Jared is the best! We learn a lot every time we take his classes!
If you are looking for an incredible washed coffee that is easy to roast and is blasting with fruity notes, then this is the one. I thought I made a mistake and roasted a natural when tasting this coffee. I can't believe there is still some left of this bean. I just ordered a small sack, 44lbs, of it. So stoked!
I'm not a big fan of Colombian coffee. This cup is one to be proud of. The honey flavor and the bright acidity are very pleasant. The plum and melon notes come through strongly.
It is a unique cup and I am loving it.It tastes more like a good African coffee than a Colombian.
This Sumatra is by far the cleanest I’ve ever had, and nutmeg really lingers in the aftertaste. Awesome purchase, love it!
What a great price on a very high end coffee!
I like the way this coffee roasts and tastes, its a crowd pleaser
The Guji is one of my recent favorites as well as some of the people I roast for. Good stuff!
Typica and Bourbon varietals are a great mix and this was no exception. The batch I received from Hacea was free from quakers with a moisture content of roughly 10.5%. The unroasted smell was sweet, grassy without a hint of sourness or alcohol. The Rocchio Roasting Process involves very high heat - 600F ambient - and free tumbled to avoid endo-exothermic heat exchange and scorching. This method also requires a SHB to be truly SHB. The beans developed evenly during the roasting process and really popped well at first crack. I took the roast to the end of first crack and began the cooling process. The result was a very even City+ roast which brought out nutty notes along with caramel, brown sugar and a sweet citrus finish. This cupped at a solid 85 and was a joy to drink.
