Personally, I'm looking forward to the fresh African lots. As JNick916 asked, does anyone have any insider knowledge?
I am really enjoying both the Rwanda and Kenya. I got 2 pounds of each. I think I will take advantage of this sale and buy more of the Rwanda. The Kenya was amazing as a pour over but there were a fair number of shells and cracked beans. Easy to sort out and the pour over was a tad better than the Rwanda but the Rwanda was better as espresso. Rwanda was easier to roast too.

I ordered both roasted and green just to give myself a target and their roast of the Kenya had the same issues but again...so good as a pour over.

I also got the colombia decaf (superb) and the Nariño (good but not my cup of tea).

I noticed the coffee on Royal Crown Jewels but I've got plenty. Then I listened to this podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/b ... 1201025101.

Now I hope someone posts it on the greens exchange, get me some of that intentional and positive coffee.

Also new is the Colombia Pavon Finca Los Palomos:

This looks like the very tasty Colombia Urrao Finca Los Palomos from last year, but "bracing black tea" has been added to the flavor notes. Not my favorite in coffee, so ordered a restrained 2#, along with a shot in the dark with this Peru:

I saw that and Colombia Palomos and Burundi Kzizosa and decided trying them at 2# each was best. Too much green coffee on hand for more.

Picked up 5lbs of the Kenya along with 5lbs of the Colombia Honey Las Aguilas Gesha. I've never had a Colombian gesha before, so excited to get this in the roaster.

Last year's version of that Colombia HLA Gesha was really good, lots of sweetness and complex flavor notes, but I never did get any florals. May have been roasting it too darkly, favorite one was dropped right as FC was finishing. Hope this year's version is great.
