  • Bolivia 2016

    This week we have released three coffees from Bolivia.

However the two superheroes for Bolivian specialty coffee is our exporter and producers Pedro and Daniela Rodriguez. Daniela and Pedro Rodriguez Our goal is just to get a tastier cup of coffee, but if we can do this and make a positive impact its a win-win situation.

  • Roasting Philosophy, Nordic Roasters Forum

    Figured we hadn't posted the video from the Nordic Roaster Forum November 2015 in Copenhagen just yet. The talk is not perfect at all, however it sums up alot about our roasting philosophy.  As said in the beginning, knowledge in coffee roasting is developing so quickly and all we can promise year after year is that we're consistently trying to create a better cup of coffee.  Giving this talk, we did not yet have a reader for exhausted temperature and currently we're looking into consistent airflow. However, the philosophy is staying the same: a coffee with a clear taste profile with a lot...

  • 4th in the World Coffee Roasting Championship 2016, Shanghai

    I just placed forth in the World Coffee Roasting Championship in Shanghai, China.  Placing third in the world in the world in 2014 (Rimini) and second in the world 2015 (Gothenburg) the expectations were very high. However, this is nothing we're disappointed in at all. This is actually the best competition I've done so far. I was super happy with how I presented the single (Panama), reminding of strawberry lemonade and citric. The blend I created with 80% Santuario from Cauca since it simply was stunning; vibrant, juicy and a surgery sweetness. For the rest of the blend I was using...

  • Espresso guidelines

    At Drop Coffee Roasters we choose to highlight each individual coffee and its characteristics as good as we can, be it for espresso or filter; for us espresso is simply another way of extracting flavour from coffee. The first step in brewing any cup of coffee is to decide on the brew ratio, coffee in relation to water. For espresso, we usually dose based on basket size, for us this is generally 18g VST filter baskets, altering only slightly in order to optimize head space above the coffee grounds, and aim in most cases for a 1/2 ratio, altering the...
