Hi all! Hope you enjoyed October month’s coffee box.
This month we are shipping coffee from The Broker Coffee Roastery from Uppsala, Sweden. We are really excited to send you this coffee for several reasons: The Broker is one of the more recently started roasters in Sweden which makes this a unique chance to get a taste of his coffee. We’ve tried all of the coffees that Johan, the founder, had available right now, and found all of them absolutely splendid. But we had to choose three.
The first coffee is a Kenyan one from the district Murang’a, and it gets its name from the wet mill Githiga. It has been The Broker’s most popular coffee and we can definitely see why.The first time we tried this coffee it was 6 months off roast, but still, we were thrilled. We were able to get our hands on the last kilos Johan had left of this coffee. It’s a juicy coffee, tasteful but well balanced between the sweetness and acidity.
The second coffee is called Tweega and it’s also an African coffee but this time from Tanzania. We are very glad to have the possibility to send this beautiful coffee from a country that’s not very well known for its coffee. This is a rich coffee with notes of ripe fruits with a sweet taste.
The third and final coffee is also from Kenya and is called Kiunyu. This is a new coffee and is later meant to “replace” Githiga. We absolutely loved both of them and are glad that we have the possibility to send you both. Kiunyu is a very well balanced kenyan coffee. Here you’ll find notes of pineapple and stonefruit.
