Every Coffee Bag I've Emptied in 2019 - Part 1

Now, hear me out - I know I promised this blogpost as a YouTube video, however, a lot has happened in the last month and even though it was filmed, when I transferred the files, they corrupted (yes, you are correct I cried a lot about it)
So instead of putting myself through the hell that was filming it again (it was going to be an hour long!!) I'm going to split it into 3 separate blog posts on here, then it gives you the option to look at the overview image and read about the coffees you want to know if I enjoyed rather than trawling through one huge blog post (and don't worry, YouTube is coming!!)


So onto, Every Coffee Bag I've Emptied In 2019 - Part 1. 
(*part 2 and 3 linked at the bottom of the post)






2019 was filled with some INCREDIBLE coffees, I feel I found my mojo for the direction of The Coffee Life, which is great. 

We'll start from the top of the picture and work our way down - I must also say that there is one company that isn't pictured because I turned their tins into new little plant pots for my houseplants, however shout out to Good Beans over in Amsterdam for creating some absolutely incredible coffee (and I hope to put up a blog post about them soon!)



Untold Coffee 
I've raved about Untold a lot in 2019, and it's incredible to see the growth they've had, and everything they're doing environmentally for coffee
In part 2, they will be a heavy feature from their subscription service they used to have. 

Pictured above
1. Danilo Barbosa - Minas Gerais, Brazil (there are actually 2 tins of this scrummy one, but one of them is currently a home for one of my plants)
2. Jeremy Abadi  - Valle del Cauca, Colombia - Washed and Extended Fermentation
3. Jeremy Abadi - Valle del Cauca, Colombia - Washed





Craft House Coffee - Colombia, El Muro 

Fried Hats x Oatly - I picked this cool looking coffee up from Amsterdam Coffee Festival last year, it was super delicious through espresso




Bad Hand - Rwanda 
I love, love, love Bad Hand, they're super local to me as well which is a huge bonus! 


Hasbean
1. Alauela, Western Valley - Costa Rica 
2. Muranga - Kenya 
Now, every time I get a bag of Hasbean coffee, I always drink it too fast to ever do a blogpost about them, 2020 goal is to actually blog about them, because they're bloody fantastic.


Roundhill - Uraga Saii, Ethiopia




Bailies - La Ortiga, Costa Rica
Nearly a year later I'm still shocked I managed to get 1 of the 10 bags released of this coffee, it was INCREDIBLE.


Taylor Street - Ethiopia Hambela
This was absolutely incredible, especially through cold brew 


Red Roaster Coffee - Kinini Washing Station, Rwanda 





The Roasting Party - Costa Rica Jaguar Honey 
My absolute favourite from The Roasting Party!

Blue Bottle Coffee - Women of Kinyovu Station, Burundi 
I never did a blog post on this one, and I cant quite remember why, it was absolutely delicious and I cant wait to try more from Blue Bottle!

Boy, I'd heard good things about TGITC coffee, but this was amazing! It was featured in the Women of coffee One Click Box
