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.

(A couple of days before purchase.)

Not bad.

 

In the interest of science, I just purchased a 6-month subscription.

 

I'm not as much of a fan of super, super light roasts, but am looking forward to trying and comparing this with some of the other coffees I regularly grind and brew.

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.

You want to talk about "bad" coffee, go to Daly Pie up the street from my apartment (where I've been going as I await my next Wendelboe package -- which better come fucking soon).
