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 […]

Bam! Goes the tangerine granade. Some vanilla, some roasted hazelnut. But, Bam! a lot of tangerine.

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.
