Justin, Parker and I cupped four coffees today. We cupped current crop Costa Rica La Luna. We are excited to see this coffee come back and are no doubt going to offer it again. Its flavors are great with a surprising nuttiness and aroma that makes you think of a Washed Brazil. However, once you taste the brilliant acidity that our roaster produces in this coffee you know why we like it and are glad to see the new crop come in.
The other coffee I'll write about is the Sumatran Tabu Jamu. Another coffee that we are glad to be back this year. This is a coffee Justin discovered last year. I really think he just liked to say Tabu Jamu, but once we cupped it last year we were talking more about the coffee than its name. This year there is a noticible berry taste backed up by what Parker called cooked beets. There is a great lingering flavor that coated the top of my tounge with this coffee. In other words it has a great body and flavor that will work great as an origin coffee.
More centrals will be coming soon. The crops are late this year but so far we have some good quality.
