The Coffeevine February 18 Box Preview

Now it’s finally time to write about the Coffeevine’s February 18 box, in this post I will write a few short posts about each coffee, where the coffee roaster is from, where the coffee comes from and my expectations about the coffee itself.


1) Onyx Coffee Lab, USA.
Personal cupping and recipe available 2018-03-07

Origin: Colombia
Variety:  Caturra, Bourbon
Farm: Aponte Village
Region: Nariño
Process: Honey
Altitude: 2 100 meters above sea level.

Cupping notes:
Strawberry. floral honey, brown sugar & pie crust.

Expectation: It’s not often I get the chance to drink coffee from coffee roasters from the United States. So every time I get the chance, I have high demands. I like honey something so incredible so it really feels like it could be a hit.

2) Stow Coffee Roasters, Slovenia.
Personal cupping and recipe available 2018-03-08

Origin: Kenya
Variety: Arabica sl 28 sl 34
Farm: Thuti
Region: Nyeri
Process:  Washed
Altitude: 1 900 meters above sea level.

Cupping notes:
Grape, raspberry & caramel.

Expectation: I am very curious about this, as the coffee has a fantastic smell, I hope it tastes the same as it smells.


3) Don Gallo, Spain.
Personal cupping and recipe available 2018-03-09

Origin: Ethiopia
Farm: Mormora Estate
Region: Guji
Process: Natural
Altitude: 1 900 – 2 000 meters above sea level.

Cupping notes:
Floral, strawberry, lime & chocolate.

Expectation: Also a spicy coffee. Spanish coffee makers are often included in The Coffeevine boxes, which will probably be around and everyday coffee.



Conclusion: This will be really exciting, I do not have a personal favorite right away. Of course, I claim Onyx Coffe Lab, but I still think 2) Stow Coffee Roasters or 3) Don Gallo will get a better result.

I do not know if I talked about it before, but a “Honey” process is much harder to make than “Natural” or, most simply, “Washed”.

I have not told you before, but let’s say it. If you want help with recipes, thoughts or just want to get answers from me. Comment on this post, email me at or go to my Instagram and write a private message there.
