Topic: Ethiopian DPs (11 msgs / 225 lines)
1) From: sci
I'm beginning to wonder: will there ever be any Ethiopian DPs again. I
haven't seen one in like forever. As soon as a decent one comes along, I'm
clicking the order button. :-)

well, there have been half dozen of Ethiopia DPs, but I truly miss 
the Ethiopia DP Haile Selassie. Nothing came through in 2011--2012, so i guess there weren't anything decent, maybe Tom can comment on that if he is so inclined.
Bring it back please when there is something good from this farm.

There will be Ethiopia DPs this year, they are on the way.  But in the
meantime, the Yirg and Sidama we have on the list are incredible.

Same here - until now.
Ethiopia Grade 1 Chelelektu Yirga Cheffe looked pretty good.
40# order was an excellent choice.
The old (WP) Yirg is back.

We have a split shipment with 2 very promising lots coming now. I 
dont have an ETA yet, but will check again. I cupped a lot this year 
and its been a struggle to find something really spectacular. But the 
2 lots coming, one from Shakiso and one from Kochere area, promise to 
be great. With a natural, you never know exactly until it arrives 
though.

Speaking of DPs though not Ethiopia but Ethiopia Heirloom cultivar Geisha
grown in Panama, last week cupped a Best of Panama auction sample DP Geisha
from Mama Cata that blew my mind. Best I can describe is a cross between
that stellar crystalline '07 IMV and a top tier washed Geisha. Like fresh
strawberries on lemon zest pound cake with wonderful balance, medium body
and mouth feel and a touch of jasmine, bergamot and honeysuckle in the
finish. I WANTED that Lot bad! And bid an insane (for me) $60/LB before
dropping out. That Lot "only" went for $80.25/LB, top BoP Lot went for over
$93.
There are indeed some extremely good natural processed coffees coming in and
not just from Ethiopia. And some of them are Outrageously expensive! I too
am waiting on a DP Yirg' to come in, but it's not at those ridiculous
auction prices :)

Yep. I love traditional Yirg coffee, but think the DP Yirg is a wonderful
twist on things.
cheers,
Scott
