Another two weeks down, another slew of coffees that our expert tasters ran through the gauntlet. If you look at this breakdown side by side with the By The Numbers from two weeks ago, you’ll see that we tasted almost the exact same number of coffees. This kind of consistency helps our team find the best coffees around to put in your subscription box each month. You may also notice that Colombia edged out Ethiopia and Kenya at the top of the list for coffee samples by country. This is because coffee is a highly seasonal crop, just like any other fruit or vegetable, and the fresh Colombian coffee crops are making their way to roasters around the world. You can see how this wave of Colombians influenced the “most mentioned tasting notes” with chocolate, caramel, honey, and butterscotch - the rich, sweet characteristics we love about the country’s prized coffees.
