    Ive got this remarkable ability to predict one of the coffees on offer on specific beanbays. Ive done it quite a number of times already.

    Ive got mine, so Im not worried.

    I have to agree. Yirgi is my all time favourite coffee. I love to roast it as it roasts so evenly. It is wonderful as a SO espresso. I use this in a blend (against the advice of an alleged industry expert) and I was happy with the results. I have tried a commercial blend that was the same as mine, except it had Costa Rican Tarrazu as well and it was truly amazing.

    How often does Yirgacheffe Peaberry come on to the market? Has anyone tasted it? I was just out in my shed roasting, and wondered if this existed. A quick google confirmed its existence, so now Im wondering if the peaberry is better than the "standard" yirg...

    Good beans come and good beans go. Dennis doesnt have any at the moment :(

    Hes decided to hold out until Andy can source the usual quality we have become accustomed to in beanbay. 8-)

    Bought a bag from St Ali as did not have time to roast. I think it has been the best coffee I have had in ages. Would love to try roasting this myself - so add me to the list!!!
