April Snows Bring May Flows?
Sure that's how it goes here in Alberta...
Here we are looking at the bleakness of snow falling and wondering: "What the heck?!?" Spring still seems a possibility - the birds are a-twittering, the buds are a-popping, and the roaster girls are a-jumping thanks to the java we enjoy. And we do enjoy a lark or two, but this is seriously good coffee folks: Well, we have so much to be thankful for anyway like the New Coffee Of The Month:
This lot is packed with a vibrant regional profile and exceptional traceability to 4 family-owned farms located in the Copan department of western Honduras. El Azaharillo is a 25-acre farm owned by Gumercindo Rodriguez. Finca Santa Rosita is a 12-acre farm owned by Juan Jesus Gutierrez. El Tambora is a 34-acre farm owned by Jose Ramon Bueso. And La Montañita is a 17-acre farm owned by Napoleon Mejia. Each producer has their own micro-mill where they carefully harvest cherries, depulp, ferment, wash and gently dry the parchment. The harmony between these producers in post-harvest practices is a critical step to achieve a clean and consistent blend.
