Last month Sabado Coffee Club took place at a new cafe called Kaffa Bean Cafe, it’s based in Silicon Oasis, Dubai. We had another good selection supplied by some of the finest roasters from around the world. and when we finally picked our favourite coffee on the table – we had a dead heat between Has Bean and Counter Culture, but on the final count Counter culture won with a stunning coffee from Ethiopia.
Here’s what they say about the coffee…
Haru Single-Farmer Lot
Down the road from the Haru Cooperative in Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia, Olke Birre owns and manages about 12-hectares of land. Olke was one of the first farmers in all of Yirgacheffe to build his own mini-washing station, which gave him the ability to completely control the processing of his coffee. With this control—and his dedication to producing the best coffee possible—Olke and his family have created a coffee that is simply elegant. Look for clear flavors of citrus, peach, and jasmine.
The Kaffa Bean Team brewed up our winning coffee through the Chemex for everyone to enjoy. yum.
If you haven’t visited Sabado before – the club is held on the first Saturday of the month and is hosted by a different café space each time. Sabado Coffee Club presents fascinating coffees by interesting roasters which are brewed to taste. We then collect the votes to find the favourite and we make a filter brew of the winner. Simple.
January’s Sabado Coffee Club isn’t going to meet because most people will be feeling a little blurry eyed from seeing in the new year so instead, we are proud to announce that the next Sabado will take place on the 27th February at The Dubai Coffee Museum 12pm. come down – no registration is needed – you just need to turn up.
Yes, I know, it’s not the first saturday of the month but we have coincided with The Gulf Food show 2016 and this Sabado promises to be lots of fun – We will have many of the worlds coffee community attending and of course – some superb coffees too. So until February, have a brilliant 2016.
See you at the Coffee Museum!
