I just finished up a fun project with Has Bean Coffee out of England that compared three different varietals from the same farm in Nicaragua—Finca Limoncillo.
The guys from Has Bean needed a drawing that outlined some of the differences between the three varietals, tasting notes, and the processing methods used for each. It was a lot of fun to work with Dale and Steve, read their descriptions of the coffees (bubble gum, strawberry milkshakes, toffee apple) and put them down on paper. From my understanding, they’ll use this drawing in a presentation, and will have the ability to zoom in and out of and around the drawing. Should be pretty cool.
I knew that different varietals—even from the same farm—had different characteristics, but actually tasting the coffees completely opened my eyes. Each varietal is extremely unique and different from the other. If you ever get the opportunity to purchase varietals from the same farm, I’d really encourage it. Thanks again to Has Bean for the opportunity!
