and yesterday what arrived but some awesome beans from oren? a nice blue-berry scented longberry harrar, and his colombia star, both roasted just 2 days ago.
the colombia was chosen for oren by long-time bccy pal genevieve felix on her buying trip to that country earlier this year. she dealt directly with the farmers and the mills herself.
i brewed up the full-city harrar this morning in the cafetiére, but didn't succeed in getting the blue outta the aroma and into the cup.
this is usually a grind issue, so i'll work on that. . .in the meantime, the colombia in the chemex first thing tomorrow!
thank you, oren!
