Spoznajte pražarno meseca avgusta!

-

Bratislava, glavno mesto Slovaške, velja za sorazmerno nepoznano prestolnico, vendar vsak, ki jo obišče, je začaran z njenim starim mestnim jedrom z ozkimi uličicami in dih jemajočo arhitekturo. Skoraj vsak tretji lokal v tem starem delu je kavarna in nemalo njih streže specialty kavo. V enem takih kavarn boste našli Erika…

 

 

Erik Šimšík je prvič obiskal Ruando leta 2012, ko je bil tam preživel štiri mesece kot študent sociologije iz Slovaške. Med obiskom je prvič okusil kavo, pridelano na eni izmed farm. Ta trenutek je spremenil njegov pogled na kavo. Kava je bila iskriva, citrusna, nič takega še ni okusil v svojem življenju. In to je zaznamovalo tudi njegovo poslovno pot.

-

Leto kasneje je ideja bila jasna. Pripeljati to kavo iz Ruande na Slovaško in jo tam prodajati. Ko je razmišljal o imenu svojega podjetja, se je odločil pokloniti eni od veličastnih živali iz Ruande, ogroženi sorti visokogorskih goril. Odtod ime Goriffee.

-

Erik je bil v Ruandi že štirikrat, obiskal centralno in vzhodno Afriko, letos tudi v Kostariki in Panami, vse z namenom utrditi vezi med proizvajalci in dobavitelji, vendar se zaveda velikih logističnih in finančnih ovir, ki jih tak poslovni model predstavlja za tako majhen tim kot so Goriffee.

 

 

Ta mesec boste lahko okusili tri različne kave, ki jih bodo za vas spražili Erik, Lukas in Amir iz bratislavske pražarne Goriffee. Ena izmed kav bo odlična Huye Mountain iz Ruande! Predstavljajte si sladkobo fige, namočene v rum, vse skupaj prežeto z jagodami! Gre za naravno obdelano kavo, pridelano na nadmorski višini 1900m v hribovitih predelih Ruande! Več o tej kavi kmalu!

Če še niste naš naročnik, se naročite na www.jumpinggoat.eu do 31.8., če želite prejeti kave pražarne Goriffee v prvi polovici septembra!

Izkusite ljubezen na prvi požirek!

 

 Meet Goriffee! A rising star roastery from Bratislava!

 

Slovakia’s capital Bratislava still flies somewhat under the radar, but anyone who visits will be enchanted by its beautiful old town with narrow alleys and stunning architecture. Almost every third shop in old town Bratislava is a coffee house, with a fair amount of them serving specialty coffee. There are more than 150 cafés only in the historic center! In one of them you will find Erik…

 

Erik Šimšík visited Rwanda for the first time in 2012. He was a fresh graduate of sociology from Slovakia who arrived in Rwanda for a 4-month volunteering assignment. During his visit, he got to taste his first cup of delicious Rwandan coffee at a coffee farm. That moment was about to set a new trajectory for his career—the coffee was nothing like he tasted before. It was bright and citrusy, and it made him rethink his career plans.

 

 

A year later, upon his return to Rwanda, Erik had already formed an idea in his head. He wanted to bring Rwandan coffee directly to Slovakia and sell it there. Thinking about the right name for his business, he decided to pay tribute to the majestic symbol of Rwanda’s natural heritage, the endangered mountain gorillas, and the product he fell in love with, Rwandan coffee. It led to the name Goriffee.

 

Erik has been to Rwanda four times so far, he has explored Central and East Africa and plans to visit Panama and Costa Rica in 2019. Even though his aim has always been to build long-term partnerships and he started with directly-bought coffees, he is now aware of the economic and logistical limitations of the model.

 

 

This month you will be able to taste the fine coffees roasted by Erik, Lukas and Amir from the Goriffee team. One of three different coffees will be the really tasty Huye Mountain from Rwanda. Imagine the sweetness of figs, soaked in rum with strawberries all over! It is a naturally processed coffee, harvested at 1900 masl in the mountains of Rwanda!

Experience love at first sip!
