The Coffee I Serve at Forloren Espresso

I serve coffee from Drop Coffee Roasters (Sweden) and The Coffee Collective (Denmark).

Both micro roasters have received a lot of well deserved positive press in the past year(s).

I serve a variety of Drop's brilliant coffees prepared in Kalita Wave, and will soon also have one on the Espresso menu.

From Coffee Collective, I have chosen Daterra Sweet Collection for espresso due to the amazing way TCC have chosen to roast it; sweet and nutty with low acidity and yet modern and refreshing.
Finally I have chosen their Kieni from Nyeri, Kenya, also brewed in Kalita Wave - one of the most delicious fruity coffees I know.
If you come by on hot day, I can recommend Kieni brewed on ice!

Saturday was a beautiful day, and around noon, I was finally convinced it was ready for customers.
Here's a video of the shop a few minutes before I removed the "opening soon" sign from the door:

Going forward, you can see the opening hours from the link at the bottom of the homepage.

Almost there....

Excuse the mess :) A few days ago Alex Skovgaard (Coffee Solution) connected the NS machine to the BWT RO system, and I can now finally calibrate the machine settings & grinders, and fine tune the workspace layout.
Prior to that, Peter Danker (Jesper SjĂžberg VVS) and the BWT guys used the better part of a day to direct the water to the right outlets, which is not as simple as it may sound: Not all water needs to be mineralised, but water right out of the RO is slightly acidic, thus some of the tubing must be made from costly corrosion resistant materials. I also required a redundant system, allowing traditional filtering in case the RO system becomes inoperative.

I have put up a few things on the shelves to see how they look.
