    CRU Kafe Organic Dark Roast review

    Origin: coffee from Peru, Indonesia and Ethiopia Intensity: 9 Buy: Order Organic Dark Roast at CRU Kafe , Order Organic Dark Roast at Amazon A multi-origin blend from CRU Kafe. Dark roasted, organic, Fairtrade and coming in 100% aluminium capsules. Brown foam. Malty and biscuit aroma, of a quite dark type. Sort of like an unsweetened toast. Medium body. Low acidity, as you’d expect from a dark roast. Bitterness prevails, with a pungent, nutty, aftertaste that is especially strong at lower temperatures. A coffee that leaves your mouth with its flavour even minutes after finished drinking it. Chocolate notes can be throughout the tasting felt, of a very, 90% cocoa…

    CRU Kafe Organic Espresso review

    Origin: an Arabica/Robusta blend of coffee from India, Honduras and Ethiopia Intensity: 11 Buy: Order Organic Espresso at CRU Kafe , Order Organic Espresso at Amazon A multi-origin blend of Indian Badra coffee, mixed with Honduras and Ethiopian beans. Organic, Fairtrade and 100% aluminium capsules. Brown foam. Malty aroma is predominant, quite strong. The aroma is alike a typical european café, dark and strong.

    Ethiopia review

    Origin: Ethiopian Arabica coffee. Intensity: 4 Bitterness: 2 Acidity: 4 Body: 2 Roasting: 2 Order: Buy Ethiopia capsules An easy cup, extremely light foam, thin even. Definitely a cereals/fruity smell. No acidity. Dense in the mouth, it fills it very well. Tends to linger on the back of the palate. Fruity flavours increase during the tasting, tending towards the orange blossom and ripe fruits.
