Topic: Chinese Coffee??? (4 msgs / 106 lines)
1) From: Bob Holland
Just opened an order for some computer stuff from New Egg and included in
the box was a packet of coffee from China!
Having been a home roaster and SM customer for 15 yrs this was a real
surprise.  It's called HOGOOD Coffee, 100% Arabica  and comes from the
Yunnan province in China. I kinda hate to think how this is all processed.
Maybe Starbucks is behind it!
I was  wondering if Tom had ever encountered Chinese coffee in any of his
cupping adventures?

Questions about coffee from China seem to pop up on the list about once eve=
ry six months or so.  Coffee from China is generally of awful quality, he=
nce why you've never seen Tom offer it.
Sprudge just ran an blurb about Hogood coffee a couple days ago:http://s=prudge.com/slightly-bitter-low-acerbity.html

Bryan pretty much says it. You would hear about it a lot more if it 
actually tasted good. Even with decent processing it is surprisingly 
dull. Thai, Vietnam etc arabicas suffer the same issues. Theres a 
company Doi Chang trying to push themselves but the samples have 
suffered the same issues. Dull at best, but most often much much 
worse due to poor processing. Compare that to a place that suffers 
poor processing often, but when done right can be 88 points, or much, 
much higher. I am thinking of Papua New Guinea as a great example of 
this.
