Since a few of us now have subscriptions, I thought it might be worth starting a thread where we can compare notes.

 

Aptly, this month's package came just as I was finishing the local blend I bought to tide me over after finishing the second of last month's.

 

Boy, is it different. When you get used to drinking light roasts, heavier roasts -- even medium -- can seem cloying and overdone.

 

I started with this month's primary offering, the Karogoto from Kenya. Their cupping notes say, "Intense floral & black currants". That seems right to me. It's just remarkable how much more nuanced this is than my stopgap.

I'm finding this month's second bag -- Bourboncillo from the Caballero family in the Honduras -- surprisingly deep for a light Nordic roast. That's not a bad thing! Very complex as well.

 

This is from lower down the mountain than this producer's Geisha -- which I would now dearly love to try.

Once again my stopgap coffee -- this month, Toby's Rwanda, an objectively fine, fruity single-origin, just the kind of thing I previously liked -- comes across as cloying after weeks of lightly roasted coffee from Wendelboe.
