We've brought quite a few new coffees into our lineup this month, but for the transition to fall, we're bringing one more, and wrapping up the last roast of one of our favorites. This week will be our last with Doña Lucinda, but also the first with our second AProCafé micro-lot, Don Manuel. Manuel Tzic Saso lives a bit higher up above the town of San Juan la Laguna than Doña Lucinda, and also washes and dries his coffee on his own farm. This is another really nice coffee, with graham cracker sweetness, a bit of orange zest, and subtle dried fruit flavors.
For this one week overlap, seize the opportunity to get out to one of the cafes and try both coffees. We're pretty proud of these coffees, and it's been a promising start to our relationship with AProCafé. We're heading down to Guatemala in a few weeks to meet with the cooperative, help build a few more great micro-lots for the 2015-2016 harvest, and see where and how Huckleberry can lend a helping hand to improve both quality of coffee and quality of life for AProCafé's farmers in the months and years ahead.
Beyond the three new coffees we've released this month, that trip, and some still-to-be-finalized projects with AProCafé, there are a few more things to look forward to this season. First, as we transition away from the Atitlán el Grano main lot in early October, we'll begin roasting a new Honduran coffee grown by Eriban Mendoza. And soon after that, we'll start the transition to Southern Hemisphere coffees.
The biggest change this fall will come at the end of October. Come late October we'll be adding one more roast day each week, and making some subtle changes to other aspects of our production and processes.
