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)
Nectarine & Dark Chocolate
We taste 80% dark chocolate and stone fruit, specifically nectarine, along with some creamy & bitter walnut.
Earl Grey & Rosehip
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.
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.
Sold out. Everyone has their favorite. Be it Kvik Lunsj, Firkløver, or Helnøtt, we all have that one particular Norwegian chocolate bar that we gravitate towards. This tasty coffee from Finca Los Pirineos in El Salvador is those of you who can’t get enough Fruktnøtt in your life.
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.
Orange & Walnut
Sold out. A bright Colombian; this is a classic coffee from Hugo Guarnizo in the Tarqui department of Colombia. It was harvested during the secondary smaller harvest that occurs in Colombia; this is known colloquially as the mitaka.
