So let us start with some good news for those that have been pestering us for a darker roasted coffee, well we have finally buckled. And those who have demanded it are giving us positive feedback. We’ve called the blend Vespresso. What is it like, while I am not a fan of the darker roasted coffees, since the cigar taste becomes more exposed at these roast levels, I prefer the chocolate and caramels that are exposed at correct (or lighter) roast levels.
But for those that insist that sugar and milk belong in a cup of coffee, the feedback has been good. You like to have these additives in you coffee give it a try.
The bad news is that the current crop of the old favourite Yirgacheffe is sold out, and we are struggling to get more. This unique coffee has once again finished in the top 10 this year, and if you think that it is grown in the Sidama region of Ethiopia. Talking about top coffees our Los Naranjos is starting to run low, and the harvest from Columbia this year in not even yet, so we will be missing a favourite for about 3 months.
