Elida, Panama from Public Coffee Roasters, Hamburg

Oh, this tender blueberry sweetness. Still really digging these beans which were some of the firsts who got me into third wavey filter coffees. It fills the cheeks with joy, slenders some sage and thyme to the left and right but over all pleased with fruity berries and a little stone fruit kick.

Porto Blend (Espresso) from Nord Coast Coffee Roastery, Hamburg

Robusta strikes back! In this coffee you get what you expect in an Italian style roasted espresso blend. Fluffy crema, smooth creamy texture and a strong nutty taste. Great as a digestive after a fatty lasagna. But not quiet what I love in an espresso. For that purpose I’d rather get that Kenyan from Nord […]

José Martínez, Columbia from Langøra Kaffebrenneri, Stjørdal

The beans smell like a freshly opened package of rum-raisin-nut chocolate. And it also remains some of this in the cup. Sweet, fruity (apricot, rasperry) aspects are dominating this fantastic honey processed microlot coffee. It only has very little fermentation notes and these blend in very smoothly in it’s round, silky yet very complexe structure […]

Comsa Bio, Honduras from Nord Coast Coffee Roastery, Hamburg

„Beware, it’s a rather traditional darker roast.“ I’ve been warned and bought regardless. For sure it is rather nutty, chocolatey experience (think Manner wafers) but pretty fine. Some very light clove notes, a full round body and a pleasent finish. It’s far away from being burned but however a little to dark for what I […]

Gakenke, Burundi from Langøra Kaffebrenneri, Stjørdal

Pineapple sweetness and acidity and a full creamy body are only some aspects of this Burundi. Something in this coffee reminds me of the warmed up leftovers of a delicious pleasently stomach warming goulash stew. Some hints of allspice maybe, some soft beefy texture, roasted bell pepper sweetness.

Mathareni AA+, Kenya from Langøra Kaffebrenneri, Stjørdal

Sometimes when I’m baking I split the cake in a in a rhubarb and a apple half, ’cause the kids don’t care so much about rhubarb, which I really love. And on the border of both where you got chunks of both it usually tastes best. And that’s what this coffee reminds me of. Including […]

Endebess Estate, Kenya from roestbar, Münster

It’s good to have a natural again. And such a great one! Yes, it got some sour doughy fermentation notes, yes it is rougher, it surely doesn’t give you the cleanest and crispest cup. But. Hell yeah, it’s good. The description “Apple Cidre, Vanilla, Honeymelon” is pretty accurate, also the Cidre is very dominant and vanilla […]

Kagumoini, Kenya from Tim Wendelboe, Oslo

I was tired and clumsyly opening the bag, when that scent hit me in the face and I was like wooohooooooo!. Just like opening your car door besides a cattle farm. Strong earthy, lightly moldy but not unspleasently herbal and sweet smells just fired up from that beans. Getting it in the cup just made […]
