  • A Swedish Brewers Cup presentation 2017, Thomas Savage

    A couple of month ago our baristas competed in Brewers Cup and Barista competition. I generally encourage everyone at drop to compete, since I find competing questions what you do and why you do things, on a hands on practical level.

It's...

  • Kokkaffe - The Tias Kettle

    About the product The steaped coffee, or "kokkaffe" as we call it in Swedish, brewing method is one of the original brewing methods in the Scandinavian coffee culture.  We grew up with the coffee steeped on the stove, before the electronically filter coffee brewers got into more of the homes. However, it's still being used in many of the Scandinavian homes and is almost always the brewing method when camping or going out in the nature.  The iconic design has proved to be timeless in its appearance. In Os Table Ware redesign of this icon, they have worked meticulously to preserve its historic beauty...

Below is some general information about coffee production on Bolivia and an introduction of our producer called Sicafe belonging to Pedro Rodriguez and his daughter Daniela and son Pedro-Pablo. I have to start by saying that I have fallen in love with Bolivia, the people, the country and their coffee. Bolivia’s high altitude (the coffee growing altitude in Caranavi is 1500-2200 mail in Caranavi), the breath-taking nature, the coffee history, and the quality of the cup with its clear taste profile makes it a...
