am not crazy about. It has mellowed since I first received the sample.
I will definitely be purchasing the Sumatra Gayo Linge and the Java Taman Dadar, both organic. I am not sure about the others. I may wait a bit until the new Costa Ricans and Guatemalans arrive.
