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

Mr LGB Summer of 14

Author: Rob Berghmans


Mr LGB Summer of 14

1/3 Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere Gr1
1/3 Costa Rica Tarrazu Monte Canet Estate
1/3 Kenya Kirinyaga Zahabu Peaberry
Mr LGB Summer is our Summer Espresso Blend for those who are looking for something clean, fruity or excellent with milk.
The first part is, again, a Yirgacheffe. This Kochere is picked southwest of the town of Yirga Cheffe and near a little village of Ch'elelek'tu in the Gedeo zone.
The plantation is situated around 2000 masl!
It's from various Heirloom Varientals.
Our volume on Kochere is relatively low, so possibly we will have another Ethiopian bean taking over by the end of August.

The second component is a yearly classic. And we're so fond of it that we bought the full European lot this year.
The coffee comes out of Costa Ricas' most famous region Tarrazu, more precisely San Marcos. The man running the farm is called Mario Solis.
This bean grows at an 1650 meter altitude and the variety is a mix of Caturra, Catuai and Geisha(!).
This coffee is a real espresso championship coffee; very well balanced, powerful, nice body and super clean.
Last washed bean is one from Kenya. First 2 beans are relatively low in acidity and therefor we needed something with more fruitiness and acidity to help cut through the milk.
We chose this Peaberry coffee from Cooperative Societies, Nyeri - Kirinyaga.
A very well balanced bean (SL 28/34) that makes the blend also suitable for filter brewing.

Don't hesitate to tell us what you think about this unique Seasonal Specialty Coffee Blend.

Panama Boquete Finca La Florentina

Author: Caffenation

Hints of Cocoa
Sweet cup
Medium body
Well balanced

Year after year we see brilliant coffees from the Boquete region.
For the new Panama crop, that’s just on the market, we picked one from the Paso Ancho Volcan Area. It’s a Caturra, Catuai, Typica mixture, fully washed and sun dried.

Finca La Florentina is a third-generation family coffee farm that over the years of its
existence has contributed much to the surrounding community – socially as well as
economically and ecologically. The senior Louis Martinz emigrated from Austria to
Panama three generations ago. He developed several animal and crop farms in the Volcán
region, including a coffee farm, La Florentina. The coffee from La Florentina was exported
to North America and around the world. The town started to grow around the farms and
Martinz contributed to its development by offering job opportunities and promoting local
production. He passed away in 1968, and while his meat and dairy operations ceased
production, the coffee operation remained active. Louis’ grandson now operates the farm.
