Steve's latest Bolivians

Postby sicinius » Sun Jan 26, 2014 1:48 pm

In a way, not having a steady supply of Machacamarca has been a good thing as I've experimented with all sorts of alternatives and it's enabled me to appreciate what I really like in a coffee.

Unfortunately, it turns out that what I like most is Machacamarca. I still have a kilo or so and roasted half a pound after thinking that I might even prefer El Salvador Finca Argentina Pulped Natural 2012.

Nope. BM still rules. Similar but BM much more subtle with its restrained half caramel, half wheaty sweetness and long, long finish. More rewarding.

What are the new Bolivians like and is there anything recent and hopeful on the BM front?

I wish I could tell you that I have found something as good. There are lots of good coffees around but I always compare them unfavourably to Machacamarca. :cry: I have too much green coffee already so I have not tried the new Bolivians yet.
