    CRU Kafe Organic Intense Roast review

    Origin: coffee from India and Indonesia (Sumatra) Intensity: 11 Buy: Order Organic Intense Roast at CRU Kafe , Order Organic Intense Roast at Amazon An Arabica and Robust multi-origin blend from Sumatran and Indian coffee. Organic, Fairtrade and 100% aluminium capsules. Brown foam. Strong aroma, of cereals with a component of smokiness. Very noticeable. At first taste it’s not bitter at all, lightly acidic, medium body. The smokiness is predominant, with a subtle, molasses-like, sweetness. A coffee that definitely can remind you of a whisky, not a Bourbon but a not very peaty Scotch. At lower temperatures the sweetness assumes a more liquorice aspect, with acidity becoming more upfront. With…

    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…

    Indonesia review

    Origin: wet-hulled Arabica coffee from Sumatra and Java. Intensity: 8 Bitterness: 3 Acidity: 2 Body: 4 Roasting: 4 Order: Buy Indonesia capsules An awesome mix of the strong aspects of the India’s capsule with a more gentle flavour coming from the island of Java. A Master Origin capsule from 2018. Brown foam. Sweet, fragrant aroma. Thick, somewhat bitter, tobacco-like, crema. A medium-dark roast. Cereal notes at first, medium dry. Quite acidic. More subtle notes appear further into the tasting, and bitterness subsides. Tastes really bland as a lungo though, stick with espresso/ristretto quantities. Overall a smooth cup, with tobacco and cereals flavours over an acidic and bitter base.
