Ja, inderdaad: wij zijn koffiegek.
Al sinds 2003.

Dagelijks gaan we op zoek naar
betere koffiebonen en vernieuwende
zetmethoden. Vanuit onze liefde
voor de koffiebes als wonder
der natuur, met respect voor de
koffieteelt en voorname focus op
smaak, brengen wij de Specialty
Coffees naar u toe.

Onze bonen werden met
veel enthousiasme geselecteerd,
gebrand en verpakt.

Met bijgevoegd advies maak je
van ieder moment van de dag een
uitzonderlijke koffie-ervaring.
Veel genot!
Koffie zet je best met gefilterd water, net onder
het kookpunt.

Ratio press/filter: 60gr koffie / 1000gr water.

Aeropress: Geen speciaal advies.
Vele mogelijkheden; lukt altijd :-)

French Press: Grove maling. Na 4 min boven
laag aflepelen, press en drink.

Filter: Medium maling. Maak een kuiltje in de
koffie en schenk daarop een beetje water voor
1ste bloeming.
30 sec later het water in kleine cirkelvormige
bewegingen en met fijne waterstraal opschenken.
Schenk nooit aan de rand! 3 min extractie
is prima

Espresso: Ratio: 20 gr voor een diepe dubbele
filterbasket. Extra fijne maling.
Voor een dubbel shot van 4 à 6cl, al naargelang
persoonlijke smaak

Watertemperatuur al naargelang koffie en
voorkeur tussen 90° en 94°C
Extractie loopt < 20 sec maal fijner
Extractie > 35 sec maal groffer of doseer lager

New Rules on the Aeropress Championships

Author: Rob Berghmans

Ensuring your national Aeropress competition runs smoothy and successfully now means fulfilling the below guidelines. It is important that you are still able to stamp your own personality on the competition by interpreting the rules as you see fit, however it is equally important that there is a level of uniformity to the national competitions.
New to 2015
1. A lead time of 6 weeks is required. 
Venue, dates, times, poster and entrance information is required to be submitted to WAC headquarters to ensure sufficient time is given to willing competitors and that enough exposure if given to the event.
2. Poster
A poster must be produced which must include the logos of the global sponsors, the official WAC circuit logo and local sponsors. A high definition version must be submitted to WAC headquarters.
3. Partnering with local distributor
Engagement with the local Aeropress distributor is required, nothing is expected from the relationship apart from allowing the opportunity for the local distributor to be involved - the level of involvement is up to the organiser. The local distributor should looked to as a possible financial supporter of the event.
4. Fulfilling global sponsor requirements
Depending on your country and the relevance of the global sponsors in your region, certain conditions need to be met. Specifics of this will be released soon. It may include ensuring the grinder sponsors grinder is available or the cup sponsors cup is used throughout the competition.
5. The winner of the national competition must be flown to the WACs
Funds must be collected to ensure the winner of the national competition is able to travel to the WACs - this year the WACs will be held in Seattle during the SCAA in April, 2015. This is the responsibility of the local organiser.
6. Reporting & documentation of the event
A thorough report of the event must be completed. This should include a review of the events itself, the top 3 recipes must be submitted, a collection of photography (and video if possible) must be submitted, the names and workplaces of all competitors must be submitted. There will be an online form created to be submitted on completion of the national competition.
7. Agreement 
Signing the agreement form must be completed before the competition organisation begins. This is now in place as multiple local organisers have simultaneously approached WAC headquarters to run the event. To ensure a successful event is carried out - the above conditions need to be agreed to being met.
The above guidelines are in place to ensure a straight-forward and cohesive operation of all national competitions, as well as ensuring the provision of appropriate support to national winners. Our aim is not to be unduly strict, but to encourage and support interested parties to put on a great event. If you feel that your country has exceptional circumstances, please get in touch to discuss the potential for tailored conditions.
Details on the other rules and regulations for the competition can be found here.

Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Adado Grade 1 Washed

Author: Caffenation

We taste : very clean cup, chocolate, flowers, strawberry and a touch of liver.

Probably is Adado my favorite micro region within Yirgacheffe. Stone fruit, and lots of it, is the predominant flavour profile of the area. Apricots and peaches with supportive citrus and floral higher tones come together in a delightful cup.
These are the words of our friends from Cafe Imports, who has been dealing this fantastic coffee to us.
The plateau where they picked this coffee goes up to 2400 meters high!!!
The Adado Cooperative washing station in the southeastern Ethiopian highlands is one of the best in the country.
The people, living in the Gedeo Zone, south of the capital Addis Ababa, are considered to be a culturally and linguistically distinct group. They are bordered by the Sidama in the East, the Alaba in the North, the Burji in the West and the Guji in the South. All of these groups belong tot the Eastern Cushitic speaking poeple, who traditionally occupied the upper reaches of the Rift Valley escarpment in northern Sidamo. Today the Gedo Zone is one of the most densely populated parts of Ethiopia and the main production area for the world famous Yirgacheffe and Sidamo coffees.
I have to admit we beat you almost to death with another Ethiopian, but isn’t it so this year, they are all clean, fruity and very long lasting? This you won’t find anywhere else than in the bird cage of coffee, Ethiopia!
