Economy? Flavor profile? Any guesses...
I was outbid. i turned away for a few, was outbid, and the auction closed. oh well. Perhaps one factor is all the great coffees people are already getting, small lots, vac packed, etc. Maybe COE seems redundant. I don't know ... I thought the lots were good although I feel I have better ones coming by my own means (I cupped them alongside the CoEs) . It's far from being the case, but it is interesting to posit the day when CoE has affected the broader market in an origin to the point that the coffees offered in a CoE are not that compelling. Guat Colo and Costa might be cases in point.
Hey, what happened to you? Bolivia? Peru?
