This Week’s Featured Roast/Torréfaction de la semaine: Ethiopian Sahama Micro-Lot Gr 1

This wild-harvest Ethiopian Coffee has made it around as the feature again.

Drink some history, and keep in mind that this type of coffee may be the first to suffer as a result of climate change.

Featured Roast/Torréfaction de la semaine: Yemen Mocha Ismaili

A Yemen Mocha to savour. The Yemen Mocha Ismaili.  Tiny little beans with a great deal going for them.

I have previously talked a little about the history of coffee in Yemen, as it refers to the other Yemen coffee that we have carried, the Yemen Mocha Mattari. You will find some of that here and here.

One of the highest grown coffees in Yemen, at altitudes of over 2000 metres (6000 – 7000 ft), the Ismaili is one of the countries most coveted. Even locally!

This is a coffee with great complexity. Not the sweetest, but rather spicy, full flavours.

Not Really Coffee!

This is not really a coffee thing except that I know that some of these people really do like their coffee. We know who you are! A triple anyone?

The LBS Gravel Battle 2017 is being held tomorrow (June 3, 2017), starting at 9:00 am,  and the staging area for the start and finish of the race will be right here in front of Art Brûlant.
