While I would always recommend supporting your local roasters, it’s fun to try something new now and then. It’s a common misconception that dark coffee = good coffee, but in the speciality coffee world there tends to be a preference for lighter roasts. Find out what you like best – there is no right or wrong. Here are some of my favorite roasters to explore:
Coffee Collective – Denmark
Prolog – Denmark
Frukt – Finland
Koppi – Sweden
Tim Wendelboe – Norway
The Barn – Germany
Manhattan Coffee Roasters – Netherlands
DAK Coffee Roasters - Netherlands
Nomad Coffee – Spain
Workshop Coffee – UK
You grind your own beans, right? The Niche Zero is a very popular single dosing grinder, meaning you weigh your beans before dumping them into the grinder instead of having your beans sit in a hopper beforehand and weigh the output. The “Zero” in the name comes from the zero retention of coffee grounds left in the machine after grinding.
