NORDIC APPROACH

Unique green coffee - Transparent sourcing

Nordic Approach is a sourcing company focusing solely on high quality green coffees. We do the groundwork to identify, improve, select, and import the best coffees from the most interesting origins. Every coffee we buy or forward to a client is selected based on the cup profile. We believe transparency through the chain and premiums going back to the producers is the only way to achieve a sustainable quality coffee production

Just in:

Ilomba, Tanzania

We started to work with this small group of farmers in the south of Tanzania some years ago. The flavor profiles are pretty unique. Ilomba Factory is a washing station located in Ilomba Village, Mbozi district, on steep sloping hills of South Western highlands region of Mbeya. It is a voluntary organization of smallholder coffee farmers aimed at joining forces to improve coffee production and marketing.The most remarkable thing about this group has been their development, and their ability to maintain their independence. They have taken a portion of the premium we have been paying over the years and have both re-invested in their processing by buying a Penagos eco pulper. And have also invested in the local school.

Lab's favourite:

Buziraguhindwa #22

This lot is from farmers within a close enough distance from the Buziraguhindwa washing station that they deliver their cherry by foot or bicycle for processing. The producer separates the coffees both by area and date of picking until it’s cupped and approved. They also float and hand sort cherries for all premium lots before it is pulped, fermented soaked and dried on raised beds.
This coffee has been very distinctive, with tropical fruit and winy acidity.

Featured origin:

Huila, Colombia, coffee farms

Colombia

Colombia is in our opinion the country in Latin America with most potential in quality and diversity in flavor. As they harvest coffees all year around it makes it a complex origin to work with.  We have decided to deal with that through very frequent shipments of fresh coffees throughout the year to always be able to provide roasters with the best qualities. We currently have many fresh harvest microlots, and a few blends.
