Not too long ago I purchased a 5 lb bag of Zambian green beans. I
hadn't read much about Zambian coffee but thought I would give it a try.
I like it! I am partial to East African coffees; probably because I
spend two years in Tanzania in the mid 1960's.
Anyone else tried Zambian coffee. Opinions?

I've variously sampled Africans from some of these, what I have
available locally. I've had to go to Sumatra Mandheling Balige
Estate, though, to get (something of) "wild and funky" niche flavors
outside the traditional aromas -- outside, shall we say, of a
characteristic from gourmet SO coffees as a whole. (Of course,
gourmet would have to be a conditional predicate at prices I'm
paying). An association beyond blended Mocha-Java from Red Sea and
East Indies for a monsoon-stored, southern India example, (
http://www.ccmcoffee.com/index.php?cPath=21 ), albeit a latter example
apparently lacking in its stores at present. Unless reason is I
haven't a discrete enough palate to make subtler distinctions across
what I've been given to sample. Also, I suspect these people keep
different stock for different purposes. When ordering 5# increments
of Sumatra Mandheling there was a marked difference in bean appearance
to my last 25# order -- from 5# selections, a "fancier" bean at a
lesser quantity: being a brighter, greener, and possibly drier by
appearances, to 25# quantities (though thankfully, at a taste to me,
the 25# order is no less enjoyable).
