I’ve ordered some South American beans to try from Columbia, Brazil, and Peru. It’s supposed to be pretty mellow overall, and I’m looking forward to trying them all. I also ordered some coffee from Latin America (Costa Rica) to try when I’m done with South America.
If I put the whole coffee beans in the original packaging right into the freezer, it will last for years. Then I can take my time and take advantage of free shipping for these larger orders.
I was also reading about the different stages of coffee roasting. I’m trying different regions of coffee, so it makes sense to not get the heavily roasted beans. I need to get City Roasts whenever I can, so the nuances shine through. Just say no to French Roasts!
