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!

Kochere Filter, Ethiopia from Fjord, Berlin

A coffee without any worries and concerns. Light hearted, easy going, gentle and fair, like a soft stroke through the hair. Honey, hazelnut, plum and peach. Take me to tuscany or take me to the beach.

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

Lemony freshness, with Raclette roughness … or well, maybe at least a little black teaish with some floral notes here and there. Not to sweet, not to crowdpleasing smooth, but rich in taste without being uber-complex. Pretty much everything I adore in a coffee, not over the top super-exciting. But damn good.

Warquee Lot #2, Kochere Ethiopia from Nero Scuro, San Giuseppe di Cassola

Stonefruit and apple powered juicy goodness with some non-sticky nougat roundness. Herbal fragrance and quiet sweetness. Warming, pleasing, layed back coffee experience. … One of many great recommendations from the discussions on the fantastic thirdwavewichteln facebook group.

Konga, Ethiopia from april coffee, Copenhagen

“No, I don’t have tea, but I can serve you a very tea-ish coffe!” … when Alex and me did our second DIY coffee booth at the educational congress “schulen. gestalten. zukunft.“ we had some non-coffee-drinking guests, who where really pleased with this Konga. And I as a coffee lover am also pretty much in love […]

Bifdu Gudina, Ethiopia from Vagabond, London

If you eat thinly sliced, well aged Comté cheese and it really melts on your tongue but you eat it with its rind it might compliments the cheese’s tendernes and sweetness with some rather tard and herbal flavors. That was my association with this coffee. It is fruity with some sweet nearly candy like cherries […]

Teklu Demble, Kochere, Ethiopia from Gardelli, Forli

Tender grapes, intense Barrique, yet it’s not a Bordeaux or a Chianti but the amazing coffee from Italy’s roasting champion 2014-2016 Rubens Gardelli. Some exotic fruits and thyme in the finish. Lovely pick from The Coffee Vine Folks.
