@Liz there's a family run shop in my neighborhood that sells pretty good coffee - mainly to restaurants and cafes but also for people living locally. 

 

@john.desborough they didn't have Indonesia but look what I found

@john.desborough :joy::rofl:

Also, I’ve resorted to a new coffee low...I had to get Dunkin today. :( I honestly haven’t had their coffee in years, but it was my only choice this morning since I’m out of town and had to quickly get a COVID test before meetings for an event this weekend. I’m not sure I know who I am anymore. :sweat_smile:

I tried the Papua coffee this morning. OMG it’s really strong. The Mexican one I had was sweet and smooth so I need a bit of an adaptation period to this new coffee. Maybe I I need to add less coffee …

 

Found this tasting notes online: 

 

Soft, dense, complex and balanced. With notes of spices, vegetables and ripe fruits. Intensely perfumed.

In the Sigri plantation of Waghi Valley, which was founded by the Carpenter family in 1969, the coffee grows at about 1600-1700 m altitude, and enjoys a cool and mild climate and good rainfall throughout the year. These microclimatic conditions are ideal for the growth of Arabica coffee, especially the ancient Typica variety and Arusha. In Sigri the harvest is done manually between the months of April and September, selecting the ripe grain at the correct point of sugars and acidity. This selected cherry is pulped on the same day with respectful methods for the environment. The whole fermentation process lasts about three days and the parchment is dried in the sun.

 Sigri A has a distinct family connection to Blue Mountain coffee from Jamaica. Source

 

Not sure about soft though.

@Gabriel - nothing is wrong with strong! lol.. but if you are not ready for it lol.. 

The brand i am drinking has been selected and roasted to about twice the caffeine level of your usual beans from the corner store but is so smooth and rich, that you don’t notice the strength of the coffee until you realize that you just lifted the sofa with one hand while helping your son find his toy car (or my daughter’s barbie shoes). 

sounds like a good cup for a kickstart in the morning !!

cheers on keeping the heart rate in check today

and thank you for the tasting notes

I had another cup this afternoon and it was easier to drink… I can see it’s just a lot more intense. My it’s definitely  good coffee.

Coffee addition is really a beast ha! I thankfully went to a regular cafe this morning, thank goodness. 

@Gabriel That coffee sounds so good though!! You can never go wrong with too much coffee.

Woot!! Look at you all, moving up in the Community World!

I didn’t take any photos of this because to-go cups aren’t that impressive, but I’ve been drinking coffee for the past weekend over at Manhattanville Coffee, if you ever happen to find yourself in this area of NYC!

Hi all - back to regular beverages after my second COVID shot last week! I never thought I’d be interested in the Nespresso capsules, but they have some really decent coffee. Currently going through a box of the one below!

@john.desborough I’m definitely in that boat ha! I tried to refill the pods, but I really love their coffee and just popping it in and getting coffee right away. I’m becoming lazy.
