Coffee Subscription

We’ve been working on hard on a project that we’re finally launching today. We are starting a  coffee subscription service!

Coffee Subscription

Bean Portal is Sweden’s first coffee subscription, featuring only specialty coffee. Subscribers will receive a box with three carefully selected specialty coffees from a different coffee roastery every month. Each coffee comes in 100 gram increments, offering a total of 300 grams of coffee.

We are proud to finally launch our service and share all amazing coffees we taste with you. We hope you’ll join us!

Now check out http://beanportal.com. If you want to follow our work on instagram click here, and be sure to like our Facebook page!

Drop Coffee – Epiphany Muhirwa  (Rwanda)

What we tasted: Sweet all the way through. Lemonade, lingonberries.

What the package said: Lingonberries and cacao butter.

Conclusion: This coffee is yum. Well balanced and full bodied. A must try.

Where to get it: Kaffemaskinen at Landsvägsgatan 15 here in Gothenburg or on their website.

 

Love Coffee – Cafisur (Colombia)

What we tasted: Milk chocolate, red currant.

What the package said: Cacao, cherries and blackberries.

Conclusion: It’s a well balanced sweet coffee with a hit of acid, but almost too balanced to stand out among the other coffees.

Where to get it: Not sold in Gothenburg. Check their website.

 

Drop Coffee – Ilomba (Tanzania)

What we tasted: Black currant, elderflower.

What the package said: White currant and elderflower.

Conclusion: We very much agreed with what the package says. When you realize that this coffee actually taste like elderflower, you can’t get it out of your head (in a good way).

Where to get it: Kaffemaskinen at Landsvägsgatan 15 here in Gothenburg or their website.

 

Alkemisten, roasted by Sandby Kafferosteri – Singel (Ethiopia)

What we tasted: Dill, citrus, burnt sugar, nutty.

What the package said: Citrus, lemon grass.

Conclusion: When we say dill we are not kidding, though it might have been our cupping method that enhanced the dill taste. In our opinion it is a bit too dark roasted. We will not buy this one again.

Where to get it: At Alkemisten.

 

Koppi – Sehe (Burundi)

What we tasted: Tomatoes, juicy, sweet.

What the package said: Darjeeling, black currants and sweet citrus.

Conclusion: This is a really good, light roasted coffee. It was used in the Polish Aeropress championship and we can definitely see why.

Where to get it: Unfortunately not sold in Gothenburg. Check their website.
