Finca Bella Elizabeth, Guatemala from Coutume, Paris 

Escape rainy days with this sunny Parisian espresso from Coutume. Strawberry, apricot, dark chocolate. 

Fazenda Nossa Senhora de Fátima, Brazil (Espresso) from Green Cup Coffee, Passau


Nutty, chocolate powered, a little rusty, a little dusty. Very Italian style. Too dark for me. A night Espresso perfect as a digestive for a fatty feast in a little corner under the moon.

Ferrero Mon Cherie but in not-disgusting. Cherry, berry, chocolate. Sweetness and some toasted oak barrel aromas. I thing I got even more from it, when the bag was fresh but even after a month fully satisfying. 

Kamiro, Nyamagabe, Rwanda from Nero Scuro, San Giuseppe di Cassola

Excellent coffee, both as espresso and as a filter coffee. Very harmonic, easy going and pleasant. Soft peachy notes, very little but nice berry notes, some almond and just a great, gentle finish. 

El Rincon, Guatemala from Keen Coffee, Enkhuizen


Just a little smokey. Pretty smooth and softish. Little hints of apple and raspberry but over all more almondy/nutty without having the bitter-rusty characteristics of a darker roasted coffee. Nicer as it sounds here.  

Las Lajas, Costa Rica from Padre Coffee, Melbourne 

Rhubarb, peach. Handsome color, gentle touch. Very well balanced and with a juicy sweet finish. 

Kagumo Ini AB+, Kenya from Fjord, Berlin


Bitter-sweet symphony. Light but with power, fruity but with velocity and verve. I found it hard to deconstruct its flavors into seperate elements, but still liked its overall tones, scents and taste.

Gitega Hills, Rwanda from Mokxa, Lyon


Trés elegant. Honey, caramel, apricot, plum. Very gently blended into a smooth juice. 

Tegu AA, Nyeri, Kenya from Nømad, Barcelona 


There is a fancy flower in my cup. Just in bloom. Rose, peach blossom. A thin slice of nougat melting on my tongue. Sweet and elegant. 

Nano Challa, Ethiopia from Koppi, Helsingborg

Light shivers going down your spine, while this coffee strokes your back from the inside. Apricot-lemon pie with a cup of jasmin flavored tea. Voilà. Sweet, smooth, warming, pretty satisfying.
