Managed with some friend’s last weekend to cup the top ten Colombian cup of excellence coffees and was as always impressed. Have some real favourites from them so far, but with the auction not until April hope to work through the rest over the next week. I can’t tell you how tough it is to fit in sample roasting a COE batch, but with the Help of Bruce we managed it.
But this is nothing new I hear you yell, same old same old. On the table I put something a little special (the panama esmerelda of which I’ve talked in the past) and a new Colombian were going to be stocking very soon. Now that’s a tough table but the La Vega Co-operative coffee held its own and above, my 2nd favourite on the table of 11 (lets leave the Esmerelda out of this) of the VERY best coffees from Colombia this year that’s some achievement.
We have the initial lot arriving in the next few days, and then later in the year with the new crop we hope to have a very special micro lot from the co-operative that’s an exclusive for Has Bean. Exiting times and great coffee ahead.
