One origin for the rest of your life
best post

So there is the question. If you had to drink only one SO for the rest of your life where would it be? No cop out complicated responses or blends. No "Central America" or "Islands" or "Africa" or well this but maybe that. Specific country. Explanation about why certainly appreciated.

Honey badger 1k, Bunn LPG-2E, Technivorm, Cimbali Max Hybrid, Vibiemme Double Domo V3
Guats for me

They are so well rounded but enough variation to keep it interesting.

Kenya AA from Theta Ridge..easy to produce various flavors by changing the roast profile
hi guys, a bit out of the picture for me being in Australia but I do find myself loving most south American coffees, probably my favourite at the moment Is Guatemala Antigua. love the creamy body.

hmmmm, for me always African but let me pick just one as you asked for, good thread...

I'm with OGH's pick. With the variety of flavor profiles possible from the various regions in Kenya, I'm able to produce flavors close to the best I've cupped from Guatemala and El Salvador.

1/2 lb and 1 lb drum, Siemens Sirocco fluidbed, presspot, chemex, cajun biggin brewer from the backwoods of Louisiana
Kona Peaberry from . Roasted to City+. I am not a cupper; its just a wonderful coffee packed with flavor. Saturates the taste buds with wonderfulness. Yeah, theres my cupping notes. Grin

Guatemala Huehuetenango. It's what I drink everyday now. It's a very good all around coffee. I usually buy a 50lb bag of green beans which lasts me about a year.
I can't play this way either.
If I had to I would say Ethiopian. The flavor notes are so much more than anything else, so far. But Kenyan comes close.
And without the variety, I cannot appreciate the one. My cabinet full of variety says it all.

I will say that variety is the spice of life
But I change my preference with the seasons

However overall I go more for Colombian and Central American beans more than others

Costa Rica for me, when its good its really good. With Ethiopian close 2nd.

I'm steppin' out. I'm going Brazil. Makes the best Turkish, nice espresso.
I could exist with only Guatemala coffee, but I'm glad I don't have to. Variety is the spice of life!

Like Ken and KK allude without variety not able to answer.....Have lots of Yemenis, Ethiopeans, central americans in my stash.

Number one coffee country for me is Panama, specifically the Boquette region. My kayaking bud and his wife bought some property down there on side of a volcano and carries me coffee back from his neighbors that blows my mind.

That is down the road from the Peterson Farm that discovered Gesha growing on some of their back acres seems around 2004? That blowed everyone away and led to a craze and some upper 90's cupping scores.

No 2 is Guats. I now judge coffees by how well they taste as Americanos and out of pourover and Guats are consistently good.

To me got to have a certain amount of body packed with sweetness, and chocolates and that is why my taste buds prefer Panama and Guatemala compared to the more aromatic Kenyans and Ethiopians.
OK guys:

if there was, WAS, only one what would that coffee be for you?

Jon only asked a simple question that I had to go back and think about and have found mine and I will post later today.

we are all aware, painfully, that coffee batches come and go. I went back to get some from Sweet Maria today and it was gone with the coffee tides...

forget that you, all of us, want variety, what is the one coffee that you would die for?

only one, never get to drink another cup. so you give up coffee forever or pick one.

please simply list your coffee and why if you wish.


for me this was an interesting thread, having to go back over all the coffee I have had and what I remembered the most and why.

no game here just thoughts on what made that for you.

so be brave dudes...
pick a favorite all time coffee for you that if you had no other you would want.

if not do not add to the post with a coffee please do not post as that's not the point here; this is simply an exercise to extend yourself.

thank you.

My one origin would have to be a natural Ethiopian that I'm enjoying immensely nowadays.
Bad coffee prevails when good coffee roasters stand by and do nothing.
No no no...

HAHAHAHAAHA, excellent response, turtle!
For me it will would probably be guats, too, if I had to pick. but I'm with turtle.

Can I ask where you buy them? I am looking for 50 pound bags of HHT, but so far, haven't found anyone for that specific quantity.

So many beans; so little time....
