For those that love fruit bomb natural Ethiopian...

They just posted limited availability today on IG. I ordered 5#...and given what I've tasted from Keith & Jen at Northbound Coffee Roasters (Shasta, CA) before for all things fruit bomb natural Ethiopians it should be a winner...and a relative bargain.

You've pretty much described my ideal coffee. I grabbed some along with the Peruvian SO they have right now. Will report back.

Just ordered two pounds of the Ethiopian and two pounds of the seasonal espresso. Hopefully the Ethiopian is good as espresso. Free shipping is nice, too. Thanks for the heads up!

Yes, I'll post up once I get it and allow it to get at least 10-days rest.

Related: Last spring we stopped by Northbound; saw their facility and chatted with Keith and of course sampled some espresso while visiting :) . Funny story: A while back Keith & Jen had another "fruit bomb" Ethiopian natural and it sold through but they had more than a few of their customers complain about "spoiled tasting beans", "funkiness" and more negative comments. At the end of the day the customers were not familiar with the fruitiness of the natural process beans and didn't know what they had :lol:

What some call fruit bomb, others consider ferment defect. I fall on the fruit bomb side, generally
