Kaffebox – October 18 Box Preview: Morgon Coffee Roasters

Now it’s finally time for the next KaffeBox, for some reason it hasn’t taken a long time at all receiving this package of coffees, so let’s go with the October month now when the September review is done. We have to catch up!!

So it didn’t take as long time as last time, I can actually rewrite what was written at that time:

“the reason why it’s taken such a long time is that of Postnord (Swedish postal service) requires a declaration cost from the recipient and an added 21 days of delivery time. Just because Norway (KaffeBox is Norwegian) hasn’t joined the EU. I have to add that it’s very strange Sweden has no exception to our neighbors.”

This will be the eleventh 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 Morgon Coffee Roasters. This week we will review one coffee from El Salvador and Ethiopia.

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

Morgon Coffee Roasters, Gothenburg, Sweden.

1) Gilberto Baraona El Salvador
Personal cupping and recipe will be published 2018-12-14

Origin: El Salvador
Variety:  Pacamara
Farm: Gilberto Baraona
Region: Usulatan
Process: Honey
Altitude: 1 350 meters above sea level.

Cupping notes from the coffee roastery:
Elegant, milk chocolate & grapefruit.

Expectation: I actually fell for it at first smell, this coffee smells so good! And I’m so happy to see a coffee with a different process than Washed and I’m actually even happier to see it being a Honey process. This sounds golden, let’s hope it will deliver as well!


2) Harenja Ethiopia
Personal cupping and recipe will be published 2018-12-17

Origin: Ethiopia
Variety:  Dega, Gurume
Farm: Harenja
Region: Yirgacheffe
Process: Washed
Altitude: 2 100 meters above sea level.

Cupping notes from the coffee roastery:
Juicy, peach & floral.

Expectation: You can’t go wrong with Yirgacheffe, it will be nice to drink a peachy coffee again. It was a long time ago actually, at least it feels like it. I would not expect anything else than solid.


Conclusion: I’m glad to see a Swedish roastery again in a subscriber box in KaffeBox. Morgon Coffee Roasters is a very young roastery, they started their roastery in 2018 and funny enough we’re at the end of that year.

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.

If we battle these two coffees against each other I have to say that the first coffee looks like a solid winner. It will be interesting to try the somewhat young Morgon Coffee Roastery! I’m saying somewhat because their experience probably began much earlier than 2018.
