Strawberry was the first description that came to mind, even before we could taste the coffee, or even roast it. It was the first thing we smelled when we opened the bag to do a test roast and it has a strong presence when brewed. The coffee is jammy and rich, with a lively citrus character pairing beautifully with the sweetness, like a sip of Champagne after eating a strawberry.
This coffee is from Nordic Approach's colour concept, where they categorise coffees within a region in Ethiopia based on shared flavour. This coffee falls into the category called Burtukaana, which is the word for orange in the Oromiffa language. Burtukaana is characterised by its richness, fermented fruit notes, strawberry-like aroma and citrus brightness.
