Just a few more days left in 2014! It's been a great, exciting year for us at Huckleberry, and we're looking forward to an even better 2015 with all of you - Happy New Year!
Next week we're going to have three awesome new single origins for you guys: Rwanda Kigeyo, Sulawesi Tana Toraja, and Colombia Inza.
Kigeyo is one of the COOPAC cooperative's washing stations on the shores of Lake Kivu in Western Rwanda, and this coffee is grown by various small farmers at high altitudes of 1800-2000 meters. Zippy cranberry and orange brightness, rounded out with maple walnut, dried mango, and raisin sweetness.
Tana Toraja comes to us from the island of Sulawesi, in Indonesia. It can be common to expect less from Indonesian coffees, but Tana Toraja is one of those special coffees that has encouraged us. The producers of Tana Toraja use better varieties than most growers in Indonesia, and follow a more typical Latin American washed process, rather than the wet hull process prominent in the region. As a result, this coffee is cleaner than any Indonesian coffee we've tasted, with mouth-coating body and comforting flavors of chocolate, baking spice, and red apple.
