The Coffeevine October 17 Box Preview

Now it’s finally time to write about the Coffeevine’s October 17 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) Puchero, Valladolid, Spain.

Origin: Guatemala
Variety: Caturra
Gård: El Rincón, Yolanda Galindo
Region: La Libertad, Huehuetenango
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1500-1700 meters above sea level.

Cupping notes:
Apricot, kiwi, grape. Complex with wonderful sweetness and a velvety body.

Expectation: Considering the notes mentioned by Puchero at the cupping, I will expect a complex and acidic coffee. I can imagine that this coffee will be very similar to coffee from Kenya. And for some reason, I assume that there will be a typical Nicaragua complexity.

2) KB Coffee Roasters, Paris, France.

Origin: Ethiopia
Variety: Mixed Heirloom
Gård: Chelelektu, Gedeo
Region: Kochere, Yirgacheffe
Process: Natural
Altitude: 2000-2200 meters above sea level.

Cupping notes:
Strawberry, cherry, floral and chocolate.

Expectation: This coffee sounds very similar to JB Kaffee’s coffee, which appeared in The Coffeevine September box. Something tells me that we can expect something slightly different, it will be fun exploring which tones that set them apart from each other. And as usual, I always welcome natural processed coffees. Of all three bags, this feels the least exciting, but hopefully, this can take me by surprise!

3) Ozone, London, England.

Origin: Ethiopia
Variety: Limu Heirloom
Gård: Kokola
Region: Agaro
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1975-2100 meters above sea level.

Cupping notes:
Lemon, grapefruit, pear, kiwi fruit.

Expectation: This seems to resemble Pucheros coffee, an acidic and sweet coffee. I genuinly think that this will be good! I can already imagine that this may have an aftertaste of tangerine or perhaps a nice pink lemonade feel over it.

Conclusion: There are two of three bags of coffee from Ethiopia. Of the two, Ozone sounds the most exciting. It may also be that KB Coffee Roasters is a coffee that I can drink every day, while Ozone is unforgettable and does not work very well with breakfast or dessert. At last, we have Puchero from Guatemala. Along with Ozone, this is the most exciting coffee in this Coffeevine box.

Of all of these three, I think that Puchero’s coffee from Guatemala will be the most thrilling and delicious coffee. And as usual, I base this on the type of bean, process and cupping notes.
