Coffee is seasonal, and we generally see new coffee arrivals every month in the roastery. This month has been a good month for coffee in Hull.
Today we’ve released our first box of Kenyan coffee – Karimikui AB and it’s tasting stunning. Next week we’ll see a return of a coffee that impressed us last year, El Salvador Las Meninas. The Las Meninas will also be an ongoing feature in our espresso blend, Jones. Test roasts to ascertain blend proportions are scheduled for next week. We’ve also released our first ever coffee from Honduras – the Altos de Erapuca and seen our first Costa Rican micro-lot bought through Falcon Speciality, the really beautiful tasting Finca Santos. Oh and a new decaf to boot too – Brazil Santa Lucia Decaffeinated.
No doubt, August will some some more great arrivals. Until then, below is a synopsis of each of the coffees described above.
Costa Rica Finca Santos
Displays sweet, clean citrus acidity, buttery body with notes of cherry and cocoa powder.
Honduras Finca Altos de Erapuca
Has a lively and pointy lemon style acidity with notes of caramel and sweet orange on the finish.
Kenya Karimikui AB
Displays an intense lemon like acidity with jasmine florals and underlying red berry and blackcurrant notes. Sweet and complex.
Brazil Santa Lucia Decaffeinated
Shows great sweetness, notes of toasted hazelnut and plenty of chocolate.
Enjoy the coffee!
