  • Didio Ordoñes, Colombia

    Linnéas competition coffee for the World Barista Championship 2015!

    This coffee comes from a close collaboration between och green-coffee supplier Nordic Approach and Colombian coffee exporter Cocentral, an organisation dedicated to completely transparent and sustainable business. The project was started with the goal of raising the income and living standards of local coffee farmers, whilst delivering a more traceable and high quality product. Together Nordic Approach and Cocentral and chosen to support farmers based of a set criteria, such as altitude, coffee variety and processing. These producers are then supported economically through investments and through sharing knowledge so that they may demand a high price the the quality of their harvest. So far a total of 70 farms are included in the project, with room for expansion, Didio Ordoñes is one of these producers

    The project in Colombia has even led to greater transparency for us now that coffee from individual farms is processed separately and sold as individual lots, allowing us to more closely see how each producers hard work has paid off in terms of taste in the final cup.
