Had a nice cup of a Brazilian coffee from the Canaan Estate this morning.  It's a dry process coffee, nice acidity, chocolate notes and hints of nuts.  Makes a very nice espresso too, but today was a drip coffee day.

I've been tasting and sampling Brazilian Coffees all week...a Yellow Bourbon, a Yellow Catuai, and a Red Icatu.  Very good, all of them...my wife's favorite was the Yellow Catuai, and they all made terrific espressos and capps. 

Also, a Rwandan and a Natural process Ethiopian are in stock, and they are good as well...the natural process is super fruity.  For those of you who may not have tried a natural process coffee, you should.  They are complex and sweet and fruity. 

I've been pretty caffeinated all week from samples 8-)

That is so awesome! I decided on the Technivorm you recommended.
I'm glad you had a great Father's Day!

I received a Bunn HG Phase Brew for Father's Day.  This is one of only four auto drip brewers that are approved by the Specialty Coffee Association of America.  Two of them (Technivorm and Lance) are $300-400, the third (Bonavita) is $125-150.  The Bunn is only about $100 and my wife found it at Big Lots for $80.

So I got an approved brewer and a deal... I'm pleased. 

So for the last two days I've brewed an 8-cup pot of a coffee that I sourced directly from Guatemala.  I dealt directly with the farmer, and had it shipped here (luckily it was in Canada already at his secondary warehouse and roastery, so I didn't have to ship it from Guatemala).

Sierra Las Minas Farm, Microlot #75...65g of coffee, 40oz of water.

I have to adjust the roast though, it is slightly underdeveloped, but I think I know how to fix it.

I'm having French Vanilla flavored coffee this morning.

How are you doing Richard?

Yes it does depend on many variables. I agree there.
