Kaffebox – January 20 Box Preview: Gringo Nordic Coffee Roasters

Now it’s finally time for the next KaffeBox. It’s been so long since I’ve reviewed KaffeBox, I guess it’s going to be less often since it always gets stuck in customs, last time I reviewed as Octobers box, However, let’s begin by going through the October 19 box!

This will be the 22st time for KaffeBoxyou can read the most previous post here.

The coffee comes from the Swedish, Gothenburg roastery Gringo Nordic Coffee Roasters. In the coming days, we will review coffee from Colombia followed by a coffee from Burundi.

I think we all know that this is by far the first time I try Gringo Nordic Coffee Roasters.

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

Gringo Nordic Coffee Roasters, Gothenburg, Sweden.

It’s been a while since I reviewed a coffee with the Pink Bourbon* Variety. So it’s always interesting to see what will actually be the result. So I’m quite intrigued. Just by reading the description and their taste notes it sounds purely amazing. I look forward to drinking this!


*The Pink Bourbon is a hybrid between yellow and red bourbon.

2) Gahahe
Personal cupping and recipe will be published 2020-02-19

Origin: Burundi

Cupping notes from the coffee roastery:
Red Citrus, Ripe Berries & Rhubarb

It’s been a while since I’ve been surprised or left with awe with a coffee from Burundi. It never seems to hit the points for me, maybe It’s not the perfect fit of origin for me when it comes to coffee since it’s to tea-like. However, the tea-like tend to be more expressive than others when it comes to cold brew.

Conclusion: I’m quite sure that I already know which one will be the best of these to, subjectively of course. And that will be Colombia, it sounds so good and smells amazing!

On a more sad note, I’ve tried a lot of coffee from Gringo Nordic Coffee Roasters the last two months so It will be a bit boring to me and probably to you who actually read this blog. But bare with me here, there will be some new stuff coming up soon!

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 have great hopes for this January 20 Box!
