Tarqui is a town in the municipality of Huila, it is in a valley and surrounded by mountains. It is in these mountains that lie some of the most fantastic coffees we have experienced from Colombia. Tarqui is dense with coffee growers, and Nordic Approach together with the exporter we have been working to identify the best farmers in the region. They are now at the point where they have a stable and committed group of supreme farmers that wants to work with them. Nordic Approach has been arranging a micro lot competition for coffee producers in Tarqui annually since December 2015. The competition for the farmers is announced in advance so they can be extra careful when picking and processing the coffee. Certain parameters that the farmers should fulfil (moisture content, yield factor, harvest period, lot size, and so on) are set. Then, when all the entered lots have been approved, NA gathers a panel of professionals and cup and score the coffee blindly. There is a  set fixed premium prizes for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd-5th, 6th to 10th, and 11th to 20th place, and they commit to buying these. The level this year was incredibly high. and this is a blend of coffees that placed 11th-20th, and it's cupping amazing, scoring 88 points!
