Today I am enjoying a very nice organic Sumatra from Salt Lake Roasting Company in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Coffee always tastes better when on vacation.

All the best,

Darker today. Cuban. Peaberries. Delicious and rich and chocolatey. Way, way darker than I'm accustomed but man, I gotta admit, it's like candy. French pressed.
From The Coffee Warbler in Vancouver.
Later, I inadvertantly mixed a half cup into my french pressed 16oz PNG and it tasted pretty fine. I'll try it again tomorrow and pay attention to the descriptors...Never thought I'd be blending in the cafe!
Brazil Poco Fundo- Barefoot Coffee Roasters- Thanks Andy! What an amazing experience every time. Love the customer response after they ask for the French roast and asking them to try this lightly roasted Natural Sundried...I love the "ahaa" and then the "Hey this isn't bitter"...Ding Ding, we have a winner.

Finca Vida Joven from Matagalpa, Nicaragua. (Roasted on the farm)

Compelx coffee with medium body and spicy acidity.
Daterra Reserve Espresso... Not quite fully rested yet.

Should be better in a couple of days.
Colombia Bucaramanga Especial from Innkeeper's Fresh Roasted Coffee in Galesburg, IL

Really quite good. Baked apples and apricots with a tinge of a pummelo or really ripe grapefruit as it cools. A spicy, almost clove-y finish. Very nice. I'll post up some pics of a cupping and tasting event I did with their coffee over the weekend.

I love finding hidden gems in little towns when you're not expecting much. If you happen to find yourself in Galesburg, stop in. Skip the espresso bar and order up a press.
These coffees were great, Aaron. Developing a national industry in Rwanda from the ground up will yield some interesting results down the road, assuming the peace holds in the region.
Smaller scale, high quality export-producing farming can act as a real stabilizer for a nascent economy.
And again, the coffees are phenomenal!
I'm enjoying Gimme!'s Asobagri Coop Huehuetenango.
Molasses, Cherry, and something... Sweet finish.
I'm going to make more, but later.
I had my usual two double macchiatos at MilkBoy Coffee in Ardmore, PA.
Good ol' Toscano from our CCC friends in Durham, NC.
Thanks for the spro.
A clover'd cup of Batdorf & Bronson El Salvador Pacamara ... big beautiful beans, nice cup.

Incidentally, Jason, it was around 45 today and beautiful in Philly.
I'm just sayin'.
Doubles of Black Cat Espresso courtesy of Intelligentsia. I love this stuff.
Esmeralda roasted by Discovery in Victoria. French press. Very nice.....It's a little more than 2 weeks after roasting but it hasn't lost much - if anything. When does this stuff peak?!?
