Featured Roast/Torréfaction de la semaine: Bali is back – Another one!

Blue Moon! This rare coffee comes from small farms in the central volcanic Kintamani Highlands of Bali. Manure rather than pesticides are used on the crop.

I quite liked the Bali Paradise Valley. The Blue Moon, looks to be just as tasty. This is not to say that it same as its predecessor. Where the Paradise Valley was on the sweet side the Blue Moon is less sweet but more earthy with smokey, woody and dark cocoa tones.

For more see here.

Update: Try it in a French Press. As a single origin espresso its nice too.

Featured Roast/Torréfaction de la semaine: Yemen Mocha Ismaili

This time round I am featuring a real treasure. These tiny coffee beans (yes they quite small) produce a beautiful richly flavoured coffee. I have more on the Mocha Ismaili here.

Update: Enjoying it as a single origin Espresso. Also nice as an Americano or a Cortado.

This Week’s Featured Roast/Torréfaction de la semaine: Roaster’s Cheer – Cuba Crystal Mountain

It has been a little while but I had some requests for this coffee. So this time round the Cuban Crystal Mountain coffee is our feature rotation. A rare gem with similarities to the other Cuban coffees roasted here at Art Brûlant –  some of the depth of the Caracolillo, some of the dryness of the Altura Lavado, and a bit of tobacco like both of them. But it is unique. I mention more of that here.20140408-141335.jpg
