I'm ashamed of how long it's been since I've visited Sweet Maria's to buy my green beans for roasting. I've gotten lazy and have been buying my green coffee (of relatively unknown origin) from The Roasting Plant around the corner from my apartment for months.
Given all my talk about origin on this blog lately, I figured it was a bit hypocritical of me to keep buying and roasting "Ethiopian Yirgacheffe" that I knew nothing about -- despite repeated requests for additional information on origin.
So I visited the standard source for any serious home coffee roaster, Sweet Maria's. Not only is their selection amazing, but their site is packed full of information (although even they admit it's a little hard to navigate).
Here are the three coffees I purchased. The link for each brings you to a page with everything you would ever want to know about the coffee including the farm, processing method and cupping score.
El Salvador Pulp Natural Finca Mauritania
Brazil Moreninha Formosa Raisin Coffee MicroLot
Ethiopia Organic Dry-Process Birbissa
While I'm eager to try all of these, I'm particularly interested in the Brazil since it is tree dried, a process which is new to me.
I'll post more on each once I've roasted and tasted them.
