Released into BeanBay now:
Honduras Montana de Comayagua
This fully washed high grown Honduran coffee is a ripper. Most Central American coffees can be a little thin but this one has a surprisingly good body. In the lighter roasts (CS8) the zesty citrus peel acidity shines through, taken a little darker (CS9) it becomes crisp, green apple like acidity. Really interesting coffee that works in a wide range of roast depths and should work in a wide range of brewing styles too.
Cuba Escambray - often referred to as Crystal Mountain this well graded, washed and sun dried coffee is about as good a cup as you will get from Cuba. Malt, dry spice and a drying mouthfeel in the cup. Interesting espresso, excellent long black and would lend itself to other brew methods like filter, plunger and drip too.
El Salvador Comasagua Bourbon
El Salvador Comasagua Bourbon is fully washed, pulped natural and sundried. Well graded it's easy to get a good roast. In the cup it carries a huge body for a Central American coffee and just enough acidity to brighten the finish. Really nice as a single origin espresso, works well in milk and should lend itself to a range of roast depths and brewing methods.
Rwanda Nyungwe is a high altitude coffee grown in high rainfall area. Small beans but I found that roasted to the start of CS10 on a long slow profile it became a bitter sweet cocoa bomb. It's an easy bean to roast as it take the heat in a smooth curve. In the cup it had a great body and worked well as a single origin espresso shot but worked equally great in a latte. Great value coffee.
