The simplest answer is yes.
Part of what we try to do is offer consistency, plus rock star coffees too, that will never be seen again.
Some coffees have the full pedigree of the farm etc. Others are CP Select for instance. CP select (Coffee Project) requires us to keep cupping coffees from different sources to stay in the same place in the cup. Its just WAY the heck simpler to re-brand those than try to manage endlessly changing info.
Bottom line on that is the more things change the more they stay the same.
Others would be Malabar Gold, La Minita, Felucca Blend that we’ve had around forever, but are obviously not from 1997. But similarly held to QC standards and continuity.
Similar thing with Decafs. Not the same crops but importers’ QC and cupping on our end keeps things in a bracket of expectation, that hopefully never drifts too far out of line.
And ALL the coffees roll over and over and over. Sometime we will get a gap between past crop and new crop where a coffee disappears for a while. OR we’ll start to blow out beans as Uncertain Blend when needed to manage inventory flow to meet with new crop.
And, some regions like Sumatra have an endless flow of imports, growing and picking, while others like Colombia have stronger cycles of crop and fly crop.
It’s a whole thing. Deadly dry stuff. Inventory management. But same as managing any other yearly crop.
So… yes, some of the Rock Stars get reviews but then disappear forever. Some of the long time branded standards get reviews but which we’ve been monitoring for a decade or so. Others come and go before anyone jumps in to write anything. Doesn’t mean they aren’t great, they just haven’t had as much exposure over time.
