? That's what monasteries do... they have to have manual labor to support themselves.

No, you are right. I suppose I didn't mean that the way it came across. I'm a big fan of Santa Maria Novella products and any number of trappist beers.

If you have a chance, try the Nigusse Lemma, a dry-process Ethiopian, from Barrington Coffee. It's coffees like this that make you wonder why the hell you're pay for anything more: huge floral and fruit notes with lots of sweetness, as well as a big but balanced acid note, and a lingering chocolate aftertaste. If all light roasted coffees were this good, there'd be no one making fun of the 3rd wave hipsters. It's $17 for 12 ounces.

I've been pretty happy with Barrington, they've had a lot of excellent offerings recently.

It's kind of a sad fact that the great coffees of the world come from some of the most politically unstable regions in the world.

Are there really any places where coffee could grow where it isn't being grown on a commercial level now? Australia?

I got a sleeve of the new Fortissio Lungo since @patrickBOOTH mentioned they had incorporated the Malabar Monsoon into the blend.

There is some of the Malabar profile in this but I guess I just don't like lungo/Americanos because the flavor is aqueous well before anything hits your mouth. I'll try it as an espresso tomorrow. #TheWorldAwaits

There are some serious people trying to grow the Vietnamese specialty coffee farms. I think they produce coffee already, but it's not very good. China is probably the other logical area.

I also found the Fortissio Lungo pretty average. Cafezinho de Brazil was terrible. Bukeela / Ethiopia definitely best one I've tried so far.

Indeed, Vietnam is a massive coffee producer, ranking #2 in the world after Brazil. It would be a positive development to see some high-grade beans, though. smile.gif

Trieste as a ristretto, Malabar Monsoon, those were excellent. Roma and Kazar are good when you are super tired in the AM and need something super bracing.

I'm having a pourover of the Stumptown Pacamara Grand Cru. This is a really stunning cup of coffee. I don't know the descriptors for flavors but regardless of what tehy are, there's a lot of them. Is it worth $45 a box? Yeah, I don't know. But a one-time $6 cup doesn't seem outrageous--yes I know the math on that is way whack but whatever.

I've had some great Vietnamese coffee in Vietnam.

Started a coffee collective at work. Finally got me to pull the trigger on the Baritza Encore.



Game changed. Coworkers appreciate it and chip in for beans. Plus it's nice not drinking the same stuff for days on end. Bought some fresh roasted easy drinking "early bird" blend from Whole Foods.
