I have grabbed the selection for May. TomC will be covering June.
I selected an organic micro-lot from Bolivia. Coffees from Bolivia are unheralded. Some of my favorite cups over the years have been micro-lots from Invalsa, Nelson Valverde. I have distributed Nelson's micro-lots and have never had a bad sample. Don't worry about his scoring -- he scribes "85+" on all his micro-lots and they have always been 87.5/89.0 coffees on my palate.
I have chosen a micro-lot from Jacinto Titirico. Notes on the cup are: "Cinnamon aroma. Nice, sweet, light fruity orange flavor, full body with an elegant character and a floral aftertaste, good acidity, flavors of chocolate and papaya." (http://invalsacoffee.com/collections/mi...j-titirico
). I bought 66 lbs this evening.
You may order:
* directly from Invalsa, as little as one pound at $7.73/lb or
* 2.5 lbs, from me at cost ($5.00/lb), plus $1.50 for bag/supplies. I would ship flat rate envelope, $5.70, adding PayPal fees, for a total of $20.60. PM me if interested by May 10th.
* as many pounds as you wish, 5 lbs or more, from me at cost ($5.00/lb) plus $.50/pound, PayPal fees, and flat rate box/insurance. PM me if interested by May 10th.
If you order from directly from Invalsa, I encourage you to try several micro-lots. They are worth it.
