Good Coffee to start the day

This afternoon I will give the presentation of my thesis at the company I researched. It’s going to be an exciting yet thrilling day. After my oatmeal breakfast I decided to start the day with coffee. Here in Groningen my absolute favorite coffeeshop is Black&Bloom. No not that kind of coffeeshop the Netherlands is famous of, they just serve coffee.

The Menu

Today I picked the Kenya Nyeri Kii. This coffee is from Caffènation in Antwerpen. It’s lightly roasted coffee made with an aeropress. The taste notes are fruity, clean aroma, chocolate and spicy notes. The coffee is served at 80-90 degrees celcius but the taste gets better and fruitier after it cools down a bit.

Black and Bloom is the first artisan espressobar in Groningen. They serve coffee from all over the world, roasted by the best roasters in Europe. I really like the laid back atmosphere in Black and Bloom. You can lounge on the couch, work on school projects at a table or have business meetings.

Fun fact! All the baking goods are home made by the owners wife and even though I haven’t tried all of them yet, the ones I tried are delicious and so original. They vary from brownies to peanutbutter’n’jelly amazeballs. A peanut butter cake with jelly inside. If you’re ever planning to visit Groningen I definitaly recommend to try this coffeeshop.  My favorite the ‘Malteser cheesecake’ and favorite drink besides coffee? Absolutely the ‘Cold drip ‘n’ Ginger Ale’. This cold drip is a coffee elixer made in the Yama coffee dripper. It takes about 10 hours to make an elixer from filter coffee. It’s mixed with Ginger Ale, ice and fresh mint leaves. I can’t think of a better way to start a busy day!
