Idido, Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia from Blommers, Nijmegen

A spontanious stop on the way from Brugges to Hamburg that costs us 2 hours of time and a 36€ speeding ticket (for beeing 4 km/h to fast). But totally worth it. Loaded a kilogram of best stuff from that dutch coffee shop and it did not only make me very happy. Sweet as honey, pretty […]

Shilichorr, Sidama (Espresso), Ethiopia from Hænowitz&Page, Basel

Dark heavy, nutty. Memories to this coffee’s taste fade away. But the purchasing experience at the roastery in Basel and the whole day there are still alive in my mind.

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.

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.

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.

Cheketa micro-lot, Oromia, Shakisso, Ethiopia from Coutume, Paris 

A coffee like breakfast in bed. Honey kisses grapefruit. A bite of croissant au beurre with some strawberry jam. Jelly beans blend with elegant pralines (what ever they do on a breakfast tray, but hey, if it’s breakfast in bed, it’s probably weekend. So why not. Damn, must be ages ago that I had breakfast […]

Nano Challa, Ethiopia from Koppi, Helsingborg

Light shivers going down your spine, while this coffee strokes your back from the inside. Apricot-lemon pie with a cup of jasmin flavored tea. Voilà. Sweet, smooth, warming, pretty satisfying.

Wote, Ethiopia from Weekenders Coffee, Kyoto

Oh, how I’ll miss, your tender kiss. The coffee is gone, but it’s not forgotten. Sweet strawberries, melting caramel fudge pudding. This Yirgacheffe was really a cutie pie. Soft and fine!
