Mexico el Triunfo Arabigo
Mexico el Triunfo Arabigo is the bean that Zed won the 2012-2013 home roasting section of the Golden Bean competition with, it is also the "secret" control bean of the 2016 Golden Bean Home Roasting Competition. This is a old growth hairloom varietal called Arabigo and is a washed process bean. Closely related to Typica the Arabigo is a bold coffee in the cup with a touch of acidity, great body and a dose of spicy savoury flavours on the finish. Roast slowly to a CS10 to get a stunning spiced cocoa espresso.
This Panama Geisha is fully washed and screen graded to AA grade in size and SHB due to the high altitude it was grown. It's very easy to roast due to this grading and density.
In the grinder you are met with a huge floral cloud of aromas and in the cup the velvet body leads to some bright citrus zing and a softer nutty finish. Lovely coffee and interesting to try against it's Typica sister from the same farm. Due to the price this is offered in 1kg lots.
This Panama Typica is fully washed and screen graded to A grade in size and SHB due to the high altitude it was grown. It's very easy to roast due to this grading and density.
In the cup the syrupy body releases sweet stone-fruit flavours and a deep, long lingering coffee explosion across the palate. It's no secret that the Typica variety is one of my favourites and the one I select the most in blind cupping. This stunning Central American coffee is offered in 1kg lots to allow you to try it and its Geisha sister from the same farm.
