Green Bean Sourcing and Buying, Sample Roasting & Cupping

Green Bean Sourcing and Buying, Sample Roasting & Cupping

The Visit Coffee & Eatery

Zusammen mit Rehm & Co aus Hamburg rösten wir eine Auswahl an unterschiedlich aufbereiteten Specialty Coffees. Das Rösten von Kaffeeproben erfolgt auf einem sogenannten Sample Roaster (Proberöster). Jede Kaffeesorte benötigt unterschiedlich hohe Temperaturen und eine unterschiedlich lange Röstdauer, um das ideale Geschmacksprofil zu entwickeln. Gleichzeitig gibt Michael von Rehm & Co einen Einblick in die Arbeit eines Rohkaffeehändlers und das Proberösten auf dem Ikawa Sample Roaster.
Anschließend möchten wir gerne in einer Kaffeeverkostung (das sogenannte Cupping) die Besonderheiten von unterschiedlich aufbereiteten Kaffees präsentieren. In den Kaffee-Ursprungsländern wachsen verschiedenste Sorten von Kaffeepflanzen, sogenannte Varietäten. Je nach Terroir (Land, Höhe, Klima, Niederschlag und Boden) ändert sich Geschmack und Qualität jeder Varietät. Nach dem Anbau entscheidet aber vor allem auch die Aufbereitungsart über das finale Tassenprofil.
Im Rahmen des Cuppings möchten wir uns eine detaillierte Meinung über Geschmack und Qualität jedes Kaffees machen. Dabei versuchen wir so viele Facetten eines Kaffees wie möglich wahrzunehmen - von den Aromen über Art und Stärke der Säure, Bitterkeit, Süße, Klarheit bis hin zu Aspekten, die einen Kaffeeröster im Idealfall eine Kaufentscheidung treffen lassen - wie Wiedererkennungswert oder Komplexität.
Dabei möchten wir nicht nur Leute mit Vorwissen ansprechen, sondern jedem am Thema interessierten Gast die Möglichkeit geben, in entspanntem Ambiente und bei ein oder zwei Bieren in unseren Beruf hineinzuschnuppern.
