I have about 200g left of the Fortuna... After that I'm done - I'll be lost. 

I'm going to have to retire to looking longingly out the window waiting for the next shipment from @Hasi :(

The Monkey Puzzle tree is also called a Chilean Pine ? 🥶 . Apparently they are growing coffee on Easter Island .. But the tree also grows in Argentina 🤷‍♂️.. But I also remember one walking to school in Putney 😂

This is what happens when you sell one of your la pavs instead of doing the decent thing & taking it into work.

Damn, now the nights are drawing in I find myself wanting something with a bit more of a bold flavour to cut through milk - I assume the Ethiopian is quite fruity?

Correct! Do we have a winner?

This is washed Caturra and Castillo, the latter being a dedicated Colombian variety/breeding and predecessor of Catimor.

Beans are called "Gran Galope" and stem from various smallholder farms of Pitalito, department of Huila. They are collected from top lots that just didn't reach speciality scores. While this may sound less favourable, we find them to be good stuff with a lot of potential! Hoping that I could unlock most of it so you lot were able to enjoy proper shots

As a side note, we strongly believe in social moves when it comes to sourcing. This project helps farming families to sell their produce still at a profit. Otherwise they would've had to accept commodity price - even though they've invested extra time and money to harvest speciality grade beans.


Looking forward to the next round now
