I can’t think of a better way to kick off 2019 than checking out some new (to me) products from one of my favorite Italian coffee companies, Caffè Pascucci Torrefazione. I’ve had an eye on these babies for a long time, and finally got around to purchasing them. They will be opened one after another in January and reviewed separatery.
Another favorite coffee company of mine is Cafetoria Roastery from Lohja, Finland. They produce some of the highest quality coffees I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying. In my opinion, everyone should get to know them. Their products will be covered extensively.
I’m also planning on visiting two local artisan roasteries, whose products have received rave reviews not only here in Finland, but also internationally. It will be exciting to see what the hype is all about.
Also, and on a slightly different note, I’ve gotten several requests to give my opinion on some widely available grocery store coffees. So, in addition to reviewing higher quality products, I will be comparing a couple of inexpensive blends from the German supermarket chain Lidl, some of which are actually surprisingly OK for the price.
That’s just the beginning! If I can figure out a way to cover the high international shipping costs, I’ll also be looking at products from a couple of very interesting American roasteries.
Let’s go! Happy New Year!
