Budhas Kafferosteri – Årets Julkaffe 2019 (Annual Christmas Coffee 2019)

This will be the seventh time Budhas Kafferosteri enters kaffenytt, who is one of my favorite coffee roasters. This little package was sent to me from him himself,  I don’t know if this was by pure luck or if Budha actually knew it himself but I received this bag of lovely coffee on my birthday a couple of months ago. Anyways a great way to celebrate.

This review has been on hold for a while (because of the Christmas-theme), and the same goes for coffee from Budhas Kafferosteri, it’s been a while since I wrote a review of their coffee (click Budhas Kafferosteri to see all previous and later posts). On the back of the bag of Budhas Kafferosteri, it’s as usual:

“We are an artisan coffee roastery in the north of Sweden Lapland. We roast our coffee with passion in small batches, using a traditional drumroast”

Information and recipe for the coffee:

Origin: Costa Rica
Variety: Caturra
Producer: Estrella Naranjo
Region: Los Robles de Naranjo, West Valley
Process: Honey
Altitude: 1 300 – 1 700 m.a.s.l

Pour Over:

20 g coffee (grind setting 26B at Baratza Sette 270, medium)
300 g filtered water
60 g blooming 45 seconds
92 degrees Celsius

1) Pour 60g water for blooming for 45 seconds.
2) 45 seconds in, begin your second pour of 60g of water.
3) 1 minute and 30 seconds in,  begin your third pour of 60g of water.
4) 2 minutes and 15 seconds in,  begin your fourth pour of 60g of water.
5) 3 minutes in,  begin your fifth pour of 60g of water.
6) Stop the dripper at 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

*Always rinse the paper filter with filtered hot water, don’t forget to wash the coffee server with clean water afterward, because the taste of the paper might linger.

Wow, just wow, this isn’t like the common Christmas Coffees out there. This is by far the best Christmas Coffee I’ve ever tried out, ever! However, it doesn’t give me that special Christmas feel, it doesn’t have that spicy taste profile that a coffee representing Christmas should have. This isn’t a problem for me since it’s amazing!

As I wrote above, I get the feeling that this coffee is suited for any kind of yearly season, so drinking it exclusively for Christmas is a joy and a luxury. If we read the description we can read that the flavor notes are:

“Chocolate, Sweet orange, hazelnut, well balance and clean after taste.”

I mean, this is so good. The chocolate is the biggest and most present flavor in this coffee and I do believe that it’s the most sought after. As usual I’m very happy to try another coffee from Budhas Kafferosteri! It’s always a joy!
