Hello everyone. It's been a while and I just don't know where the time goes! Sorry for shoddy newsletter writing, one day I might get the hang of it and be a bit more regular too!
First coffee to get a mention is our long standing, big favourite, Indian Monsoon Malabar. Regulars for this coffee know it changes a little over the year and from season to season. Our importers are now offering a more traceable coffee. Coming from the Sakalespur area Manjarabad region in India. It is a dry processed coffee and is monsooned just like our past supplies. (Exposed to the monsoon wind and rain which changes the raw coffee beans flavour and lowers their acidity) What this means for you is that the coffee, hopefully, will be more stable and consistent. It's not quite as bitey as it used to be and a little smoother.
Another favourite El Salvador Pacamara from Finca Las Delicias is back. These beautiful beans are on the milder side (like all washed coffee from this region) sweet and delicate with vanilla and milk chocolate. Some people get florals and citrus. See what you think!
The long awaited Nicaraguan Maragogype (elephant sized bean) is back in stock. Haven't roasted any yet but looking for sweet nuttiness with great body. Be on the site this week.
Our newest coffee and a first for the UK is from Myanmar (Burma). I have a natural and a washed coffee coming this week. Really excited to try this very new offering. If you take a look at our Facebook page you can see some info on this new and exciting project or simply look at news post under this one! Monsoon Estates Facebook
If I ever get time off roasting this may be a great origin for me to visit as we have been following the project closely since it's beginning. Watch this space.
Finally, we have been able to get our hands on more of the beautiful Colombian honey processed from La Esperanza. Be with us soon. I promise!
So you see, lots of exciting new coffees on the way.
Hoping too that you're all having a fabulous summer. Today's been a good one here with Roger Federer winning Wimbledon and Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone. Glass of fizz as I write this before early to bed. I think it's going to be hot in the roastery this week so early starts!
