A Crisp Costa Rica, A Floral Ethiopia, 2 New Decafs

Really nice organic Costa Rica lots from small estates are rare. This Costa Rica Organic La Yunta Estate is a crisp, clean, bright cup with floral aroma. Now, if you want to talk flowery coffee, this is the one. Ethiopia Organic Wet-Process Koratie is the sister lot to our Koratie Dry-Process lot. The difference is night-and-day, but both are incredibly aromatic coffees. Candy-like sweetness, peach nectar, watermelon, lemon drops; the descriptors for Koratie Wet-Process are extensive and impressive! We have a new lot of Costa Rica Tarrazu KVW Decaf, surprisingly bright and fruited for a decaf, and a balanced Fair Trade decaf, Nicaragua FTO Dipilto WP Decaf.

[quote comment="18146"]This Costa Rica "La Yunta Estate" was really good out of my Bodum vac. pot the other day. It's a very bright, sweet, delicate cup. While I'm talking about Costa Rican coffees, I was just curious why you guys don't seem to be offering any La Minita Tarrazu this year. Is it that you had so many of these other special "micro-lots" already lined up and didn't have room for it? Or is it that you feel the crop wasn't up to par this year? Or could it be that you are waiting for the "heart of the harvest" before offering it? Just curious.....[/quote]

Yeah me too. I am ready to get 20 pounds of the Costa Rica La Minita Dota Tarrazu, but it isn't offered here. During an economy like this, the tried and true staples should be offered, that is the main source of a steady income. Anyway, anybody know where else I can get it? Thanks.

It's a good choice for the vac pot I think. I cupped Yunta against LM and others and it while not the same flavor profile, was so much more complex. That's one reason you don't see the latter this year. When we are talking MicroLots, it's like pairing a small coffee buyer, and a small coffee producer, both passionately working on different ends of the spectrum but with the same dedication. It's really the right match for us. Large farms think about the things large businesses anywhere think about, from their product to their employees to their methods to their approach to new ideas. It can be alienating for us, and they don't take our concerns to heart, whereas we now have partners in CR that, when I am brainstorming some wacky experiment (ie RIP coffee and the like) they are as interested and motivated to try it as we are... -Tom
