Moka Kadir blend for fiesta!


Time to celebrate, as my city is celebrating its fiesta in honor of its patron, St. Michael the Archangel. Just timely that I have one great blend for the occasion — SweetMaria’s Moka Kadir Blend. Courtesy of Michelle, my cousin Tipoy’s wife, who asked me to give her a one-on-one tutorial on basic photography. They’re from California, on vacation for the fiesta and to celebrate the first birthday of their daughter Ariana.

The big day is tomorrow, and there’s a lot of reasons to celebrate — Dad just came home from the hospital, our daughter Kara also came home from college, after dealing with the floods in Manila.

This is how SM’s Tom describes the Moka Kadir blend: “This is a powerful blend of coffees from the Red Sea area, from Yemeni coffees on one side, and Ethiopian coffees on the other…. It incorporates three excellent dry-processed coffees that contribute to a huge body, strong bittersweet chocolate roast-taste, and intense fruity aromatics.”

If I can name my top three favorite coffees, this would be one of those, including the Harrar Bagersh from Ethiopia and the Yemen Mokhas. Shows my bias for the Ethiopian and Yemen coffees. Coffee, after all, originated in these areas.

Ahh … life is good!

Kape ta bay!

    Saw your getting your green beans from friends and vendors. When you ship from vendors, how bad is customs for you?

    I’ve avoided Philippine Mail for some time, after 100% tariffs turned my cheap tees and tools into expensive ones.

    Still, I’d love to find a way to affordably get some good green beans into the country :D

    the local post office here charge me at most 35 pesos. that’s for a 15 or 18lb box. if smaller, say 3lbs, they usually don’t charge me at all. but for bigger orders, a friend or relative in the US will send me a small balikbayan box via LBC. no customs duties. via post office, coz via air, is the more expensive route, but it gets here in maybe 2 weeks. balikbayan box is cheapest, but takes 2 months.

Got something to say?
