  • Third best roaster in the world and how to become even better

    This was the first year that the World Coffee Roasting Championship was organized in Sweden and I, Joanna, was proud to take home the prize, considering the many great roasters competing. Among those was my great friend, Christian Gullbrandsson, from daMatteo, who came third and who I brought along as coach to the the world championship.  The world championships were held in Rimini, Italy, and lasted for three days, the first of which was about analysing raw coffee (picking out defects and categorizing these, measure moisture and degree of colour of the green and roasted coffee) and sample roasting the...

  • Hunkute, Sidama, Ethiopia

    Vårt andra kaffe från årets skörd i Etiopien kommer från Dalle regionen i Sidama. Sidama är en del av området Sidamo, som är välkänd för sina saftiga kaffen med komplexa aromer. På kooperativet och processtaionen Hunkute processas och torkas kaffet noggrant för att ge den renaste möjliga koppen, bland de renaste som vi har smakat från Etiopien. Hunkute är beläget på 2000 meters höjd i de höga bergen där kaffebären växer, samlas kaffet in och processas enligt den högsta kvalitén som Etiopien är kapabel av idag. Den höga höjden hjälper kaffet att utveckla sin komplexitet och förstärker även dess naturliga...

  • The international coffee day and our work for a more sustainable trade

    Coffee is one of the most important products in the world and the second most traded legal product after oil. The price we pay for the coffee affects thousands of people and their life. At Drop Coffee we choose to pay more for a higher quality. That will lead to a more sustainable production - both social and economical - specially for the producers. We know that when the people that produces the coffee, no matter how small their farm is, can invest in their production and not only survive from it, the world is a bit better and a...

  • Wote and strawberries

    Took some time off, midsummer celebration all over sweden. Wedding fever both for me and the royal princess. What Chris and Madde missed out on was a Ethiopian washed typica variety called Wote. At the White Guide I got some questions from a reporter. She asked me what the next coffee trend was? I think I found that out this weekend, combine desserts and coffee. Wote and strawberries to be precise.  Then response from my friends and loved ones when we tried this floral bomb with the first fresh strawberries was amazing. People could sometime have a hard time to find sweetness and...
