    Ipanema Dulce

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have been thinking which were the best beans I have used this year. I still have a little Red Sea Blend which I keep for special occasions as it was a little expensive for every day. The inexpensive bean that gave me great cups roast after roast until the bag was empty was Ipanema Dulce. I cant remember where I got it but if it came round I might have to order 10kg.

    Re: Ipanema Dulce

    I didnt like the samples of the Ipanema at all so it didnt come from here (unless you picked them out of the compost bin)!
    ;)

    The last Brazil Yellow Bourbon was very good as was the sun dried Monte Carmelo earlier in the year (although 2 very different coffees)

    The Ipanema Dulce is often available, *its a fairly commercial blend and grading is fairly low (small uneven bean sizes) but seeing you have given it your "top value bean" rating I might have to revisit it one day.


    PS: if you like the Red Sea, dont play with Brazil... instead look towards some of the Africans and blend your own.

    I too loved the yellow bourbon as well as the indian tiger mountain, so is there a chance of either of these being in the next beenbay?

    I guess patience is not my strong point, but I do have some good qualities.

    Now I have that song in my head...


    Tall and tan and young and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking
    And when she passes, each one she passes goes - ah
    When she walks, shes like a samba that swings so cool and sways so
    gently
    That when she passes, each one she passes goes - aah.......
