Kaffebox – February 18 Box Preview: La Cabra

Time for another KaffeBox preview post (you can the last preview here). This month’s coffee comes from the Aarhus located coffee roastery La Cabra, it’s two very interesting coffee bags. Tomorrow you’ll read about the cupping, review, and recipe for the coffee from Colombia, on Saturday you’ll read about the Burundi one.


As usual, I start with an informative text about the coffee:

La Cabra, Aarhus, Denmark.

1) La Alsacia
Personal cupping and recipe will be published 2018-02-16

Origin: Colombia
Variety:  Caturra
Farm: Juan Pablo Villota
Region: Hacienda San Alberto
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1 650 – 1 650 meters above sea level.

Cupping notes:
Cherry, fig & chocolate

Expectation: La Alsacia sounds like a pretty nice coffee. A coffee I can drink every day usually has tones of chocolate. I can not imagine anything but a soft balance coffee that suits every coffee break.

2) Shembati
Personal cupping and recipe will be published 2018-02-17

Origin: Burundi
Variety: Bourbon
Farm: Shembati Smallholders
Region: Kayanza
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1 800 meters above sea level.

Cupping notes:
Rosehip, raspberry & jam

Expectation: This is exactly from the same farm as the last coffee from KaffeBox. I think it may be too similar to black tea again, but everything can be adjusted through a different roast to create a more coffee feeling over the cup.


Just like last month and the month before, KaffeBox stands for an incredibly well-packaged product. I know that I might repeat myself, but every coffee has its own information leaflet which is amazing.

The design on the packaging is simple and stylish. Nice and pretty with a small box where the bag of coffee is in.
