April's tasting box is off! We sent three excellent coffees from Turun Kahvipaahtimo. The Kenyan coffee, Kamwangi Coop, was used by one of the contestants in the Finnish Brewers Cup. We hope you will enjoy these coffees just us much as we've had, we've selected them with care. Mahembe was Samuli's, at Turun Kahvipaahtimo, personal favourite. We love them all.
