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.

Apu, Peru from Bonanza Coffee Roasters, Berlin

Is there a little curry in my nose? Taste is rather subtle. A little mango, some herbal flavors. Has definetly lost a lot aroma during just three weeks. Or maybe I just had stronger memories from first opening it. … Thanx, Eve for this coffee.

Sidamo Q (Filter), Ethiopia from Fjord, Berlin

Toffee sweet, juicy, melon and apricot powered, flower injected goodness. Balanced but full of character. Easy going but not boring. So different from the tangerine explosion of its espresso sibling. 

Morundo, Rwanda from Workshop Coffee

Clean cup, full rhytm, juicy balanced body. Fine components of apricot juice, jasmine tea, honey and a lot of goodness. Another really great Rwandan coffee, this time from Kivu Belt (Gihombo, Nyamasheke) region. Maybe a place to stop when I’ll be in Rwanda next winter.  

Windrush Espresso, Kenya from Fjord, Berlin

Oh my! That’s the most delicate espresso I was able to get out of my humble QuickMill since I started taking tasting notes here. Bursts of juicy currant, elder flower and hints of sweet plum. And a very gentle elegant apple cider acidity without any unpleasant sourness. Lovely.

Guji Highlands, Oromia, Shakisso, Ethiopia from Coutume, Paris

From Paris with love. Like an intimate drinkable bubble bath. Smooth tender lust and creamy vanilla, smashing jasmine power. Pure love. Too sad, it’s gone. 

Novo Canaã Obatã, Brazil from Five Elephant, Berlin

I just love well made naturals. This is definitely in the game. Second flush Darjeeling tea notes. A little banana bread flavor in the body.
