Third Wave Wichteln 2017 Update

Ho ho ho! I was (trying to be) a good girl this year and apparently I got lucky, as the coffee Third Wave Wichteln Santa came to me some days ago. And I’m sorry to ruin your childhood dreams… Santa is German. And she’s a girl.

This is what I got from Anna.

Hanuta – a taste of childhood.

I can clearly recall the taste of Hanuta. Oh sweet memories of getting it from my grandparents. When my little brother and I got one, it was usually for special occasions like Christmas or birthdays. And the we ate it with small bites, enjoying every tiny crumble. I know for some of you it might not be anything but a waffle with chocolate filling, but hey – it tastes like special childhood moments for me.


It is the first time I got to taste coffee from jb roasters, and no surprise surprise, they are delicious! Ethiopia Yirgachefe Kochere (washed), juicy, though not too juicy – more of a sweet ones. I asked baristas at Coffeedesk to grind them so I could brew them as drip coffee. I guess a proper grinder will be my next Christmas wish… 😉

Tote bag & postcard

All of the commodities were packed in a nice tote bag with a big I <3 ULM on the frontside. Additionally, Anna added a postcard from her hometown with some wishes written down – I really appreciate this personal approach. And wupti – I can still believe in Santa! Now deal with it all of you doubtful adults, you lost!
