Shocking news, I still buy pre-roasted coffee.
There are roasters who have a flavour profile I enjoy, and others I don’t care for as much. Mostly I now have a a handle on what they are doing.
However, there are the alchemists and magicians. The roasters who I don’t even understand how they have achieved such complexity. The people I aspire to be as good as.
At the top of this list for me are Kudu in Greece. Having tried a good number of coffees from them, they never cease to surprise and delight. Balancing rich flavours, delicious, sweet body, and herbal complexity.
Who are your go to roasters when you want something special?
