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.

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.

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.

Sitio do Cruz, Brazil from Fjord, Berlin 

A little to much smoke and tobacco notes for my taste. Very little fermentation taste and smell for a natural. Pretty solid but nothing to remember for an eternity.

Sidamo Q (Espresso), Ethiopia from Fjord, Berlin

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

Kagumo Ini AB+, Kenya from Fjord, Berlin

Bitter-sweet symphony. Light but with power, fruity but with velocity and verve. I found it hard to deconstruct its flavors into seperate elements, but still liked its overall tones, scents and taste.

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.

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.

Karindundu AA, Kenya from Fjord, Berlin

Oaky tannins, almonds, cherry coke and rhubarb cake. Chimney feeling. Just a little too much wood shavings in the after taste, but not in a terrible way. This was my first purchase at Fjord and I’d shop this again.
