Rianjagi AA, Kenya from Machhörndl, Nürnberg

My Machhörndl shopping haul got some quiet nice results. This washed Kenyan coffee has been the least favorite of the four bags I got, however still a really nice catch. Compared to the others I perceived this as rather earthy and smokey.

Sasaba, Oromia, Ethiopia from Machhörndl, Nürnberg

BAM! This coffee is a bomb! A bomb of fruit and sweetness. A juicy blueberry goodness that is maybe not as honey sweet as some Yirgacheffe’s I had recently but not in there shadow at all. Maybe to distinguish to be an everyday coffee. But while I want coffee every day and all day long, […]

Blend 2.4 (Espresso) by Black Delight, Hamburg

   I don’t want any darker roasted beans in my grinder. This blend is definitely on the edge of the color scale. It’s not as dark as Italian roasts and still got a big of fruity flavor and acidity. This blend did a good job for my weekly latte and an occasional espresso ones ore […]

Kamajumba, Rwanda from 24grad Kaffeerösterei, Hannover

 While I just missed the opportunity to accompany a friend to Rwanda by the lack of flexibility (and a couple thousand Euros), I bought and ordered some pretty nice Rwandian coffees.   Kamjumba from Hannover’s 24grad roasters was the first Rwanda I had since 2014, as far as I recall. It surprised me by connecting to […]

First Love (Espresso Blend) from Public Coffee Roasters, Hamburg

Gone, okay, but not as good as I remembered. As much Love I got from Public’s Claudio José, this Espresso won’t be a longer term partner in our home. Let’s stay friend’s okay. But there will be different beans in my bags. Came out slightly to sour, not as fruity as I wished, but with […]

Bifdu Gudina, Ethiopia from Five Elephant Berlin vs. Bifdu Gudina, Ethiopia from Koppi, Helsingborg

Well, that’s a challenge for my humbly developed coffee palate. Two classy, light roasted coffees, roasted from the ”same“ beans. The Bifdu Gudina beans come from the Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union in Agoda (in the very North of Ethiopia). The cooperative consists of 130 smallholder farmers. The Ethiopian Heirloom varietal coffee is traditionally grown […]

Claudio José, Costa Rica from Public Coffee Roasters, Hamburg

Why put milk in coffee, when you can have a black coffee with a creamy smooth finish anyways? This coffee has some exotic fruit hints, but really not too much in your face. A little oaky but overall just a really soft and tender drinking experience.
