Kenyan coffees are important to us, and we love both the big classic fruit profiles as well as the subtle, herbal-like Kenyans. It has taken a little more cupping work this year to find the kind of coffees we love Kenya for and we realise they are expensive, we have been extra careful to only buy coffees that at the time we cupped them for purchase were tasting outstanding!
The two daughters, Maria and Arlene, who assist their father in running their farm, are a glimpse of the future generation of coffee producers.
I wanted to write this blog post just to give you all an insight into how we in work with samples. Samples are a big part of the daily routine here in the Lab and our main way of selling coffee to our customers. In average, we roast 3 hours daily, to prepare for cupping or to send out to you guys and gals.
We would like to take this opportunity to give you all a 2014 wrap up, and an update of what is going on in 2015.
Overall 2014 has been a great year for us at Nordic. Our coffees have tasted great and have been very well received in the market, many baristas have performed well in competitions with our coffees, and most importantly we have had a return of satisfied customers increasing their annual volumes with us.
