China Comac Estate
This very rare coffee launched just this week at the Roastery, and is very limited in supply and exclusive to the Roastery. With the Specialty Coffee Association expo in Seattle this upcoming weekend (4/20 - 4/22/18), Starbucks is showcasing ultra rare and exclusive coffees at its Roastery in Seattle, Washington.
The China Comac Estate was (or is?) available in China, at the Starbucks Roastery in Shanghai. The Roastery in Seattle got about one week's worth of the coffee beans - only a handful of bags of green coffee were flown over to the Seattle Roastery. Coffee from China is usually a wash-processed coffee, but this Comac Estate coffee is semi-washed. The barista who helped me at the Roastery said that Ann Traumann (lead Starbucks coffee buys) came into the Roastery and commented to him that it's an interesting comparison to do a blind taste test of China Comac with Sumatra - the flavor notes have some similarity, and many people wouldn't know which is which.
The two showcased coffees, exclusive to the Roastery in celebration of the SCA expo in Seattle, are the China Comac Estate and the Sun Dried Bolivia Kusillo Java.
I hope you get to try this!
