Who thinks it's all over this year after the Panama Bambito and the astonishing Geisha from La Esmeralda is wrong.
We still have two batches of the Dona Antonia to roast. This coffee was comparable to the Esmeralda and more a filter coffee then an espresso one. (Expect it as one of our filters of the week in November).
The upcoming Carmen estate is totally different though.
After competing very well all over the world, with a 4th place at the WBC as highlight, we were very curious to taste the new crop.
It's still a bit early to tell, but it looks like a winner, once again.
And a perfect base for the new Little Green Bag.

Soon more about the Carmen and Little Green Bag.
Also report from Jeff competing (again) for worlds best aeropress recipe in Milan, the 23rd.
And we follow the Dutch and Belgian Barista Championships. With a little bit of luck we have 4 Caffenation powered Barista's on stage. That would be an all time high.
oh yes, the photo was just 'for fun'.
