Jacques and the Bean Stock

Here is the bean report for Friday 4/15/11.

CR Genesis 2376 lbs
Java Sunda Garut 462 lbs
Rwanda Duhingekawa 792 lbs
CR Macho Arce 5544 lbs
Colombia Tolima Florestales
Maximino Gutierrez 468 lbs
Ethiopia Nigusie Lemma 2904 lbs
SM El Papuma Decaf 6600 lbs

So, it looks like Java Sunda Garut is getting down there. If you haven’t had it yet, you should definitely check it out: There’s deep toned apple, red berry (sweetened cranberry), almond and maple. Body is light to medium, and clean. I said that it blew me away, which is maybe strong, but I was continuously impressed and surprised at the sweetness in this coffee.

Also, if you hadn’t noticed, we put the Rwanda Duhingekawa back up on the list, great quintessential Rwanda profile with lots of floral characteristics like orange blossom.

Also, I urge you not to miss the Florestales – Maximino G. This is just a fantastically sweet and clean coffee. So so good.
