Dear friends,

February’s box was sent out yesterday with coffees from Slöinge Kafferosteri. We have selected these coffees together with Daniel, the person behind the roastery. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we have!

Soil: Hygro-Xéro-Ferrasols with Ferralic

The cooperative of Yandaro is located in the north of Burundi, just by the border to Rwanda. The vulcanic soil and good climate makes it perfect for coffee farming. The name comes from the river Yandaro, which makes its way through the valley, below where the coffee is grown. Expect notes of chocolate, brown sugar and red fruits.

Processing: Washed
Harvest: Nov 2014 - Feb 2015
Soil: Red brown soil
Altitude: 1800-2000 masl
Varieties: Ethiopian heirloom

This Ethiopian coffee is a Grade 1, which means minimal defects. It gives a clean and complex cup with notes of dark chocolate, sweet citrus and stone fruit. Abyssinian Mocca is a registered brand, and because of this the exact origin of the coffee is kept private. This coffee is brought forward by the very talented Heleanna Georgalis.


We are excited to present to you February’s roaster! We are back in Sweden, in a town with about 1000 inhabitants where Slöinge Kafferosteri is located. This is where Daniel Eråker roasts his amazing coffees.

In the small town Slöinge in the county of Halland we find Daniel, who is the founder of Slöinge Kafferosteri. A town that doesn’t even has its own banking office, has a coffee roastery that roasts some of the most delicious coffees. Daniel had thoughts on starting his own roastery for a long time, but as he was working as an engineering consultant, the step felt too big.  A few years ago Daniel was introduced to specialty coffee and his interest for coffee grew. He finally quit his job and started to roast small batches on Love Coffee’s roast under his own brand. The year was 2013 and this was the start of Slöinge Kafferosteri.

After a short time, he started to look for his own roaster. Daniel and his wife live in the old hotel of Slöinge, in which they started a bed & breakfast in 2010, Slöinge Pensionat. This made the perfect place to keep the coffee roaster. He got his own roaster, a Diedrich IR-12, and a café nearby showed interest in the great coffee coming from Slöinge Kafferosteri. Daniel’s passion for coffee made him compete in the Swedish Coffee Roasting Championship and have brought him to constantly learn more about coffee.

Slöinge Pensionat might be unique in having a coffee roastery located in the same building as a B&B. Just imagine having a delicious cup of morning coffee roasted from the room on the other side of the wall. We are proud to feature Slöinge Kafferosteri for the month of February.
