This month's featured coffees:
Ninety Plus "Nekisse" Ethiopian N2
The fanatical coffee folks behind Ninety Plus Coffee go to extraordinary lengths to bring forward some of the most carefully grown, processed, and selected coffee in the world. They ascribe unique names to the coffees they import to help the public (and all of us) sort out which coffees are which. We have a limited amount of two offerings including Nekisse, which displays intense fruit notes ranging from blueberries to strawberry and raspberry with a special, silky mouth feel. This is a rare and special Ethiopian coffee, processed beautifully for maximum "fruit impact" and full of super terroir/processing character.
Our signature Espresso has been upgraded with the superb Blue Nile Yirgacheffe we recently acquired. 70% Premium Brasil, and 30% Ethiopian are roasted for full development of sugars resulting in a full bodied espresso that is both clean and silky in mouth feel with clean grapefruit brightness against the rich chocolate canvas of our heirloom brasil. "Blue Hornet" is excellent as a drip coffee, but truly shines as espresso from 5-10 days off of roast. Hornet works well both as a stand-alone espresso and in milk based beverages. In our shop we serve “Blue Hornet" using water temperature of 201.5 Farenheit.
We serve Carmo estate as a pour-over through the V60, but it is a versatile coffee that shows well with variety of brewing methods. Full bodied, this pulped natural, sun-dried coffee sparkles with bright fruit notes and an elegant finish. Carmo Estate is among a handful of the most evolved and thoughtful producers of Brazilian micro-lot coffee.
The Kimel plantation is located in the Western Highlands in the the largest coffee producing province in Papua New Guinea (PNG), approximately 50 Km south of Mount Hagen, near a small town called Banz.
This lovely peaberry displays characteristics of some of the best coffees from Papua New Guinea: nutty and slightly floral with a terrific balance of hazelnut, lemon zest and a mild honey sweetness.
Guatemala: La Jolla Microlot
A special, hard bean, high-grown, super clean washed coffee, La
Jolla is a classic example of the best of Central American coffee.
Limited supply means you will want to take advantage while we
have it. La Jolla works well through the V60 or Chemex.
This superb coffee has achieved a rare, grade 1 designation, meaning nearly zero defect. Uncompromising vigilance in harvesting, selecting, sorting and processing this unique, proprietary blend of heirloom cultivars grown between 1900-2300 meters, result in remarkable clean, sweet complexity in the cup. Bright cherry, lemon zest, and aromatics of jasmine and honeysuckle are splashed on a light cocoa canvas. Blue Nile stands out as among the very best washed Yirgacheffe coffees we have ever offered.
