Today I’ve managed to escape the roastery for the day, for a tasting down in London with our importers. So I’m on the train and really excited about tasting some of the first arrivals and pre shipment samples of some centrals, I hope to have some thing to talk to you about tomorrow, and have a clearer idea of the way forwards this year with some crops. Preliminary discussions and agreements pending this cupping have gone very well and I am really excited about it.
Then tomorrow I’m going to spend the day with some of the Monmouth guys at there roastery to cup and shoot the breeze.
I hope that tomorrow or Sunday I can tidy up the plans of what coffees we are stocking this year, why they are special to us, and some cupping notes.
And then the weekend I have lots of work to do to get the “shocking news” up and out there with some changes to the blend line up. Its a busy weekend ahead, but what’s new.
