Apricot & macadamia

Sold out. A classic and delicious coffee from Hugo Guarnizo in the Tarqui region of Colombia. This coffee was harvested during the fly crop.

Tarqui is in the Central Cordillera of the Andes Mountains, with coffee growing in altitudes up to 2000 masl, and with rich and varied micro climates. In the northern part the main harvest is in July-August and the mitaka or mid-harvest is in November-December. In the southern parts this is reversed. This means it is possible to have fresh coffee in from Tarqui all year. The farmers are small, having 1-3 hectares each, and are often organized in groups. We have two major producer groups of 10-20 farmers that we work with, as well as individual producers in different areas.

Hugo Guarnizo has a farm called Miraflores in the hamlet of El Libano in the departement of Tarqui in central Huila. He is one out of several cousins and siblings with farms in the area. El Libano was the first small local community Nordic Approach visited in Tarqui. They visited the place and producers because we saw several coffees with great potential on the cupping table. The vibe and community feel there was great. The farmers really supported and helped each other to improve their products. The coffee is processed at the micro mill at the farm. The cherries are pulped and fermented in small concrete tanks, washed and rinsed before it’s dried in small ventilated parabolic dryers.

  • Nectarine & Dark Chocolate

    We taste 80% dark chocolate and stone fruit, specifically nectarine, along with some creamy & bitter walnut.

  • Hazelnut & Mandarin

    Creamy chocolate, thick and rich with super sweet mandarin and stone fruit.

  • Jasmine & peach

    Peaches & cream, in the way only an Ethiopian coffee can bring you all of the peaches and cream. Jasmine flowers and intricate bitters that stimulate your senses to finish it off. We’ve immensely enjoyed coffee from the Boji wet mill in the Kochere region on multiple occasions and are thrilled to bring it back for another run.

  • Roasted walnut & grape

    This coffee is technically a blend, but it’s not your average blend. By purchasing this coffee, you are directly supporting 15 small coffee pickers. You are supporting fair pay, legal and safe health care, and pension payments.

  • Lingonberry & Cream

    It’s as though a human-sized raspberry is running full speed ahead at you, into your mouth - you’re a little freaked out by it, but then it gives you a massive sweet juicy hug and all is well with the world. So sugar cane sweet, bold and bright. Uniquely fresh crop Kenyan in the very best way.

  • Earl Grey & Rosehip

    Sold out. It’s calm with a lovely lightly bitter black tea aftertaste, has a grounded structure, and it doesn’t have that super typical natural funkiness (though definitely still a natural). There's fruit as you'd expect: papaya and lime. We're happy to share this easy drinking coffee as we roll into summertime.
