Kenya West, Kenya from Playground Coffee, Hamburg

A little sandy, very herbal, some gooseberries. Pretty complexe and rich taste. Very creamy body and a little oregano and tannin on the finish.

Sasaba, Ethiopia from Bonanza Coffee Roasters, Berlin 

Blueberry flavored fruit bomb. Little fermentation notes, kinda liquorice, anise hints. Mouthful, fat body. Massive on AeroPress and Cafflano, still pretty powerful — and much more balanced — on V60.

Sasaba, Ethiopia from Beyond Within Coffee Roasters, Budapest

Sweet, humble and very gentle coffee. Apricot, persipan, a little nutty/nougaty. Good holiday season companion.

Chelchele, Ethiopia from Fjord, Berlin
