SCA Sweden – Vinnarkaffet 2018

I’m gonna begin with saying that this is a great idea. It is a blend of this year’s Swedish competition coffee, which SCA Sweden, in collaboration with Ally Coffee, has roasted a Vinnarkaffe (Winning Coffee). Given that it’s a blend, the coffee is so balanced, it’s not acidic at all.

A blend of Colombian, Brazilian and Ethiopian coffee. The first two are Washed and the Ethiopian is Honey Processed. Tones we can expect is citrus, apple & nuts.

 

Pour Over:

17g coffee (grind setting 19D at Baratza Sette 270, medium)
225g of filtered water
40g bloom 50 seconds
92 degrees Celsius

1) 40g bloom for 50 seconds, stir with a bamboo stirrer to get all coffee moistened.
2) 225g water in a circular flow (this includes 40g water blooming). This including 50 second blooming, your timing should be in 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

 

Espro Travel Press:

19g coffee (grind setting 26B at Baratza Sette 270)
284g of filtered water
94 degrees Celsius

1) After pouring both the coffee and the water, stir the coffee 10 times. I suggest you use a bamboo stirrer. Avoid sharp objects.
2) Screw the press and let steep for 4 minutes
3) Press slowly, if the press gets stuck, just lift the press and try again. It is normal.
4) Serve or seal the lid.

Review:

An amazing initiative. The money for “vinnarkaffet” (Winning Coffee) goes to the association (SCA Sweden) which, in turn, invests the money to spread specialty coffee in Sweden. Which is a little what I want to do with kaffenytt.se, but also outside Sweden.

The coffee is relatively sweet with friendly tones right through, a perfect coffee for those who start drinking coffee or specialty coffee. No bitter tones at all and it’s really good together with “fika”, breakfast or other times you take a snack.

According to the description of the bag, I would expect citrus, apple, and nuts. Personally, I thought it had a powerful note of nuts and sweet cacao. I have also brewed the coffee (in addition to the Hario V60 & Espro Travel Press) brewed plain electric filter brewer, Aeropress, and French press. The coffee works all of the time, simply a good blend for a winning coffee!
