Orange You Glad Vol 2...Tanzania!

11.00

Dig this: The first in a series of beautifully lively and, perhaps, citrusy coffees from Kenya and elsewhere around East Africa’s “Lake Region.” Here at BTC, we are careful not claim that coffees from specific regions have aromatic boundaries. And yet, that being said, we definitely get stoked for the arrival of coffees from Kenya, Tanzania, and Burundi because they tend to have such lively and well-defined aromatic characteristics. And while they don’t always fall into this realm, many bring to mind citrus: Candied meyer lemon, grapefruit zest, sweet and juicy tangerine.

What’s in a name? There have been times that we’ve caught some flack (especially on the “west coast”) for saying “orange” the correct way, “arrr-an-g.” What do you mean that’s not the right way? Keep in mind that in most Romance Languages, orange is begins “ar.” To boot, the word for “orange” in most languages stem from Dravidian languages, who too feature this “ar” sound.

But, perhaps more importantly, if this wasn’t the correct way to pronounce orange, we ask yeee, how would that classic knock knock joke of yore make any sense? You’re right, it wouldn’t. It wouldn’t even be funny. It would be a regular concept or question in a dadaist world. And you know what, even though that sounds really cool, a lot of you aren’t interested in dadaism. And so, it must be the case that Philadelphia pronounces this word as it was intended to be pronounced.

Okay, now that we’ve settled that, let’s talk about the coffee you’ll be falling in love with very soon. Orange You Glad Vol 2 consists of Bourbon and Kent varieties, grade AA, from the Iyenga AMCOS Washing Station in Mbozi, approximately 7 miles from the Zambia border. It’s harvested in late summer through fall, fermented for 38-48 hours, and dried for approximately 2 weeks on raised drying bed screens. What’s left, when all of this is said and done? You have in front of you a lovely coffee that boasts flavors of lemon curd, strawberry bubblegum, and melon.

So why are you even still reading this? Buy this coffee!
