Has anyone tried the Guatemala COE Palaencia El Tambor Pacamara from Burman's yet? I have some on order but it won't get here for a bit. Also interested in hearing about Burman's other Guatemala auction coffees.

Mary, short answer No - but I'm on a bit of a hiatus from green coffee purchases. As you read on the other thread, my hiatus pushed me to finally try the Burman's Guatemala COE #5 that was in my freezer for a couple of years. I would be tempted by all of their auction Guatemalan offerings. I applaud them for getting them and allowing home roasters to sample the best beans. I can say that one farm I have tried a "standard" washed process several times is Finca Rosma. Their natural process which I have never seen before is one of Burman's offerings. Sweet Maria offers Rosma washed almost every year and its been a classic Huehuetenango delicious comfort coffee and marvelous espresso. That's all I can offer. ENJOY!

Any recommendations from SM for fruity coffee including anaerobic?

While I am trying to buy from vendors supporting Artisan Plus, I did buy 20lbs of this Costa Rica from SM because I have never seen them give a coffee that high of score for body which means this should be a great blender as well as a SO espresso.

Please help Artisan if you buy from Sweet Marias - After you order you will get an email and it will have this email - info@sweetmarias.com - please drop them a note and ask them to join the Artisan Plus collaboration and add links on their green pages.

I'm buying that CR on the description and body score alone. Probably doesn't even need to be blended! But I imagine it would pair well with a nice spicy forest floor Indonesian to round it out. Thanks for the heads up.

Thank you for the recommendation. I remember loving the past Finca Rosma washed coffee from SM...but have missed out on the last years. It would be interesting to see how their auction entry compares to their more 'standard' coffees.

I understand taking a hiatus from purchasing greens. Given my caffeine consumption limit I undergo periodic self imposed bans on coffee buying. At the moment my green stash is again reaching full capacity...so I will probably be on another hiatus soon. If you wish to try Burman's Guatemala COE Maragogype or Pacamara offerings feel free to hit me up. My husband is not fond of the wonderful citric type notes found in those coffees...so I am drinking those solo and would be happy to send some your way.

Thank you so much for that kind offer that is in keeping with the giving and sharing culture of this wonderful website. Enjoy your coffee from this special farm in Guatemala. I have lots to sample over the next several months. Good news for reducing my coffee stash as I've begun coffee subscriptions for two local family members. They seem to love what I give them and they can't beat the price :D . They will soon reduce my stash so I can spend freely on new 2022-2023 harvests.

Ally Open has started to offer Green Coffee Bundles. They contain 0.5kg of green coffee from 3 different regions for a total of 1.5kg of green coffee for each bundle. I think they're limited to December only.

There is an anaerobic processing bundle, a community lot bundle, mystery box bundle, and a single producer lot bundle. I got the anaerobic processing bundle and the coffees were really good. Definitely in my top 5 of anaerobic green coffees. I was pretty excited when they first offered this because a lot of the roasters that I followed early on in my coffee journey would source their coffee from Ally Coffee.The Ethiopian natural is packed ton of aromatics and flavor. It's a little funky but there is a lot of sweetness to it.

I love the idea of familial coffee subscriptions as a means of reducing one's stash.

My sister used to be a reliable partner in keeping my coffee stash in check. Unfortunately she has had to reduce her caffeine in intake over the last two years - now only consuming coffee twice a week. My mom while never reliable used to take some..but now mostly dirnks tea. Now only my husband remains my sole relaible coffee disposal...er consumer ;) Having exhausted family connections maybe I should branch out to friends instead...

Good luck...hope you are soon in a position to try some new coffees.

How did they work out for you? I'm looking for some nice green for the holidays and juggling these geishas.
