    Royal Coffee - African Red Sea blend - $17.50kg*

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    This month we have also secured a 40kg bag of African Red Sea blend which is a proprietary blend of Ethiopian & Yemen Mocha coffees developed by Royal Coffee of California.

    Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea, Inc of Chicago are one of the larger buyers of this coffee & their tasting notes reveal the following:

    A unique blend of African coffees fused in just the right proportions to achieve an elegant, balanced cup that highlights some of the most cherished characteristics of three different growing regions together in one package. Potent blueberry notes combined with a subtle lemongrass sweetness and hints of dark chocolate in a medium bodied setting. Go ahead and tantalize your palette. Highly recommended for lovers of Ethiopian coffees.
    This is the first time that we have offered a blended green bean (with the exception of the decaf).

    There is only a single 40kg bag of this available for CSrs so I have limited it to 1kg lots.

    If this is your first CoffeeSnobs order (or your details have changed) please email the below information to: polls@CoffeeSnobs.com.au and then we will have the correct details for invoicing at the end of the polls. Fail to do so and your vote will be cancelled and your coffee offered to someone who missed-out.


    CoffeeSnobs Name:
    Real Name:
    Preferred name on the receipt:
    Email address for invoice:
    Delivery Address:
    Phone (MB or BH):


    Note: the postal address should be somewhere that is attended during the day to avoid the delivery getting "carded" and you having to pick it up at a local post office or depot. Work, pub, local milkbar, grandmas house all make sense.

    fixed. :)

    The justlooking option doesnt allow you to remove your vote. I can set a time that votes can be changed for but ony when I post the poll as far as I know.

    Will sort this gotcha for the next polls.

    Found on http://www.coffeeproject.com/mcart4/index.cgi?code=3&cat=8 (gotta love google):

    Red Sea Blend- Bulk
    - A pre-blend of Yemen Mocca, Ethiopian Harrar, and Ethiopian Natural Sidamo (although on occasion Ghimbi may be used instead). Its one of those blends that defy logic. Blending is usually an opportunity to bring different continents together, rather than mix coffees from the same area. But in this case, the three beans turn into an extremely winey and complex cup. The chocolate taste hidden in the Harrar, the fruitiness of the Yemen Mocca, the wild nature of all three coffees.... Just great! (Watch out, Red Sea Blend contains some smallish beans which may catch in the drum of your alpenrost.)

    "Cheryl here. Red Sea Blend is one of my favorites. James is right about every bean being different, and each person roasting it to his/her own taste--but I can give you my own preferences and opinions for this one. I like to roast Red Sea to a solid full city, maybe just a hair beyond depending on how Im going to brew it.

    Because this is a blend, the various beans will hit second crack at various times. The Yemen in particular is a very dense little bean that will come into second just behind the others-- I take it to the point where second crack is just beginning to ramp up. Red Sea right at full city will result in a fruitier undertone, while taking it a bit further (just a bit, youll lose all the fruit if you french roast it) will highlight more of the chocolates.

    Red Sea is pretty versatile--its good in a drip or vac pot, and it also does well as espresso. Give it a good 24-48 hours of rest if you can resist the aroma, because thats when the Yemen will really come into its own."

    Hmmm ... Royal themselves have sold out: http://www.royalcoffee.com/offerings.html

    My theory: its all in the name. That said, I just tucked into some yirg/timor that I roasted the other day - yummmmmm!

    I think that Growers Espresso have it on tap at the moment. They usually do only Australian stuff; might be interesting to check it out ... pity I dont have the address on me! Not too sure, but I think that I spied a bag of it at St A as well ...

    Cheers,

    Luca
