    Uncle Beanz' Ethiopian Yrgacheffe Gedio Lot. . . .

    Well, I had this coffee ready to drink with 3:45 left to go in the game between my Toy Cows and the Arizona Cardinals. How ridiculous, at least rename the team Coral Snakes or Gila Monsters if you move them to Arizona. Upon opening the bag, I was struck by the rustic, irregular nature and...

    Uncle Beanz Colombian Spectacled Bear. . . .

    Maybe the best coffee I've ever had. Whether fresh ground laying in the French Press, brewing in the press, sipped slowly while hot, or even long after it's become room temperature, there is simply nothing wrong with this coffee. There are no weak points. The pungent aroma in the carafe post...

    Uncle Beanz Santa Rita Natural. . . .

    A sharp aroma after grinding, rich and very pungent, aromas which separate only in to what I can best describe as unsweetened milk chocolate, habanero salsa and a hint of steamed broccoli. It's pretty much the same drinking it, very pungent, and a flavor profile which smacks of steak with mole...

    Uncle Beanz Puerto Rican Mountain Grown. . . .

    A rich, powerful aroma booms from the bottom of the French Press after grinding, mostly unsweetened dark chocolate with a hint of milk chocolate. While brewing in the French Press, it takes on the smell of sweetened dark chocolate covered nuts. On the palate, while hot, you are greeted by rich...

    Uncle Beanz Media Luna. . . .

    I'm winding down my consumption of the five coffees I recently purchased from Uncle Beanz. That will certainly not be my last order. I'm finished plowing through my 12 oz. bag of this wonderful blend, a 50-50 blend, according to the invoice. Now, of course, I'm not about to ask or speculate as...

    Uncle Beanz Sidamo Watadara. . . .

    Another Ethiopian coffee, but quite unlike many others, dark roasted, with oil on the beans, very uniform in size and shape, what looks to be a very painstaking selection of beans. When I finally opened up the bag on this one over the weekend, prior to grinding the beans, I instantly detected a...

    Uncle Beanz Ethiopian Worka. . . .

    A quiet and thoughtful "wow" on this one. Where do I begin? There is something about Ethiopian coffees, a common thread if you will, that in my experience, tends toward "earthy," "winey" and "lemony." Certainly not all Ethiopian coffees will have that entire flavor profile, but a good and...

    Uncle Beanz 2008 Cup Of Excellence: . . .

    "San Pablo." It was time to finally choose one of the four remaining bags of Uncle Beanz coffee in the freezer. I chose this one yesterday, and lined up the jars with a pots worth in each one. I noted that the roast was a relatively light one compared to what so many Americans have become used...

    Uncle Beanz Jayuya Peaberry. . . .

    Uncle Beanz "Taina" coffee

    I received a sample of Uncle Beanz "Tania" beans. My wife and I enjoyed the aroma while grinding the beans and while the coffee was brewing. The coffee was a full bodied coffee with hints of a carmel and both of us enjoyed it to the last drop. The first cup I enjoyed by itself and the second...
