and happy holidays to all from bccy. i've spent mine drinking oren's fantastic kona from greenwell farms.
oren gets a special selection from them that's quite noteworthy. seriously — you would expect fine coffee from a farm that's been winning awards since 1873.
many coffee lovers will roll their eyes at the mention of kona, arguing it's overpriced, it's not rare, quality, etc. etc. but a lovely kona is a rare product — nothing fills your house with floral fragrance like a freshly ground high quality kona.
and at christmas it's pleasant to be able to feel a connection to the coffee farmer on a traditional american family farm.
today i'm spending with oren's yemen, which i've discussed before. o's yemen is a fascinating, complex but clean coffee.
it's a great switch from andrew's enchanting and oh-so-lightly blue sidamo. but how that blue does ecco!
