Sweet Maria's Coffee Pairings

If you enjoy higher-end cups of coffee, check out the Sweet Maria's Roasted Coffee Pairings. The roastmaster selects two coffees to specifically show some difference in style, processing or flavor, etc. At $30 (delivered) for 2lbs of coffee, the price is pretty fair for the market.

This morning I enjoyed a few cups each of Ethiopian and Indonesian lots. They are detailed in the roastmaster's blog post, Fruity or Fruited? Both coffees exhibit clear fruity notes, though the Indonesian is more tropical and bright/acidic, while the Ethiopian is more muted and hints at fermented grapes. But don't take my word for it—get in on their next roasting!
