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.
