Lampung Coffee – Bus Patas brand – from Cibubur Market






One day, my Mom said that there is coffee sold at the Cibubur Market, near our home. She was not sure about the kind of coffee sold there, but the coffee is still in beans and will be grinded when we buy it. And then she offered if I wanted to taste the coffee. Well, Mom, off course, I want to.

A few days later, my Mom said that the coffee is ready. The coffee is from Lampung - Bus Patas brand. It came in three packs.

Why three packs? My Mom said that the coffee has three qualities, which is why it came in three different packs. It has first, second, and third quality. My Mom added that the coffee was grinded right in front of my Mom. So, the freshness is guaranteed, and nothing was added to the beans.

The coffee cupping was done at my friend's house.

The fragrance of the three kinds of this Lampung Coffee are different. The first quality of Lampung Coffee - Bus Patas brand has strong fragrance. So nice at my nose. The second quality of Lampung Coffee - Bus Patas brand has less fragrance compare to the first one. It is predictable that the third quality of Lampung Coffee - Bus Patas brand has no fragrance at all.

All qualities of this Lampung Coffee - Bus Patas brand is categorized as medium roasting as the color of the beans are dark brown.

It is time to drink the coffee. The one who prepared for the coffee was my friend's servant who always remembers that I really like black coffee. The first cups were wrong as she added sugar. Well, we should not use sugar when we conduct coffee cupping. The coffee should be black, no sugar and has been filtered, so we can taste the whole coffee, not the sugar.

The second cups were right. Three cups of coffee that represented three qualities of the coffee.

The color of the three qualities of the coffee was black. It is clear that the roasting method does not affect the color of the coffee in the cup.

The taste and the aroma of the coffee is the same with the fragrance of the coffee. The first quality of Lampung Coffee - Bus Patas brand has strong aroma and tastes so good. The taste was light and did not leave any mark as it ran through my throat. The second quality of Lampung Coffee - Bus Patas brand has less aroma and taste compare to the first one. Again, as we learned from the beginning, the third quality of Lampung Coffee - Bus Patas brand has no aroma and no taste.

But the cupping at my home found that the first quality of Lampung Coffee - Bus Patas brand tasted so bitter when sugar is added.

Overall, the quality of this coffee is good. Fresh and original. Nothing is added. The quality is the same with the taste. And yes, the price is cheap and friendly compare to the price of coffee at the supermarket and the café.

So, you wanna taste this Lampung Coffee - Bus Patas brand? I bet you do.


Happy cupping,
Astrid
