Nice ad campaign. :-?
I have written and published an article about Coffea its species and varieties. It is about 33 pages long and includes chapters about botanic and botanical history. Most of the work includes (and thatīs the mane theme) lists of Coffea its species and varietals with descriptions and additional info.
It can be found on a specially dedicated blog: http://genuscoffea.wordpress.com
It is published in two (at the present moment) languages: English and Estonian (originally written language).
Have a good and interesting reading.
ps - Pleas Share that article with as many coffee pros and connoisseurs as possible. The idea of publishing that work is to bring that information to as many people as possible.
Any thoughts, feedback or discussion here will be appreciated!
Nice ad campaign. :-?
A bit harsh. I didnt see anything promotional about it and the article is provided gratis.Originally Posted by 26393E3D3422393E25303D3E2734510 link=1300703760/1#1 date=1300759306
Not after I removed his social networking link ;)Originally Posted by 6E64716666697D7B080 link=1300703760/2#2 date=1300760226
Actually there is a slight promotion but it is not in my materialistic interest. It is more in the interest of all coffee geeks and pros etc.
As you may read the article is ment to share for FREE with all the coffee people.
Go, copy it as much as you like!
I could put this article on paper and sell that through internet only. But no, this is not the point. Sharing is the point. What is the point if one makes lot of work writes a long paper and then leavs it into his table drawer? There is no point. So i decided to share it through coffee related forums.
Hope, at least, you read it and it was interesting and you found something new about the topic.
Thanks, found it an interesting read and booked marked it via a number of the social networking links as provided by C/Snobs.Originally Posted by 3A222D383839570 link=1300703760/4#4 date=1300816079
I certainly did and thanks for sharing. I have an interest in the historical and botanical aspects of coffee.Originally Posted by 0D151A0F0F0E600 link=1300703760/4#4 date=1300816079
What is the purpose of Appendix one as it seems to reproduce Chapter 7 but without descriptions. I assume this is the intent:
The only criticism I can make is that the term species has no singular form (ie one species, two species, etc). Specie is a monetary term.The appendixes embody some lists of coffee varieties, designed to help the enthusiasts to orientate in the field of the varieties of C. arabica in a bit easier manner.
Anyway, welcome to CS Raimond and look forward to more of your contributions. Google Translate detects your spiel in About as Estonian. Is that where you live now - if so, it appears to have a very healthy coffee culture.
Very interesting read and thanks for going to the bother of translating it too :)
I wish to congratulate you on your most detailed and informative paper on Coffea.
Thanks for giving us a chance to have a read.
I never knew there were so many species. Of course I knew about C Arabica and robusta (C. canephora). The most common varieties. I also knew about bourbon as it has been planted here in Australia, near Berry, south of Sydney.
I have used maragogype, however I didnt realise it was a distinct variety but thought it was describing the bean size.
The Cup Of Excellence Nicaragua 2010 beans on sale here in BeanBay are maragogype.
It is obvious that you have written this originally in Estonian before translating it to English. You and your helpers have a very good knowledge of English as a second language. I have zero knowledge of Estonian.
While I was taught French at school for one year and failed, the only languages I learned at school, other than some English, were Australian slang and bad language (swearing).
I will send a personal message with suggestions for minor improvements to the translation.
After reading this I am looking forward to Andy getting some green Geisha for BeanBay.
Thanks for your kind feedback. This forum has most active feedbackers :) and I am quite happy to read them. All other coffee related formus have readers only, but thats ok.
Actually I came here to bring some news:
Now You all can download the article and print it if you wish.
It is available as pdf file.
In the blog I made "downloads" page where you can find the links. but I will make it easier for you and insert the link to the file here:
I will try make some corrections in the nearest future on the article. Unfortunately I have the mistakes in the pdf file as well. how embarrassing :(
Thank for your mark. Iīll try to fix that.Originally Posted by 777D687F7F706462110 link=1300703760/6#6 date=1300835510
Yes, I live in Estonia and we do have Healthy coffee culture, and we try to cultivate specialty coffee culture and make people understand the difference between coffees. Single origins etc. ;)Originally Posted by 777D687F7F706462110 link=1300703760/6#6 date=1300835510
Good news indeed. Thank you for sharing.Originally Posted by 2A323D282829470 link=1300703760/9#9 date=1312218258
There are plenty of readers (lurkers) here as well. You only have to open the homepage, scroll to the bottom and see the number of guests.
Good to hear. I love hearing about other countries. Are you able to get single origins from all over the world?Yes, I live in Estonia and we do have Healthy coffee culture, and we try to cultivate specialty coffee culture
Yes - we have now 15 different coffees in house.Originally Posted by 52584D5A5A554147340 link=1300703760/11#11 date=1312236521
to bring out some of coolest ones:
Kenya Tekangu AA
Ethiopia Yirg. Hafursa
Panama Finca Carleida Geisha :D
El Salvador La Fany
and then we have bunch of other stuff:
Bolivian Mamani mamani
Guatemala La Perla El Quish
Nicaragua El Limoncillo

We get the greens and I roast them, mostly into a light "filter" roast and then espressos too.
For light "filter" roast we doo only single estates, no blending.
