Since I’ve arrived in Amsterdam, I have been sampling coffees with more conscious attention than I had ever done before. I started grinding my own beans, and researching differences between coffee processing techniques. I’ve been visiting several different roasteries in Amsterdam, to talk with them and taste their coffees.

In this document I kept track of the coffee beans I have tasted and what my thoughts are about each and every one of them.


There is an extensive survey of all beans below, but to cut to the chase, here are the coffee beans I enjoyed most.

A survey of coffee beans

This is a comprehensive survey of coffees I bought and prepared over the period running from September 2021 to May 2022. I decided to stop updating this for every single bag of beans I bought, but I might come back to write about some special or noteworthy new coffees I taste in the future.
