Quite a special cupping
Filed under In the Cupping Room
We cupped some absolutely amazing coffee today, and despite about one thousand things happening, I still can't get my mind away from the flavour of cup #8.
As a roaster I have a very disagreeable tendency to quickly evaluate the quality of the roast before evaluating the quality of the coffee itself. The cup I tasted today had me bamboozled - it's complexity, sweetness, vibrancy and distinction on the table. One of my first thoughts while tasting it was "Wow this coffee was lucky to find Tim Wendelboe". This coffee was called Tekangu, from Kenya.
Bigging-up roasters for coffee is a bit of a faux pas, but it is actually very rare to taste really well roasted coffee. And, thank you Tim Varney, this was exquisitely roasted.
Tim Wendleboe (the cafe and roastery) is based in Olso, Norway. Their coffee is available from various cafes around Norway, their webshop, and their their espresso bar.
