African Coffee Cupping,Tuesday Oct 28th
We received our shipment of all available 2008 African coffees this morning (Monday) so we will hold a public cupping/tasting of these exquisite coffees on Tuesday, Oct 28th at 7 pm. I know this is late notice, but the coffees are just a couple of days off roast and ready to be tasted and enjoyed. Recently, in Fresh Cup Mag, Scott Merle, from Batdorf and Bronson, wrote a timely article about expanding our palates – read it here. Emily will lead us through the cupping and after, I will be brewing French Presses of all of these coffees for you to enjoy. Yep, it’s free and your palate will be expanded for sure!
Here’s the menu of coffees:
Ethiopia Natural Harar – Natural Processed: rich and full-bodied with amazing flavors of blueberry and spices
Organic Ethiopia Sidamo Moredocofe- Organic, Rain Forest Alliance Certified: this coffee scored 90 points from the Coffee Review and is a rare, exquisite, washed African coffee displaying flavors of citrus and bergamot
Kenya AA Ruiru Estate – Top Auction Lot, Shade grown: I am loving this coffee! Deep fruit tones of currents and berries and a vibrant wine-like acidity
Kenya Peaberry: a solid and delicious coffee – flavors of bittersweet chocolate and grapefruit dominate
Yemen Mocha: Hands down, freakin delicious coffee – thick chocolaty body with intense flavors of dried fruit, spices and smoky scotch. Perfect for this time of year!
