the bean stock

If you didn’t notice, we added the first of our new crop Central American offerings of the year this week: Costa Rica “Macho” Arce Caturra.

“The cup has a bright citric acidity and yet balance as well. The light roast has vanilla and refined sugar sweetness with sweet orange notes. Darker roasts have caramel and vanilla, and are a little rummy. The aftertaste is fairly brief, with suggestions of vanilla and hazelnut re-emerging. It’s a bright, lively cup, not overly complex, but very refreshing (if a hot beverage can be characterized as refershing). In darker roasts, the fruits taste more mature and ripe, the brightness has a nice tonality to it.”

Also, here is the stock report as of Friday 4/08/11 (sorry to get this up late, but I did check it against any weekend orders and there are no significant differences on any of the coffees that are getting low).
