Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia from Public Coffee Roasters, Hamburg

That used to be one of my first regularly bought specialty filter coffees two or three years ago. And since I was around their café and short of coffee (can you believe?) I got stocked at PCR again for the first time in ages.     Yirgacheffes are for me kinda the Bordeaux wines of coffee. […]

Skywalker (Espresso Blend) from Playground Coffee, Hamburg

Last grind of @playgroundcoffee's Skywalker. #lifeisacactuscoffeehelps #finishedbag Ein von @plastikstuhl gepostetes Foto am 21. Jan 2016 um 3:19 Uhr The currently most family compatible espresso which gives us a good compromise between ”I like it fruity!“ and ”weeeeeeh, not to sour please!“: Skywalker from Playground Coffee (65% Brazil / 35% Guatemala).

La Dulce Memoria, Huehuetenago, Guatemala (Espresso) from Five Elephant, Berlin

Espresso was my gateway drug into the coffee world. And the more I get into coffee the harder I find it to enjoy mediocre espresso. It’s really hard to make. And while I still enjoy even dark roasted Italian style espressi as a digestive, I get much more picky, when I’m doin’ espresso at home. […]

Altos. Costa Rica from La Cabra, Aarhus

Natural processed coffees can be a little extreme. And it can be a matter of taste, if you like those or not. In a funny Facebook post, Svenja compared a certain natural to stinky cheese. And also linked a good intro text on fermentation of coffee beans.     My latest finished coffee bag/box was another […]

Ecuador from quijote Kaffee, Hamburg

   This 500g of coffee vanished in the blink of an eye. Excellerated with the help of some coffee thirsty colleagues last weekend. Bought in a moment of  imminent scarcity this was supposed to bypass me to a chance to get new supply else where. But it served much better.  It’s not a shiny fruit […]

Hurray to the magnificent #thirdwavewichteln! Farewell, gorgeous Limoncillo from Coffee Proficiency, Krakow.

#thirdwavewichteln has been a blast again. I was participating for the third time and am as happy as could be about the whole experience and community behind the project. I fall in love with Yirgacheffes, when I got Kansas roasted coffee from Laura in 2013/14. I had a marvelous private coffee swap with Marlous after […]

Coffee.Compass

Just need to repost this Coffee-Compass from Matt Perger’s Barista Hustle to bookmark and remember. A great way for tuning your grind size and extraction times on your coffees regardless of the brewing method.

El Salvador from Cafelix, Jerusalem

El Salvador is not only a leading plastic chair photography location, it also produces some pretty sweet coffees. Enjoyed this Tel Aviv Jerusalem roasted one with that uniquely illustrated bag quiet a lot. Served well during #milehighaeropressclub as well as back home. Edit: Thanks to Cafelix/Purple Squares amazingly responsive team I found out: it was […]

Just Another Coffee Blog

Oh. Well. 2015 hasn’t been a great blogging year for me. But it’s been a heck of a coffee year. A lot of delicious coffees brewed with love in nice cafés, at home, outdoors and elsewhere passed my lips. Vanished. Unforgotten. But also undocumented. While my running log and cake log raise claim to completeness, […]
