Visiting “the coffee capital” Triest. Drop by at Draw Coffee and buying some Espresso Blend from La Triestina Torrefazione, Triest

Italian harbour town Triest defines itself as “the coffee capital”. But that is for sure not true for third wave coffee. And while – as everywhere – the third wave banks up in Italy I couldn’t find any of that. Some research brought me to Draw coffee which borrowed a lot of fancy styling from […]

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 […]

The Ethiopian Heirloom varietal coffee is traditionally grown […]

#thirdwavewichteln has been a blast again. I was participating for the third time and am as happy as could be about the whole experience and community behind the project. I fall in love with Yirgacheffes, when I got Kansas roasted coffee from Laura in 2013/14. I had a marvelous private coffee swap with Marlous after […]

Just Another Coffee Blog

Oh. Well. 2015 hasn’t been a great blogging year for me. But it’s been a heck of a coffee year. A lot of delicious coffees brewed with love in nice cafés, at home, outdoors and elsewhere passed my lips. Vanished. Unforgotten. But also undocumented. While my running log and cake log raise claim to completeness, […]
