Honduran SHG Marcala EP
Rated 88 on a scale of 100 by Coffee Review, the world's leading Coffee buying guide.
Aroma: 8 Acidity: 8 Body: 7 Flavor: 8 Aftertaste: 7
Roast (Agtron): Medium-Dark (42/53)
Origin: Marcala growing region, La Paz Department, Honduras.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price.
Blind Assessment: The sweet-toned aroma suggests butter, toast, raisiny fruit. In the cup, deep, roast-muted acidity, medium body, soft mouth feel and straightforward flavors of molasses and nut-toned chocolate with a continued hint of dried fruit. A mild bittersweet chocolate character fades quickly in the finish.
Who should drink it: An easy drinking, medium-dark-roasted coffee with impressive social and
environmental credentials.

Java Estate Jampit A/WP-1X
Rated 90 on a scale of 100 by Coffee Review, the world's leading Coffee buying guide.
AROMA: 8 ACIDITY: 8 BODY: 8 FLAVOR: 8
AFTERTASTE: 8
AGTRON: 56/79
Roast: Medium-Light
All the big estates on Java are owned and operated by the Indonesian government. The processing on Java is different from most of the other Indonesian islands in that it is fully washed. This gives the coffee a cleaner, balanced profile, although it still has the trademark Indo body. On Java, grade and bean size are designated by letters and numbers. The coffee we buy is the highest possible, “A-WP/1X.” That is, A grade, washed process, 1X size (equivalent to 17-19 screen).
Blind Assessment: A deceptively complex cup. Flavor and aroma combine a subdued fruit with a sweet, toasty nuttiness, complicated by hints of butter, aromatic wood and chocolate. Roundly balanced acidity; soft, lightly syrupy mouth feel. Fruit-toned chocolate dominates in the short finish, fading to a simple sweetness in the long.

Roasting your own (continued)
under $30. This will do the job almost as well as the coffee roaster itself. The picture that you see here on the right is the West Bend Poppery II hot air corn popper. I purchased one on Amazon.com for $15. West Bend nolonger makes this popper, so you'll need to buy it used somewhere, like Ebay.
Then you will need a coffee grinder to reduce the beans to a coarse grind for the brewing. Never grind more than what you are going to use that day. Also, never roast more than what you are going to use in the next three to five days. You can literally smell the loss of aroma in the beans the longer you wait to use them.

Preparing the perfect cup
If you are using the drip coffee brewing method, use 2.5 to 3 tablespoons of medium ground coffee per 8 ounce cup. As far as brewing the perfect cup, I would recommend you to purchase a French Press coffee maker.

The main reason why the French press is considered superior to drip brewing is that the water is in contact with all of the beans an equal amount of time. It also filters less of the fines (fine coffee grounds similar to powder) which make for a more full flavored drink.
Also, try to use filtered water, if at all possible.

The French Press consists of a glass container mounted in a metallic frame with a wire mesh plunger, as shown in the picture on the right. You insert the bean grounds (always a coarse grind, about 3-1/3 measuring spoons) into the container, and then you pour a little hot water (just shy of the boiling point), just enough to wet the grounds first, and then five seconds later, the rest of the water. Proceed then to stir the mixture. Let it rest for 4 minutes, and voilà, you will begin to enjoy the greatest cup of coffee you've ever had in your life!
