I really need to source some more Java Kalistat Estate green.
Can anyone tell me where to find it. Could I email some importers like MCM or Mercanta? Happy to buy a sack if necessary... But ALS pretty sure others on here would happily take part in an acquisition  :)


Can any of you sponsors help?

Hi Marc,
I don't use that bean but you should know that supply of Sumatrans (and Java) remain quite tight for at least another 3+ months, e.g. demand still exceeds supply.

The closest I have is a Java FairTrade Organic Ujangjaya (ASKOGO) which is a very nice bean.

Next week I am getting one of the sweetest and cleanest Sumatran's tasted in years - it's simply called RFA Mandheling GR1

My suggestion is to also look at Kuda Mas - a stunning bean in every respect and in my humble, personal opinion superior to the Kalistat - but it all comes down to how and what you are using the bean for.

Regards,
Jeff

The Kuda Mas was my first SO and the bean that got me serious about coffee.

I haven't actually had this one since my popcorn popper days.  Now I'll have to get some to retry.  :laugh:

Fortunately a mate of mine at work is short on greens so another Bean Green order is now a necessity!!  ^-^
