    Our fresh Kenyan coffees will be starting to arrive next month, but if you can't wait that long, this may be the perfect coffee to warm up with!

    Produced by Javier Cardozo, this coffee is so vibrant and fruity that we were sure it was a Kenyan coffee when we first tasted it at the start of the year. This coffee was sourced through Nordic Approach, who have been buying coffee from Javier and his son Arvey for the last few years. Javier has nearly 50 years of experience working as a coffee farmer, which is perhaps why he is able to produce exceptionally clean and complex lots like this one.

    The cherries at Javier’s farm ‘La Cabaña’ are picked every 15 days and then processed at his wet mill. They are then fermented for 36 hours, washed, and dried on covered and raised beds. Javier mainly cultivates Colombia and Castillo varieties but this lot has been picked exclusively from the small amount of Bourbon trees on the farm.

    With flavours of blackberries, cranberry and hibiscus, expect a complex and fruity cup with a clean crisp finish.

    Importer: Nordic Approach

    Javier grows, harvests, pulps and ferments all of his coffee at his farm, La Cabaña. After processing, he sells the parchment to Coocentral, a cooperative who mills the coffee, prepares the export documentation and transports the coffee to port. Coocentral then sells the coffee to our importer, Nordic Approach, who ships the coffee to their own warehouse in Belgium and arranges the onward transport to our roastery.
