FVH in da house -

Finca Vista Hermosa – our first Direct Trade coffee – has arrived.

The jute bags are of a very high quality and simply beautiful. You gotta love the FVH logo. Edwin has even printed our name on the bags.

Of course the first thing we did was taking some samples to roast in varying degrees and with different profiles. We cupped them the next day and we were astounded how well this coffee performs from a super-light to a rather dark roast. It’s clean cup all the way through, but with a complexity that’s rarely found in such a balanced coffee. We have decided on a medium roast, where the chocolate really comes out but without destroying the beautiful acidity.

Vista Hermosa will also be an essential ingredient in our espresso blend, of course in a rather different roast profile. The new blend will be out this week.

    Damn, I thought we were going to be the first ones to use FVH in espresso! The more the better I suppose.
