I guess this means I will be tight lipped about where I am getting the 08 from . The 09 is still very good but not $40 a pound good, I would still pick it up at $20 though .

If you had to pick a bean or two from your stock this year that stands out in particular what would it be?

To give you a specific answer to your question...

My two favorite coffee growing countries are Guatamala and Brazil.

This begs the question of which region? What variety? and then which farm?

It is just great to be a home roaster and be able to narrow it down like that.

'Tis, 'tisn't it.

huffnpuff - scan the unclebeanz web site and pick whatever moves you. The uncle will love the coffee almost as much as he'll appreciate a thoughtful nephew.

There really is not a good answer to your question. What is the best can swing wildly from season to season, country to country and region to region. While many of us may favor certain coffees from Ethiopia this year, we could re-decide Puerto Rico has worlds best coffee next year. Best country is a moving target; best bean selection is like sliding down a razorblade.

And a guy who thinks Kona is to-die-for (that would be Opus) will say the USA grows the best. And maybe it does.

I'm still working my way through 8 pounds of different stuff but a couple that have stood out have been;

Brazilian Santos
Costa Rica Hard bean.

and of course, the Yirga Cheffe was stellar, if not the best so far.

That puts me all over the globe I guess.

I missed Uncle's 27 lot.

100% Pure Puerto Rican Mountain Grown.
El Salvador Santa Rita Natural.

Just got Guatemalan El Injerto that is cupping fantastic.
