The coffee of the Month : August 2019 : Rwenzori Mountain SL28 SL34 - Natural (85+), Ouganda
Tasting : Notes of tropical fruits on the nose, a very nice complex acidity with cherries, mangos, apples, and well balanced by a nice sweetness.
Sourcing notes: Uganda has a justified reputation for producing some of the worst arabicas in the world. It is quite the opposite with this batch from a cooperative that has focused on quality, training small producers and paying more for quality. We support
This coffee is recommended for :
Coffees of September and October
September 2019: El Manzano Orange Bourbon - Natural Honey (88+), Salvador
Tasting : An enticing nose of fruits, a soft and velvety body, notes of milk chocolate and exotic fruits, superb acidity. Perhaps the best Salvadoran coffee this year.
Sourcing notes : Each year, Emilio releases a few exceptional batches in ultra-limited quantities. We had the chance to taste them on the farm just after harvest. This Bourbon Orange scored best in the tasting. .
October 2019 : La Floresta, Washed Maracaturra (88+), Colombia
Tasting: Gourmet aromas of chocolate and lemon, round body with creamy and fruity flavours of cherries, orange blossom and pomegranate.
Sourcing notes : Farm discovered during the sourcing of the Bourbon Project. Even though focused on the selection of the best Bourbons in the region, we could not resist this wonderful nano-batch of Maracaturra. Maracaturra is the speciality at La Floresta. Growing naturally in these plantations, more than a third of the production of this 2-hectare farm is now taken up with Maracaturra.
