and today i got a terrific note from jessica at batdorf, telling me about a new coffee coming my way: the colombia estrella del sur or southern star. this looks to be a whole new line of specialty colombians.
the first entrant is the palestrina, from huila (like oren's wonderful huila!) batdorf roastmaster scott merle notes a somewhat unusual feature of this coffee: its interesting mixed bean sizes.
he's calling this coffee a "15 full," because it includes all of the beans colombian size 15 and up, instead of having the beans sorted out to the "supremo" (size 17+) or "excelso" (size 15-17) standards, as is customary with colombian coffees.
as a fine colombian, you'd expect it to be crisp, citrus, and vanilla-y. and so scott promises!
can't wait 'til it comes -- but i'll enjoy my delicious gillies lemon-y yrg in the meantime!
poor me. thanks to don, jessica, and scott!
