I’m not a coffee fan, I don’t need to have my morning coffee to wake up but ever since I moved to my new house and got a brewing coffee machine, I’ve enjoyed experimenting with different types of coffee beans. I also got a Nespresso and a Barista machine which I try from time to time as well, especially when I have friends or guests who are coffee enthusiasts. Needless to say, I still don’t know much about coffee and Starbucks is always a safe choice for me when it comes to coffee, but I’ll eventually get there one day and businesses like Kaleicoffee.com are supposed to make it easier for me.
Kaleicoffee is a Lebanese specialty coffee company that gathers some of the best coffee beans from around the world, fly them home and roast them in small batches to ensure their coffee is always the freshest. Their aim is to provide coffee lovers in Lebanon with high-quality coffee and facilitate the delivery process through an online platform (and offline outlets). I was telling a friend, who’s a long-time coffee enthusiast, about Kaleicoffee and he was surprised that third wave coffee movement is picking up in Lebanon and loved the website.
Third wave coffee has been trending for quite some time in the world and “refers to a current movement to produce high-quality coffee, and consider coffee as an artisanal foodstuff, like wine, rather than a commodity”. Of course it’s more expensive as it focuses on things like artisanal and micro roastings, but it’s still affordable and worth a try.
Kaleicoffee is mainly for coffee enthusiasts but if you’re like me and wish to learn more about coffee, then you will find the website and the people behind it very helpful. I first met with them in Faqra as they had a stand during the summer festival and were about to launch kaleicoffee.com. I got to try their iced coffee rum drink with a delicious pecan pie slice.
Kaleicoffee is currently offering two kinds of Ethioipan coffee, Yirgacheffe and Limu Organic. You can order online (or buy from selected oulets like Aziz) and choose the grind level (beans, coarse, medium, medium fine, fine, extra fine). They also sell hardware from Japanese Bamboo utensils, paper bags, ceramic poor-over and others.
