Miraflores is Hugo Guarnizo’s farm located in the town of El Libano, Tarqui in Central Huila. Several of Hugo Guarnizo’s family members also own farms in the area; the community of coffee producers in this area is one that supports each other in sharing best practices, and creating community. Nordic Approach was drawn to this area because of the communal focus.
The particular coffee is processed at a micro mill on the farm. The cherries are pulped and fermented in small concrete tanks, washed and rinsed, before being dried in small ventilated parabolic dryers.
Tarqui is in the Central Cordillera of the Andes Mountains, in south western Colombia. In the northern part of this region the main harvest is in July-August and the secondary harvest occurs in November-December. In the southern parts this corner of Colombia, this growing cycle is reversed. These unique growing conditions make it possible to have fresh coffee from Tarqui all year.
Colombia & Caturra
65,63 kr per kg
Medium (ideal for a lighter bodied espresso coffee or those that enjoy more intense coffees)
Hazelnut & Mandarin
Sold out. Creamy chocolate, thick and rich with super sweet mandarin and stone fruit.
Jasmine & peach
Sold out. 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.
Nectarine & Dark Chocolate
Sold out. We taste 80% dark chocolate and stone fruit, specifically nectarine, along with some creamy & bitter walnut.
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.
