Coffee goes seasonal in this week’s Reader. We certainly knew that coffee tastes better when beans are freshly roasted (an amazing week we spent in Addis Ababa taught us that much), and we knew we like some beans more than others, and we knew that it feels right when it’s Fair Trade, but the article woke us up (pun!) to the fact that different regions harvest and ship coffee beans at different times. Two places that the Reader thinks might help you keep up on the freshness are Metropolis Coffee and Intelligensia Coffee. That chart is incidental to freshness, but relevant to our boys and girls at the CBOT (even though it’s NYBOT).
