Gisuma Receives 93 Points!

CR_2016_93_300dpi

We received a 93 point score for this coffee in August of 2016 from Coffee Review!

Blind Assessment:

Deeply sweet, with spice undertones. Vanilla, cocoa powder, rosemary flower, gardenia, ripe pear in aroma and cup. Juicy, rich acidity; delicate, silky mouthfeel. The crisp, gently drying finish is cocoa-toned and redolent of vanilla.

Notes:

Produced entirely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica by the Gisuma Cooperative, situated close to Lake Kivu and the Rusizi River. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. Rwanda’s impressive potential as fine coffee producer has come to fruition over the past decade owing to the industry of its growers, generous support from international aid agencies and the commitment of North American specialty coffee roasters. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast. Visit www.barringtoncoffee.com or call 800-528-0998 for more information.

The Bottom Line: A crisp, sweet Rwanda cup with appealing spicy-floral intrigue.

Produced by Juan Simón Velásquez from the Caturra and Bourbon varieties of Arabica. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying.

We received a 96 point score for this coffee in March of 2016 from Coffee Review!

Blind Assessment:

Delicately sweet and intricately composed. Black currant, dried jasmine, frankincense, cocoa butter, candied ginseng in aroma and cup. Buoyant, juicy acidity; luxuriously silky mouthfeel. Black currant and cocoa butter in the rich, elegant short finish, candied ginseng in the sweet, resonant long.

Notes:

Southern Ethiopia produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This lot was processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Southern Ethiopia coffees processed with this method typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity, with a particular emphasis on floral notes.

The Bottom Line: An exceptional value in an elegant, powerfully expressive washed Ethiopia cup.

Flavor Navigator

We’re excited to share with you the latest addition to our website—our Barrington Coffee Flavor Navigator.

Now when you go to learn about a coffee, in addition to its written description you will see a unique graphic diagram that describes its aromatic and taste characteristics. We hope that this will provide an easy to use visual guide that will enrich the way we communicate with you about our offerings.

Here we have two Flavor Navigators, one for our Barrington Gold and our Kochere(Ethiopia):

Gold webflavKochere webflav

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Through side by side comparison we can understand how coffees share similarities and how they differ.

The Gold is chocolaty, spicy and nutty. The Kochere is floral, fruity and herbaceous. The Flavor Navigator suggests that these coffees are in direct contrast with one another. We understand that they offer radically different experiences in the cup and that they appeal to very different tastes.

In this example we compare our (413) with our Kalledeverapura (India)

413 webflavKalle webflav

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Notice how these coffees appear very similar, with each expressing qualities of nut, chocolate and caramel. While these two coffees still offer their own distinct experiences, they share a lot in terms of overall characteristics. We would suggest that they appeal to similar palates.

Whether you are looking to try something similar to what you already know you like, or you are curious to mix things up with a little change, we hope our Flavor Navigator will help to guide you along your way!

Juliette Receives 93 Points!

CR_2015_93_300dpi

We received a 93 point score for this coffee in November of 2015 from Coffee Review!

Blind Assessment:

Delicate, floral, intricate. Rose, Brazil nut, sweetly pungent frankincense and liquorice bark in aroma and cup. Soft, richly composed acidity; velvety, plump mouthfeel. Crisply drying, nutty, long finish.

Notes:

Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also spelled Geisha). With its elegantly elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, often chocolaty cup, the Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world’s most unique coffees. Processed by the pulped natural or “honey” method, in which the skin is removed from the coffee fruit immediately after picking, but the seeds or beans are dried with all or part of the sweet pulp, or fruit flesh, still adhering to them. This particular Gesha is produced on the Ninety Plus Gesha Estates. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast. Visit www.barringtoncoffee.com or call 800-528-0998 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who are intrigued by a delicately intense floral and nutty cup with fine structure and intricate aromatics.
