I have 13 samples on the way from Ninety Plus, all Geshas. I will figure out some cupping logistics among our cupping group, the Gopher Gulpers. The guys are all home roasters from around the state.

Once we work thru them, I am going to select one or two and offer them to the Gulpers and thru here, the Green Coffee Exchange thread. No pre-reservations at this time. Bear with me for the next month. I will offer them here when ready. Keep an eye out.

Feel free to reach out to me with questions thru my message contact right over there -->.

90+ has an interesting approach. For consistency, they roast and airmail the samples out.

Samples were roasted early Monday and landed on my porch on Wed. I have two sets; one complete set with our strongest cupper, Curly Johnson. We are going to do half on a Google meetup on Sunday (7 days off roast; perfect for a Gesha) and the remainder during the week. Once we compare notes and prices, we'll decide on coffee(s).

No pre-reservations at this time. Feel free to reach out to me with questions thru my message contact right over there -->.

We like Peru and are enjoying the Peru Fair Trade Organic Communidad Lucmabamba from Sweet Marias. We bought 20 lbs.

What I don't understand about Royal is their terminology - is the viscosity really Fudge Pudding and Cream ? The terminology makes it sound really hard to trust the tasting notes.
Finally got around to roasting/drinking this one. Fudge Pudding and cream is actually a fair descriptor. I think It's definitely a comfort cup, and will go over big time at work. It should also make a stellar cold brew.

Just my humble thoughts......YMMV.

I have 25 lbs of Aida Batlle Selection: Washed Kilimanjaro Discussion coming. Cost will be what I end up paying in CAD.

If you're local - Ottawa/Gatineau - then this may be of interest. I also have a one-day trip to Toronto coming up, but the timing may not work out if there are shipping delays.

PM if interested.

Sorry, in comparison to other Geshas and other highly priced coffees we have had, the value isn't there.
