drop-coffee-kamiro

What we tasted: Lemon, herbs, earth, green tea

What the package said: Lemon and Strawberries

Conclusion: Literally a bomb of lemons. Would probably be perfect for a cold brew on a hot summers day!

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

Koppi – Nyungwe Pb (Rwanda)

koppi-nyungwe-pb

What we tasted: Grapes, raisins

What the package said: Grapes, rose hips, apples

Conclusion: Drinking this coffee is almost like a glass of wine. One of our favourites this cupping session. We had problems finding the apple taste though.

Where to get it: Koppi’s website.

Slöinge Kafferosteri – San Juan (Guatemala)

sloinge-san-juan

What we tasted: Hazelnut, burnt sugar, butter

What the package said: Apple, nougat, butterscotch

Conclusion: This is a coffee from a roastery in a small town called Slöinge on the west coast of Sweden. Founded by a guy named Daniel, who was taught by Per Nordby, this is a roastery that brings more and more interesting coffees to the market. Even though this one was a bit darker than we expected, it still gives a fine cup of coffee with a full bodied after-taste!

Where to get it: Mellgren’s Fine Tobacco, Mölndalsvägen 3 here in Gothenburg.

Koppi – El Parador (Colombia)

koppi-el-parador

What we tasted: Toasty, sweet orange, papaya and kiwi

What the package said: Papaya, macadamia and mandarin

Conclusion: Makes a really fruity cup of coffee.

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