Before we jump into the NINE (9) new beans, I want to let everyone know that the dates are set for the next set of in depth, full day, Drum Roasting Profile Seminar. Spots (limited to 10 each) are starting to fill up.
Roasting Seminar 2019

Colombia Tumaco The immediate impression is one of soft creaminess, honey, a little malt
Dominican Republic Oko Caribe Wood and red fruits dominate the aroma. The flavor is juicy red fruits such as sweet cherry and huckleberry.
Haiti - PISA 2018 Organic First impressions are nutty (pistachio) and minerally (dry tannins). It is a soft and slightly meek or reserved flavor profile that opens up as you continue
