    Hi samson,

    Personally, I havent heard of that particular variety. Any chance of sending off a small parcel to our resident "cupping" afficiando... Avi? He will be able to describe the qualities of the coffee in a way that makes it easier for us to decide whether we would like to give it a try. Ive never had much luck with Brazil beans, they have generally been too mild in their flavour profile for my palate but am always willing to give a new one a go if it cups out ok.

    Cheers,
    Mal.

    Hi Samson,

    I would love to try out this coffee, and post a cupping review on CS. I will send you a PM to discuss the details.

    Mal, thanks very much for being so kind with your praise. I am glad to be of service.

    Let me know which coffee it is youre testing and Ill see if I cant pick some up locally here and do a review at the same time. RACs have been popular amoung the coop crowd here for some time now and I know the roaster and can most likely manage to aquire some green beans from them.

    Thoroughly deserved Avi... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    And, it would be great if Java can get hold of some too. Two cupping reports will definitely give us plenty to think about.... Good one Java [smiley=dankk2.gif]

    Cheers,
    Mal.

    Im pretty sure Paul Bassett gave this a a bit of a rave on "Living Coffee". Looking forward to reading Avis comments.
