Amkeni, Tanzania from Black Delight Kaffeerösterei, Hamburg

I really like Black Delight and there approach to coffee. Their espresso is currently a constant resident in my portafilter. And the filters a great to, but always just a tiny bit away from being awesome. The Amkeni AA had some exotic fruit and honey notes, which where for my taste too much hidden behind […]

Current Coffee Creation Gear

What I’m using to brew depends deeply on the context (where I am, what’s available, what I want); but that’s what it is right now: A vast majority of coffees I drink are home brewn filter coffees. I do them mainly on V60 and sometimes on my Kalita 155. I found the small Kalita is […]

Finca Tamana, Columbia from Koppi, Helsingborg 

   A real pleasent sweetie pie. Fine peach sweetness. Not overwhelmingly complexe but a really nice companion.  But I really had a too large stock of coffee within the last two month, so that a lot of coffees started to faint away.

Salvador, Santa Ana, El Salvador from Playground Coffee, Hamburg

 This is probably the most nutty coffee I had from my beloved Playground roasters. Too nutty in my taste, but really nice for an occasional change. Even filtered and with a relatively high water to coffee ratio it has a loooooot body, like a fatty tomato cream soup. It’s a great cup of coffee, but […]

Flecha Roja, Costa Rica from 24grad Kaffeerösterei, Hannover

    It’s not an awful lot of espresso, that I drink recently. So sometimes it takes me quiet a while, until I finish a bag. This one was roasted end of January so pretty much an end of life coffee. It felt still remarkably fruity and crisp though its berry notes have pretty much vanished […]

Buf Coffee Remera, Rwanda from Tres Cabezas, Berlin 

20 minutes to spend changing trains at Ostkreuz, so I ran around the corner to grab a bag. ”You’d like to try something with sparkling champagne notes?“ – Sure, why not. It rather tasted like champagne truffles but – yeay – was it festive. Some fresh grapes along those buttery champagne truffles and afterwards a […]
