La Reforma, Guatemala from 24grad Kaffeerösterei, Hannover

It’s fat and juicy. It gots a full body, a spicy taste and sprinkles of orange and stone fruit. Sweet, not quiet fancy but really nice.

El Limoncillo, Nicaragua from Nord Coast, Hamburg

Nord Coast Coffee Roastery is one of the newest players in Hamburgs third wave coffee scenery and I am pretty impressed with the first coffee I tried so far. It’s a Limoncillo from Nicaragua with similar huge and light roasted beans as those from Coffee Proficiency In Krakow that I got wichteled two month ago. […]

Chelbessa, Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia from Neues Schwarz, Dortmund

  This is the first coffee I tried from Dortmund based roasters Neues Schwarz, and I’m blown away. I just now while sipping the last cups realizing it’s an Yirgacheffe. It’s got some of it’s typical honey sweetness and fruitiness … but much more subtle and not so much in your face. What makes this Chelbessa special […]

Malawi from Chucky’s Coffee House, Sofia

Very subtle and quiet. No trumpets and no drums. It has very soft hints of milk chocolate and melon. Very light body and a pleasant finish.

Geisha Trapiche Natural, Panama from Machhörndl, Nürnberg

  Such a nice juice. Such a well scented source of pleasure. Once every couple of month it’s really worth going the extra mile for a bag of Geisha coffee. And from the few Geishas I had so far none of them was a disappointment. … 12,60€ for 125g seems to be pretty expensive, and for sure […]

cc-by-sa – Coffee created by yourself shared around.

If you are out on a conference without fancy coffee catering you have the choice of either drinking bad coffee or brew your on stuff. (That’s what I do on all of my work trips.) And I’m not alone in this field. Known for that, Alex and me have been invited to set up a […]

Los Lajones Estate, Panama from Black Delight, Hamburg

This coffee is jazz! … Kicks right in with trumpets and swings your mood. Not the most polished cup, not to smooth and round, but cheerful as an Ella Fitzgerald with a big band on a record with some scratches. Its blue(berry) notes are accompanied with some whiskey mouthfeel from last night. The combination of a […]

Samambaia, Brazil from Machhörndl, Nürnberg

I forgot my travel cactus but got all my coffee gear. And the last 15 grams of this yummi coffee. Some stone fruit, some nuts and a pleasent tongue. Not a must-instantly-buy-again. Though rock solid.

Maraba Sovu, Grand Fromage, Rwanda from Small Batch Coffee Roasters, Brighton

   This great Rwandan coffee is not only a Cup of Excellence winner but always has been a bold cup of full powered honey sweetness in my mugs. Its mild and juicy with some hints of strawberry yoghurt chocolate, some black tea notes and berries. Just not so much cheese as in the caption. Now […]

Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia from Nahat, Tel Aviv

I missed visiting Nahat, when I was in TLV last autumn. And now Nahat came to me (thank you roxyvespa!) and brought some grains of sandstorm from the Negev with it. That was probably the most earthy, ground on the feet Yirgacheffe I remember. Less fruit than I expected, less acidity than I thought but still […]
