I guess I count myself among that ever-growing group of people who make a fuss about the origin, altitude, process, roasting methods, delivery and eventual steeping and presentation of a few grams of coffee beans.
The same group of fickle, opinionated and scornful folk who spend more time complaining about coffee than they do enjoying it.
When we first moved to Berlin, it was hard to find a cafe that served the similar Italian, espresso style coffee that I'd become used to in Sydney, so, I was pretty excited to find a passionate coffee nerd running a first class cafe on my street, no less.
Before I had a full time job I would spend a large part of my day in Cafe CK on MarienburgerStra├če talking shit and stealing wireless. When my mum recently sent a bag of Campos beans for my birthday, the accommodating Cory Andreen of Cafe CK. (American Ex-pat and House DJ du jour) was good enough to whip us up a few espressos from his machine and so began a coffee swap-meet of sorts.
Today Cory hooked me up with 3 separate types of beans he picked up at the World Barista championships in London from roasters in Oslo, Gothenburg and London....complete with tasting notes.
