The most interesting feature of this coffee is that it is a blend of micro lots from the same region in Pitalito. Its the first time we've been working with this type of blend but its extra exciting because it allows us access to a range of smallholders that we've not had the chance of working with before.
The Bruselito coffee is Nordic Approach's crafted concept for high-end micro lot blends from the vereda Bruselas and the surroundings of Pitalito. The selection and combination of lots is based on cup profile, score, and geography. These coffees come from small farmers that are a member of Cadefihuila Cooperative. Nordic Approach works alongside exporters having coffee programs with the cooperatives targeting certain areas, groups or producers within the cooperative focusing on quality.
Pitalito is the main city located in the south of Huila. It is surrounded by coffee areas of amazing potential. The altitudes for our coffees generally ranges from 1600 – 2000 masl. The farmers often work in groups and are selling the coffee to the local bodegas (purchasing points for parchment).
Various smallholders in the Huila region
Caturra & Castillo
92,30kr per kg
Medium to dark (ideal for 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.
