Fresh from Gothenburg’s specialty coffee scene, let us introduce Gringo Nordic Coffee Roasters as our August’s roaster!
Gringo Nordic started roasting this year, but the team behind the roastery has many years of experience from other coffee companies such as Johan & Nyström and Gevalia. This month, we had the pleasure to ship three very special coffees.
LA SIBERIA HONEY
Origin: El Salvador
Altitude: 1450 masl
Flavour: Peach, mandarine & milk chocolate
The team behind Gringo Nordic have known Carmen & Rafael Da Silva, the producers of this coffee, for 15 years and visited their farms several times. Gringo Nordic describes how they always surprise them with their improvements and experiments. This micro lot is a honey processed coffee on the large sized variety Pacamara. The coffee has a sweet and soft taste of peach, mandarine and milk chocolate.
Variety: Local heirloom
Altitude: 1800 - 2130 masl
Flavour: Fruit, sweet berries & vanilla
The small region Guji in the south of Ethiopia produces some of the worlds most exciting coffees. The quality is incredible. This natural processed coffee from small-holder farmers at Dimtu Tero is one of them. The coffee has been dried in its pulp and has got notes of dried fruit, sweet berries and vanilla. Compared to what is often found in specialty coffee, this coffee is not only produced according to organic principles, it’s also certified organic.
Our tasting box members also received…
Variety: SL28 & SL34
Altitude: 1700 - 1800 masl
Flavour: Green apple, lemonade & elderflower
This fine Kenyan coffee is from the region Kirinyaga in Nyeri. 900 small-holder farmers bring their coffee to the Kiangai washing station. The coffee of the varieties SL28 and SL34 is grown in red volcanic soil, a soil rich in minerals. This coffee has notes of green apple, lemonade and elderflower. An elegant and complex coffee that tastes just as good warm as it does chilled with ice.
We hoped you enjoyed this month’s box! Don’t miss out on our next box.
