Our first Gems edition of 2022 will see us teaming up with Fuglen from Oslo in Norway. This beacon of specialty coffee has been on our radar for a long time and recent conversations with head roaster Ludvik Bonna Hopstock eventually led us to this.
Fuglen is one of Europe’s longest running coffee brands and has been at the forefront of specialty coffee for many decades. Apart from its synonymous Norwegian operations, there is also a Japanese branch that is highly regarded. It’s a real thrill to have Fuglen as our Gems roaster for this upcoming edition.
Following four Panama Geishas that we picked for the first four Gems editions, this one will feature a Costa Rican Geisha from producer Omar Calderon who is based in Tarrazu and runs his coffee farm together with his wife and four daughters.
This coffee comes with a yellow-honey process, meaning that 50-75% of the mucilage was removed from the beans before drying, giving it a clear and decidedly fruity cup profile with notes of orange blossom, black pepper and papaya.
