Espresso: Brazil Bota Foro Pulped Natural, Estate lot

Posted by on - in Blog | 0 comments

It has been a while since we bought a nice Brazilian coffee. We wanted a house espresso that went really well with milk so we chose this time for something out of the ordinary. Mostly all the amazing Brazils go to big names and companies but this one slipped past the attention of some buyers. Pulped Natural is that the depulped cherry is layed out to dry, at Both Fora on cement patios. This gives the coffee sweetness but also it retains the acidity. We think the coffee goes really well with milk, giving notes like praline and chocolate. Almost like nutella in the cup! The acidity makes us think like red cherries. We think this will be a hit in the...

Espresso: Rwanda Nyakizu

Posted by on - in Blog | 0 comments

We love our Rwanda coffees and this is the last of three we selected for this year. We waited on purpose with getting this one, when we first cupped it we thought is was too ‘green’ and we decided to let it rest at the warehouse. Now we think the time is right to roast it. Nyakizu strongly made its way into our shop with floral and vibrant cup profiles. This year’s profile is slightly different, with a more accessible sparkling acidity and richer sugary notes, while preserving the black tea character. We hope you will like it on...

This is the third year we bought this coffee from This Side Up and we still really like the coffee. It is less sparkling then the other years but still very sweet with notes like red grape, figs but also berries and raisins or dried fruits. There could be some strawberry in the aroma and when it cools some tropical yellow fruits like papaya. This is a really nice example what good harvesting and processing does with good coffee. Keep it...

Filter: Kenya Muranga Mirichu PB

Posted by on - in Blog | 0 comments

After the great Giathugu AA comes this Muranga Mirichu PB, a small pearly bean that really kicks a punch. We love PB’s, they are natural mutations where one bean is formed in the cherry instead of two. In this cup, we believe there is some amazing sweetness but also rhubarb, chocolate and a well balanced body. We love it!
