Organic Sulawesi Rantekarua Estate
Well, in our family we’ve made it to the official start of summer vacation. In the last week Jack’s team has played three baseball games (that’s him pitching in the header photo), we’ve had a birthday party for him, we had a successful yard sale, it was my birthday, Caroline has practiced for her cello recital and her ballet recital, and we have had several friends over. Whew. I think we are all ready for a less scheduled week. I’m sure all the teachers, parents and students feel the same way. I know that by the end of the break I’m ready for routine again, but tonight I’m looking forward to summer.
For my birthday I got to attend my son’s last Little League game of the regular season. Trace even told me he’d buy me anything I wanted at the snack shack–what an offer! We actually celebrated with a date the next day. Archie even made it to watch, and he was fascinated by all the movement under the lights. Holding my nephew and watching my son play was a great way to spend my birthday.
This week we have another new coffee for you: an Organic Sulawesi from the Rantekarua Estate. This estate is located above 5000′ elevation on the slopes of Mount Karua, in the Tana Toraja region of the southern part of Sulawesi. Sulawesi (formerly Celebes) looks rather like a four fingered hand. This coffee comes from the southwest, a highly volcanic region, and the nearest major city is four hours away.
That means that this coffee makes quite a trip to end up in your cup. Unlike many other Indonesian coffees, this Organic Sulawesi is fully washed and sun dried on raised beds. It has a clean sweet flavor, and tastes of light molasses and meyer lemon, with vanilla tones as you sip. It’s delicious, and I’m looking forward to drinking it all week.
You can try a cup on us this week with the code summer fun*. There are so many great things to do around this area when the weather is nice. I hope you all have plans to enjoy this summer. A big thanks to my kids’ teachers, who have led them so well this year. I appreciate you. May you all drink good coffee while enjoying your summer. Cheers!
