Scandinavian coffee culture has been strong, passionate and deeply rooted in their culture for much longer than we think. The nordics simply love their cup of coffee, and they have some really great specialty coffee to offer to the world. Kaffeteriet is the place for a curated selection of fresh beans from some of Denmark’s top Micro Roasters.
Specialty Coffee from Denmark’s top Micro Roasters
If you are looking for a place to discover what the deep-rooted love of good filter coffee of the nordics has to offer, Kaffeteriet is offering a good selection of the best fresh roasted coffee in Denmark and the other Scandinavian countries. The nordic coffee culture is defined by very high quality beans and lighter roast profiles, that preserve the distinct natural characteristics of the coffee, so we expected the best no less from these coffees.
Micro roasted coffee is the highest quality type of coffee available. The processes used to create this type of coffee involves a very calculated process of roasting in small batches, ensuring a perfect roast and a unique richness of flavour.
But it is not only the roasting and the brewing that matter, but also where the coffee comes from. That way, we can fully enjoy the different flavours as a result of different origins, climates or how the beans have been processed.
We are delighted to have experienced a cup of well-crafted filter coffee from three of Denmark’s top Micro Roasters: Coffee Collective, Holy Bean and Kaffe Mekka and share thoughts about our experience with you.
But most importantly, micro coffee roasters build a special relationship with the farmers that they collaborate with. They care not only about the final product -premium quality coffee beans- but also about the coffee farmers. Through direct communication and transparency they ensure that the coffee producers receive a fair price, and therefore better living conditions which is very important for the coffee producing countries, as well as for for the clients, who get to enjoy a coffee of great quality.
Coffee Collective Finca Vista Hermosa Guatemala
“Balanced and sweet with good body. Chocolate, plumbs and roasted hazelnuts.” We loved the sweet flavoured nuances and medium body of this coffee. With a beautifully sweet and rich flavour, chocolaty overtones and subtle aromatics. It is a great coffee we loved to drink cool as well, with a sweet and crisp taste.
Holy Bean Honduras Comsa
“A very pleasant coffee, which has the typical characteristics of a coffee from Honduras: very balanced and with a lovely interplay between the sour and the sweet. With soft peach and caramel tasting notes.” A complex coffee, sweet and mild, with a lively and bright acidity and a soft velvet body. The citrus and peach flavours certainly make this coffee a vibrant drink which made it one of our favourites.
Holy Bean Burundi Gasura
“A coffee with really fine flavours and an unusual delicious caramel sweetness that continues to hang in the palate.” With intense, orange peel and caramel tasting notes.” Crispy, juicy and soft citrus acidity in the mouth with rounded caramel and orange flavours, dense and creamy in cup. We especially loved the aromatic of this coffee once cooled.
Kaffe Mekka Guatemala Finca Ceylan Organic
“Central American coffee with velvety chocolate flavor, combined with light vanilla and citrus notes. The coffee is certified organic.” Last but not least, we irremediably fell in love with this amazing organic coffee. It makes a consistent cup, with a well rounded flavour and strong chocolate and vanilla notes, perfectly complemented by the subtle citrus tones. Once cooled down, it has a clean and pleasantly smooth taste.
