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.

Karimikui AA, Kenya from Roestbar, Münster

Ferrero Mon Cherie but in not-disgusting. Cherry, berry, chocolate. Sweetness and some toasted oak barrel aromas. I thing I got even more from it, when the bag was fresh but even after a month fully satisfying.

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.

Tegu AA, Nyeri, Kenya from Nømad, Barcelona 

There is a fancy flower in my cup. Just in bloom. Rose, peach blossom. A thin slice of nougat melting on my tongue. Sweet and elegant.

Kamwangi PB, Kenya from Drop Coffee Roasters, Hägersten

Honey melon, plum and a little hazlenut sprinkle. Heart warming, like a good morning hug in the most beautiful place on earth. … Well maybe a little exaggerated. But like a hug in a regular bed, maybe. Sweet, a little thick on the tongue and full of harmony.

Baragwi, Kenya from April Coffee, Copenhagen

You gotta spend some time, love, with this coffee. Rather a stranger than a lover for the crowds but I dig it. Jasmine-rose floral notes, even some sage along with fruity peach-berry juice.

Kenya West, Kenya from Playground Coffee, Hamburg

A little sandy, very herbal, some gooseberries. Pretty complexe and rich taste. Very creamy body and a little oregano and tannin on the finish.

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.

Muranga Kagumoini, Kenya from 24grad Kaffeerösterei, Hannover

I’m getting more into Kenyan coffees recently. Some overwhelming like the Kagumoini from Tim Wendleboe really hit me up. So I was tempted to try 24grad’s attempt on this beans. It’s quiet a difference. Fine sparkles of apple and stonefruit, Darjeeling notes and humble ideas of berries and exotic fruits. Complexe but very modest. Needs […]

Karimikui, Kenya from La Cabra Coffee Roasters, Aarhus

Fresh lemony acidity with a good bunch of sweetened grapefruit. It’s got a light and soft body and some hints of liquorice and woodruff. Really nice, easy going coffee, not as overwhelming as the last coffees I had from this young Danish roaster but, heck, is that nice.
