Indipendent Coffee Reviews

Coffee reviews from a real coffee lover

My coffee reviews are independent, real and made following my personal feelings and sensations. I am trying to visit as many coffee shops and roasters as possible to try all their different coffee beans, learn more about their extraction procedures, the country of production, the quality of the coffee and to satisfy my personal taste.

I just share with you which are my favourite coffee and why.
