Tasting Sloane Coffee Roastery

Last week we tasted coffees roasted by Sloane Coffee Roastery in Bucharest, Romania. The roasters of the month of March, our new series introducing European roasters, sent us a beautiful coffee box. We were excited to brew their El Salvadorian sample and to really get the end-user experience, opening the coffee box at our office.

The coffees were sent in a white, sleek and clean Sloane-branded box, designed the same way as their retail coffee bags. In it, there were 3 200g bags of coffee, from El Salvador, Guatemala and Costa Rica, accompanied by a recipe to follow. Learn more about those below and watch our video for further details from our brewing session.

Other coffees in the tasting box

We received also Guatemalan from Finca Villaure, from the region of Huehuetenango. This bourbon variety was grown at 1650 m a.s.l. and was fully washed. Costa Rican Don Eli was an example from Terrazu region, a catuai variety grown at 1900 m a.s.l., processed as white honey.

This really was just a little teaser of what we can expect from Sloane Coffee Roasters. Do not hesitate to pop over to their Instagram and Facebook for further info.
