"Abnormal Offerings for Coffee Lovers."
The Skeleton Key Series is a new set of small batch single origin offerings from Brass Ring Coffee. These are coffees that we find to be special or "abnormal" in some way or another. Some of these coffees may come from special farms, use experimental processing techniques, unique typicas, or just have an extremely special flavor or character. You can always count on a Skeleton Key coffee to transport you to somewhere special when you close your eyes to take the the first sip.

A cool new Washed Processed coffee in the Zambia line. Science in action for this offering. Usually with Washed Processed coffee, the stripped seeds hit water tubs to get an open air fermentation process before drying, helps get rid of the fruit left on the seeds, makes the beans much more uniform in roasting, as well as improving the tastes a bit. In the case of this coffee, they use “special water”, basically spring water with a special proprietary mix of lactic acid and yeasts, nothing unnatural or gross for sure, but definitely bring this cup to the next level. Very complex cup, crisp and clean, a chunk higher rated than the usual washed processed lots.
The Zambia coffees in general are a milder classic African cup. Good brightness but not over the top like some Ethiopians or Kenyans, chocolaty in their undertones often containing some decent herbal (tea) and spice (pepper). Once you get into Honey and Naturals, it often adds a little to a lot of red fruit overtones. This specific offering being closer to a washed, does not really show much signs of a fruity side but in the Natural processed, they will be the dominate tone.
