Gigesa Grande 1 Naural, Ethiopia from Colonna, Corsham

That is 1nice natural from Scotland with origins in the Guji Zone, Ethiopia. Just very light fermentation notes. But a powerful mouthful of sweetness, apricot, lime and caramel. Very taste, nicely balanced but with distinct characteristics.

Santa Rita, El Salvador from Man versus Machine, Munich

A coffee full of toffee. Nom nom nom. But Santa Rita from Santa Ana delivers more than sweetness. Peach and grape fruitiness completes this one.

Matyatzo Espresso, Rwanda from Fjord, Berlin

Such a harmonic cup. Light, lime acidity with just a sparkle of almond and dark chocolate. Pretty fine in milk based beverages, too. 

 La flor del cafe, Cajamarca, Peru from Ernst Kaffeeröster, Cologne 

Kinder chocolate bars melting on my tongue. Some caramel dipped Oreos and a sprinkle of lime. Yummy and smooth. Heart warming, like a lovely summer day. 

Mbrizi, Sehe, Burundi from Bonanza Coffee Roasters, Berlin

Very herbal. Very rough. Very interesting. Somehow challenging. Wasn’t allways easy to really brew it on point. If done so: a lot of cherry jam with the herbs, some rose and plum. And a lot of fun. 

Kochere PB+, Ethiopia from Langøra Kaffebrenneri, Stjørdal

Apricot juice blended with a spicy almondy sweetness and a full body. Very pleasent and very gentle and pretty subtle for a natural. Great cup.

Toarco A, Indonesia, Man versus Machine, Munich


The Bocasso from MVSM hasn’t really convinced us. It was a little dull. This Toarco A is a powerbank. Plum, apricot, marzipan. And full frontal awesomeness. Tender touch and finish. Both as filter and espresso a really charming coffee.

Schwendener (Espresso) Guatemala from Hænowitz&Page, Basel

Great memories! Blackberry, apricot ice cream, almonds.
