Wow, what a great day today! Two packages arrived. All related to coffee, of course!
First is the 15-pound USPS flatrate box, containing, what else, green coffee beans — 5 lbs of Yemen Hufashi and 10 lbs of Ethiopia Yirgacheffe. As usual, distributed at GCBC, sourced from Café Imports. These coffees are my belated birthday gift for myself, as I mentioned in my post a few weeks back. The package reached Iligan, from the US, in 13 days. Not bad.
Yemeni and Ethiopian coffees, ahhh …. still my favorite after two years into this roasting hobby. The Yemen cupped an average of 88.6 at GCBC, while the Yirg averaged at 89.2. I got more of the Yirg simply coz it’s cheaper.
The second came in an LBC package — tree small-sized French presses. These are the plungers I traded with my sangay for three bigger ones, so I could hoard more and more of these press pots, which is now my favorite coffee maker. A proud owner of 8 French presses!
I’m gonna be busy roasting some beans tonight!
