This month we're bringing you a diverse set of coffees with different origin countries, varieties, and processing, yet all expressing variations of clean sparkling fruit.
Adelino Urbano, from his farm Finca La Reina in Nariño, demonstrates the fantastic contemporary potential of hybrid varieties. Even a few years ago it was exceedingly rare to get castillo and cenicafe tasting like this.
A shining star of the year so far, Gakenke is doing the heavy lifting of making up for last year where we didn't receive a single Burundi coffee. This red bourbon is everything we want out of a washed Burundi: exceedingly sweet, articulate, sparkling, yet unmistakably from Burundi.
Lastly, a wonderful natural processed caturra from Melania Cueva in Loja Ecuador. In a time when even plain natural coffees are tasting exceedingly funky, Melania's attention to detail and restraint have resulted in a cup that expresses some of the intensity of a natural without sacrificing terroir and varietal expression.
