SDBV, a new Ethiopia lot, and a new workshop blend

Guatemala Bourbon -Finca San Diego Buena Vista, Ethiopia Illubabor -Camp Cooperative, Espresso Workshop #19 – Indo-Afro-Outro. Some folks have been wondering about this year’s Guatemala BourbonFinca San Diego Buena Vista, well, here it is! A classic Guatemala all the way with caramel, vanilla, red apple, and chocolate roast taste; fantastic as SO espresso. Ethiopia Illubabor – Camp Cooperative is a great cup with moderate brightness, peach, floral hints, chocolate roast tones, and dense body. This lot can handle a bit of a darker roast than other washed Ethioipias. Finally, back to the Exotica record bin for our newest espresso blend Espresso Workshop #19 – Indo-Afro-Outro, Tom’s take on a classic Mokha Java blend with coffees from the horn of Africa and Indonesia. Expect complex rustic and refined elements: hibiscus notes, melon, blackberry, dried apricot, winey fruit, cocoa nibs, and a hint of leather.
