Test batch of the new Ethiopian coffee turned out delicious. Yesterday I was tasting different roast levels on the cupping table. The first 5 cups (from about 2/5 to 4/5 between cracks) smelled like what I wanted and there was a clear progression where as I went through that range the coffee got sweeter and crisper, then (still pre-2C) it just went flat until it started to get toward the darker side where if it weren't so expensive it would be a nice dark blender.

Matched cup 5 on the production roaster perfectly and and currently enjoying a drip brewed pot of that. Will try to get that up on the web site and available to buy later today. Same price as the previous Ethiopian coffee.

New Ethiopian coffee is now available to buy through the web site.

Right now orders aren't likely to ship until Tuesday due to Labor Day and maybe not until Wednesday depending on what the roasting schedule looks like since I'll want to roast fresh for orders after being closed a couple days.


I try to taste well outside the range that I expect I'll want to sell a coffee first because sometimes you find the unexpected, but also because when you find things like that dark blender, maybe it's not something you need for a product right now, but I've got hopefully a several months supply of the coffee and if needs change, that's another trick I can keep on hand to pull out if it's needed.
