The novelty of Ethiopia just landed

Fresh coffees from Guji have just landed in our warehouse in Belgium. These are coffees we sourced from processing stations that are new to us! 


Harvests, shipments, samples. Let’s recap!

We have prepared a complete update on all our ten origins. This guide will shed light on what to expect from the coming months so your coffee purchase planning goes as smoothly as possible.

Monthly Update: new coffees, new platform

September comes loaded! We are switching platforms internally, which means the whole team is diving into new menus, layouts, and tons of information.

Have you cupped the fresh Honduran microlots yet?

In Honduras there is a huge variety of unique coffees, but often smallholders can’t produce them in large volumes, making it hard to keep their lots separated. But we can’t help falling in love with some of these very distinct microlots.


Connecting with… Andrés Salaverría 🎥​

We are always in contact with the producers at origin, however, sometimes we wish we could bring them closer to you. And this is why we decided to produce this video for you!

Autumn Cupping + 10 Year Anniversary Party 🎉​

The date for the Autumn Cupping is official: we will meet up at our Oslo headquarters on September 29 and 30. The cupping event will be followed by THE party to celebrate that we are turning 10 years old as a company!

Monthly Update and Salvadoran Special Preps ⚡

Summertime and the living is easy 🎶… but coming back to work can be pretty hectic – ask our beloved colleagues 🙂 Feel related? Take a look at the monthly update to know what August will look like at Nordic Approach.

New names among our 2022 Ethiopias 📣​

Our offer for Ethiopias has just gotten a top-up with plenty of new names and flavours to taste! Last year, we grew in volume with one partner so this time, we felt adventurous enough to explore new horizons.

Time to talk about El Salvador

As José Antonio told us during one of our visits to his farm, long-lasting relationships and strategic partners are what make the difference. And we couldn’t agree more with him.

Monthly update and summery Honduras​

Another month, another update! We are approaching the sunniest months of the year in Norway – despite not having seen a clear sky in weeks 🙂 – and we can’t help but look for those tropical notes and summer vibes in our fav beverage.

Kenyas are landing!​​

Just like every week, here we are to let you know what are we up to in Nordic Approach. The hot topic this week couldn’t be other than celebrating that our Kenyas are arriving in Belgium!

Bountiful and Beautiful Ethiopias

The stars have finally aligned so that we can proudly say we have over 30 coffees in the warehouse with 88 points or more. It may come as no surprise that the majority of these are fresh off the boat from Ethiopia, but what may surprise you is that many still have very healthy availability.

Monthly update and the after-party 💃

 Our Tropiq colleague, Joanne, is gearing up for a trip to Peru and Brazil to touch base with our producing partners. This time, she’ll save some space in her luggage for the delicious coffee our customers have roasted so it can be shared with the producers.

Your Kenyas are ready!​

A lot can be said to hype Kenyas, but we think Espen, our lab manager, captured the sentiment well: “I don’t know how I manage to forget and underrate these every time until I actually cup”.

Plan your coffees from Honduras​

The crop in Honduras is about 80% completed with 20% remaining in the field – depending of course on the area. Due to different factors, volumes of Honduran coffees decreased by 30-40% this year.

Ethiopia 2022 season has begun 📢​

Magarrisa, Diima, Samii… What do all these fancy names mean? Lucky for you, we have this flavour wheel of Ethiopian profiles that should help clear up any confusion.
