Kaffebox – January 18 Box Preview: Talor & Jørgen

Time for another KaffeBox preview post (you can the last preview here). This month’s coffee comes from the Oslo located coffee roastery Talor & Jørgen, it’s two very interesting coffee bags. Tomorrow you’ll read about the cupping, review and recipe for the coffee from Burundi, on Friday you’ll read about the Colombian one.

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

Talor & Jørgen, Oslo, Norway.

1) Lime & Grønn te
Personal cupping and recipe will be published 2018-01-18

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

Cupping notes:
Lime & Green Tea.

Expectation: My first thought is that this will be very exciting, the information about the coffee makes me think about interesting ways to develop a recipe. Good sign! Coffee from Burundi isn’t the most common of countries when it comes to coffee, but it’s very good. I believe this will have a mild acidity and very smooth with its bitterness.

2) Kirsebær & Dobbel krem
Personal cupping and recipe will be published 2018-01-19

Origin: Colombia
Variety: Castillo, Caturra
Farm: Fabio Nelson Romero
Region: Tolima
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1 600-2 000 meters above sea level.

Cupping notes:
Cherry & Double Cream.

Expectation: This sounds like an amazing coffee, a coffee that I undoubtedly throw in the shopping cart. Cherries are a bit of a favorite flavor for me, and Colombian coffee with cherry tones is usually a home run.


Review:  As usual, KaffeBox stands for an incredibly well-packaged product, a nice paper with barista theme concealing the coffee bags. Very neat!

I have to say one thing, the packaging design is by far the prettiest thing I have seen when it comes to coffee. The style resembles very much about Hergé’s (Georges Prosper Remi) Tintin’s adventure. Nice colors and is guaranteed to have on the shelf at home, much like my picture!

If you want to buy your very own KaffeBox and go through my recipes and reflections, be sure to order it so you can be ready for next month’s KaffeBox. Click here to order from their website.
