Bomba de Fruta – Colombia

strawberries, pomelo, pink lemonade

  • Filter

This coffee is an expression of the development of Nordic Approach and our taste in coffee, as well as a testament to the producer's developments in processing. Wildly fruity, funky coffees never used to be our thing, they also have never been produced to the level that they are now. With a better understanding and knowledge of fermentation, and with ways of controlling this we have come to love the funk! This is how we started to discuss processing coffees with producers and different ways we could achieve more fruit and still great coffee. We came up with the name Bombe de Fruta because it literally means fruit bomb.

Bomba de Fruta is a concept we created to encompass natural coffees from Colombia. While we have been buying some natural coffees from an individual producer in Antioquia, Colombia for some years, it is not common to find coffees being produced as natural in Colombia.

We thought it would be interesting to present coffees processed this way from other regions of the country. We have grown more and more fond of fruit expressive coffees over the years.

Producing natural coffees comes at great risk to producers as they cannot sell this coffee on the local market. The National Federation of Coffee Growers (FNC) will buy any coffee in Colombia that is washed and meets their quality standards, so the producers need to make sure they also produce some pulped, washed coffees to ensure their income.
