Aarhus have a lot of coffee bars. Starbucks, Baresso. Most cafe's serves a good cup. Surprisingly the gast station chain Statoil serves a surprisingly good cup. Also McDonalds and 7-11 serves very good coffee So it's not hard to find a good cup in my town. I am also a bit of coffeesnob myself, and like to make good coffee at home especially. To preserve my liver a bit a decided to include a couple of local coffee bars. I have no problem admitting that coffee bars is not my top knowledge, so I had to ask a colleague, who is a coffee geek, to recommend two good coffee bars.
La Cabra is the first. La Cabra means The Goat. It is a coffee bar I have often passed by as it is right next to Le Coq. It's coffee roasters and this cafe
From this list of 4 coffees I chose the Sumava, Ethiopia 416, Costa Rica. My guess is that Sumava is the producer (farmer), Ethiopia 416 the bean variety and Costa Rica the country of origin
What I got what this cup, with a coffee a lot paler than what is usually seen
And here is my first ever coffee tasting notes:
This coffee is very nutty flavoured. It actually is like a brown ale where normal black coffee is like a stout. I would guess the roasting is a lot lighter than normal coffee. So a lot less of that dark roast biter taste. My main tasting notes is citrus and nuts, and in the finish I get some bitterness and macaroons
This place has cozy relaxed background music.
It's open in the daytime, no alcohol served. Homemade light food breakfast and lunch

Would I recommend this place: Yes, but you need to be a coffee geek
