Coffee inspires creativity—this is merely an overflow of that. A bit of my coffee journey in the form of doodles and sketches.

I’m typically not all that impressed with Guatemalan coffees—not that I don’t think they’re good, I just don’t find many that stand out (Kuma also put out a great Guatemala over the summer).

This Guatemala Hunapu from Sweden’s Koppi breaks the trend. It’s a beautifully sweet coffee that leaves its mark with a deep berry finish (gooseberry, to be precise).

I’m really impressed with Koppi’s new packaging and the great card that comes with it, featuring their most recent t-shirt design.
I’ll be taking this coffee, a Porlex grinder, and an Aeropress when I head to the Austrian Alps tomorrow.

Be sure to head over to Koppi’s newly designed website, and check out these posts for some great pictures of their space in Helsingborg (DCILY & Aaron Frey).

I received a nice surprise in the mail yesterday—all the way from Stockholm, Sweden. Drop Coffee, based in Stockholm sent a couple bags of their latest offerings. One of which was an El Salvador from Finca Malacara. This is an extremely unique coffee based on my limited experience. I tried it in an aeropress, and it came out with an interesting mix of sweet acidity and nuttiness that reminded me of Kuma’s Tano Batak. The coffee has an aroma that reminds me a ton of rum extract.

I really enjoyed my coffee this morning, and I want to say thank you to the guys and gals at Drop for making my day. I’ve only had coffee from two roasters in Sweden—Koppi and Drop—but I’ve been extremely impressed with that they’re doing. Can’t wait to make having their coffee on hand a more regular thing next year—hopefully its easy to have coffees shipped throughout Europe.

One of the biggest inspirations for my doodle project, and one of the many catalysts for my renewed love of coffee was the site Dear Coffee, I Love You.

Through this site, I’ve learned about a lot of great roasters from around the world. One of these roasters is Koppi, based out of Helsingborg, Sweden.

I’ve been anxious to try coffee from Koppi for some time – thanks to the kindness of both Anne Lunell of Koppi, and Brian Jones of DCILY, I was able to. A huge thanks to both of them for being willing to send this my way. It’s almost time for fika in Ohio!
