Espresso Shantawene

The Shantawene is our new "natural" espresso from Ethiopia. Natural refers to coffees that are sun-dried as whole cherries after picking. This processing gives the beans a complex, fruity flavor profile with pronounced sweetness.

Shantawene is a sweet and fruity espresso that impresses with its intense and complex aromas. The fruity notes are reminiscent of ripe blueberries and strawberries. In the aftertaste, a creamy taste of milk chocolate comes to the fore.

Preparation tips!

The roast profile of Shantawene is adapted to all types of espresso preparation. We recommend it for preparation with the espresso machine, the espresso pot or the AeroPress. Due to the wonderful fruity notes, it is also very well suited as an iced espresso or cold brew.

We roast your coffee fresh every week

We roast the Shantawene in a gentle drum roasting process in our roastery in Berlin. Shantawene is roasted to a medium roast, so that it is very balanced. With great sensitivity, our roasters determine exactly the point at which the complex aromas of the green coffee unfold optimally. The roasting profile is individually composed by our roast masters depending on the characteristics of the coffees.

Unique espresso from passionate handcrafting

Shantawene is a community in the Bensa area, located in the Sidamo Zone in southern Ethiopia. Bensa is known for its floral, sweet and complex coffees and therefore the coffees here are among the best in the world. The washing station in Shantawene is situated at a very high altitude of 2,090m above sea level. Through the ideal combination of terroir, climate, the local coffee variety and passionate manual labour in the preparation, the Shantawene espresso develops its distinctive fruity taste.

After picking, the farmers carefully sort out the ripe red cherries to dry them on raised drying beds in the sun for several days. During this process, the sweetness of the coffee cherries is slowly absorbed into the beans. You can taste the result! Shantawene has an incomparably sweet taste that reminds us of ripe blueberries and strawberries – and sometimes even tropical fruits! It is a very multi-faceted espresso that changes and evolves in taste from the first sip to the last. Try it for yourself, close your eyes, and drink your espresso without milk and very slowly. What does the taste remind you of?

Lelit Elisabeth / Eureka Spezialita
93grad / 5 sec Preinfusion / 35sec Bezugsdauer / 18 g in 38ml out

Bereits der Erste Bezug mit 45 Sekunden war sehr lecker. Der dritte Schott war dann Perfect wie es der Röster beschrieben hat. Blaubeere und im Anhang direkt Schwarztee Aromen.

Muss man Probiert haben

Robert 17 Apr 2022

Schon beim Öffnen der Packung hat man das Gefühl, in einem Blaubeerfeld zu stehen. Hat man dann die Balance aus Fruchtaromen und angenehmer Säure gefunden, bekommt man einen extrem fruchtigen, komplexen Espresso. Am besten hat er mir geschmeckt, wenn er etwas abgekühlt war.
Sicherlich kein Schnäppchen, aber für diesen Kaffee würde ich sogar den täglichen Konsum zurückfahren.

WOW was für ein Geschmack !

Ich habe mir zum ersten mal einen guten Kaffee bestellt und bin erstaunt. Ich war irritiert als ich diesen Kaffee zum ersten mal probiert habe, denn sowohl der Geruch der Bohnen als auch der Geschmack erinnert wirklich sehr an Blaubeeren. Es war für mich irritierend, denn ich wusste garnicht das Kaffee so schmecken kann. Der Geschmack ist sehr fruchtig und hat eine leichte, erfrischende Säure. Diesen Kaffee muss man mal probiert haben.

Leckere Bohne!

Auch als Filterkaffee entfaltet die Bohne ihren milden angenehmen Geschmack. Ich schmecke viel Blaubeere heraus. Durch die dezent vorhandene Säure ist der Geschmack mit Milch allerdings nicht gut.

Ohne Milch top!

Favorite Coffee Circle coffee for espresso so far

I've been going through different offerings from Coffee Circle for espresso at home and this is my favorite so far. I think the acidity (rated 2 on this page) and strength (rated 4 on this page) are misleading. To my taste buds, this is the brightest, most evenly balanced "espresso roast" of theirs I've tried so far. It has a really nice fruit acidity that introduces complexity that doesn't exist in Sidamo (which is rated a 3 in acidity). The flavor is unique in a great way and leaves a light, pleasant aftertaste. It also makes a very nice crema straight out of the bag. I imagine this would make a very nice cup of pour over coffee, and versatility in a single offering is a bonus.

My preparation was 11.5g in, 25g out made with a La Pavoni hand lever machine with the group head starting at 85 degrees C.

Traumhaft fruchtig

Ich bin noch ziemlicher Anfänger was die Zubereitung angeht und gerade bei fruchtigeren Espressi war meine Erfolgsrate bisher eher mäßig. So landet statt einem süßlich prickelndem Espresso -Erlebnis doch mal schnell ein eher saures Gebräu in der Tasse. Doch dieser Espresso ist für mich der game changer, bisher war jeder Bezug mindestens gut bis zum richtigen Wow- Erlebnis. Ich schmecke eindeutig die fruchtigen Noten heraus, die mich an Blaubeere und Erdbeere erinnern. Exzellentes Produkt, Weiter so!

Unfassbar lecker

Unfassbar lecker!
Der Geruch ist schon ein Traum & dann erst der Geschmack.

Top: Fruchtig, rund, nicht zu aufdringlich

Wirklich ein top Espresso den ihr da gezaubert habt! Hatte auch mal euren Kerecha probiert, der war mir etwas zu wild im Vergleich. Diesen Espresso empfinde ich als rund, leicht samtig auf auf der Zunge, lecker fruchtig-beerig. Ich kann ihn wärmstes empfehlen.

Ich nutze die Rocket App. + Eureka Mühle.
