On the Menu

Brazilian Pinheirnho (Natural processed Yellow Bourbon) roasted by @lacabracoffee is in the espresso grinder now and the comming days. Very chocolaty and balanced spiciness!
It will be followed by Nicaraguan Finca Limoncillo's Washed Caturra with thick caramel sweetness and a lovely apple acidity in the finish (Roast by @hasbean).

On the "Special Espresso" menu - from the EK43 grinder - there are still a few Granitos de Ortiz Geisha shots left. 
It will be followed tomorrow by Malawi Msese - washed Nykia & Geisha - A very special coffee and recent winner of Taste of Harvest in Nairobi.

On the shelves

Summer is the time to enjoy the bright and fruity African coffees. 
Right now there are loads of African beans on the shelves: @lacabracoffee's Kenyan Washed SL28 "Kaiguri" (notes of red and black currants) and washed Ethiopian heirloom from the "Konga" wetmill (notes: floral, black tea and lemon). From @hasbean: washed "Kurume" from Gedeb in Ethiopia (notes of apricot and fruit sweetness) and a revisit from Malawi; the Taste of Harvest winner: "Msese" composed of Washed Nykia and Geisha, an amazing and somewhat surprising experience of floral notes and lemony citrus that turns into toffee sweetness with a huge mouthfeel.
