Kaffebox – January 19 Box Preview: Kaffa Oslo

Now it’s finally time for the next KaffeBox, we’ve finally caught up with the date! Let’s go with the January 19 box!

This will be the 14th time for KaffeBoxyou can read the most previous post here. This month we will go back in time because Postnord kept the coffee for a month and I got it later.

The coffee comes from the Swedish Gothenburg roastery Da Matteo. This upcoming week we will review coffee from Honduras and Ethiopia.

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

Da Matteo, Gothenburg, Sweden.

1) Da Matteo – José María López
Personal cupping and recipe will be published 2019-02-27

Origin: Honduras
Variety:  Catimor, Catuai
Producer: Jose Maria Lopez
Region: Santa Barbara
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1 680  masl.

Cupping notes from the coffee roastery:
Fresh with a ripe pear sweetness and green apple acidity.

It was a while back since I tried coffee from Honduras. It has never been a hit for me, and I hope that this time the coffee from Honduras will be awesome. Da Matteo has been great for me before, but that was a very long time ago and they’ve been lacking lately.


2) Da Matteo – Uraga
Personal cupping and recipe will be published 2019-03-03

Origin: Ethiopia
Variety: Heirloom
Producer: Uraga
Region: Guji
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1 850 – 1 950 masl.

Cupping notes from the coffee roastery:
Sweet and elegant with notes of nectarine and jasmine.

I actually wrote this last time:

“As usual, there is an Ethiopian on my desk waiting to get reviewed. After reading the notes taken down by the roastery, I expect a very solid Ethiopian coffee. This will not travel to the furthest way on the spectrum at all. But that’s okay and sometimes even great. I’m looking forward to trying this out.”

It’s kind of a similar expectation, Guji is very solid but it has more berries in it than Yirgacheffe. I’m waiting to brew a very juicy and sweet cup!


Conclusion: This is actually the second time I’ll review Da Matteo (the first review can be rea here). The first time was January the 5th in 2018. At that time the bag was black instead of this off white color. That coffee was really good and I gave that coffee a rating of 7.5/10

As usual, I always wish to give a respectful greeting to KaffeBox, which allows us to get together with coffee from all over Scandinavia so that we can see how we roast differently and at the same time give us the best coffee from there. As a Swede, I hope we support our wonderful neighbors and continue to subscribe.

I can’t honestly pick a winner beforehand. So we’ll just have to try and see!
