Coffees from EIGHT countries!!!


Wow! How did my green coffee stash accumulate this much, with beans from eight countries!!!

I never had this much variation since I started hoarding green beans over two years ago.

Left to right, top to bottom: Cordillera Bobok, Sumatra Iskandar, Costa Rica Tarrazu Sta. Elena, El Salvador Finca Alaska, Ethiopia Harrar Ayinage, Tanzania Organic AB Hope Project, Brazil Moreninha Formosa, Yemen Hufashi, & Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Koke.

How fancy their names are! Most are named after the places where they’re grown, the region, the province, sometimes down to the name of the estate or farm.

Well, that’s really not much, compared to the coffeegeeks in rich countries. I heard some would hoard as much as half a ton, in their house’s basement. With burlap bags full of green coffee from 47 countries.

Gotta hold a coffee party one of these days. Lucky you if you’re from somewhere near; wait for the text message in your cellphone. You know who you are. :-)

Kape ta bay!!!
