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

Roast ED : New Bags, New Talk

Author: Rob Berghmans


Full city Roast - Strong - Nutty - Medium to Low Acidity

"Espresso blend with a lot of Character". What does this mean?
This coffee is a crowd pleaser. With mixed washed and unwashed (natural processed) beans, this coffee is more easy going and less acidic then most of our other coffees.
The roasting is a tad darker, but still light enough to keep all flavors trapped inside the bean.
The ingredients (mostly 4 different beans) change over time, although the general taste of the blend will stay stable. Our favorite origins for this blend are Ethiopia, Colombia and Brazil.

It fits very well for small or large espresso's and the Bialetti/Mokka Pot.

Our average buying price - green/unroasted coffee - for the ED is €4,7 a kilo.

We have special prices for professionals in Belgium or abroad. Mail us for conditions.

El Salvador Ilamatepec Finca Fatima

Author: Caffenation

Carmen Duch Martínez comes from a very traditional coffee growing background. She and her two brothers are deeply rooted in coffee; all of them learned from his father this dignifying profession, he himself learning it from his ancestor.

Fátima is located almost at the top of the Santa Ana Volcano, also known as Ilamatepec which in Nahuatl means “father hill”, as the native indigenous believed that this volcano watched over the crops growing amongst his hillsides. This belief has proved itself right, for this area has been widely recognized as one of the most important sources of extremely high quality coffees along the history of El Salvador. 

Located above 1,400 masl, Fatima has been awarded several times during El Salvador CoE history, appearing for the first time as a winner in 2004, ranking 6th, and then 16th on 2006 moving to the 3rd place this year with 89.86 points.

Like most of El Salvador’s coffee landscapes, this farm has a very diverse shade canopy which hosts many native and migratory birds, filling the environment with a pleasant exhibition of Mother Nature. The variety found on this farm is the traditional Bourbon with some Typica trees remaining.

Carmen works hand to hand with her brothers Rafael and Juan, who oversee the cultural practices developed at the family´s farms. They are very close and run their farms as a family tradition and business. They believe in high quality coffee versus high yielding production, so they avoid the use of chemicals and fertilizers letting the farm relax as it produces the bright red fruit. All the works are done by skillful hand labor, the pruning of the shade done by appreciation.
