New Coffees!

Posted on January 21, 2014 by Mount Burns | 0 Comments

There are two new coffees we're very excited about.

We received our first shipment of the Brazil Grota SAO Pedro. The samples I roasted initially were excellent but now that I've "dialed-in" the roast profile, this coffee is amazing! It's like drinking dessert!

With the first sip, there's a prominent chocolate note accompanied by a delightful nuttiness. As it cools a bit, there's a delicious caramel sweetness that develops. Think creme' brulee' In a cup.

It's also a very versatile coffee in terms of brewing methods. We've brewed it as pour-overs, drip brew and French press and have even used it as a single-origin espresso and each way, it's been stellar.

This is a medium roasted coffee yet provides a nice "fullness" to the body.

The second coffee just arrived last week and is equally amazing. It's an Ethiopian Sidamo Peaberry, dry process. This is also a medium roasted coffee and is full of berries, apricot and tropical fruit with a very syrupy body. It has a lot of complexity, making it equally versatile with regard to brewing process.

So far, we've only brewed it as pour-overs and drip brew but I'm confident it will excel as a French press and I plan to also use it as a single-origin espresso starting this upcoming weekend.

We'll be sampling both coffees this upcoming weekend so I encourage you to stop in and give them a try. The shop will be open on Saturday from 9 am - 3 pm.

We've consistently been selling out of the Brazil and sold out of the Ethiopian last weekend, the first weekend it was available.
