Upcoming Roast Coffee Pairing: Classic Cups from Two Different Regions 10/5/11

This pairing is a fine example of the contrasts between a classic Central America cup: Guatemala Antigua Finca Cabrejo and a classic Africa cup:  Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Dumerso Cooperative.  The main difference will be in the types of acidity present in each cup.  The Antigua should display a well-defined, bright malic acidity coupled with blackberry and toasted nut, while the Yirg will have more ripe and slightly winey fruit with a big tangy finish.  We’ll keep both of these coffees in the City+ range to highlight these regional differences.
