WEDNESDAY, 20TH NOVEMBER - "A Conversation with Fotis & Tim" - Join us in our new lab at Tøyengata 29c for a cozy evening talk where our roaster and barista Fotis and Tim will talk about their recent trip to Finca Tamana and also our own biological farm in Colombia, Finca el Suelo.

Fotis will be serving some of the coffee that he picked and processed at Finca Tamana. The coffee that he spent 5 hours picking and went from 11 kilos of cherry to only 1 kilo of high quality coffee. (see our instagram stories for more detail)
Tim will also be talking about the progress made on both farms and show photos from both Finca Tamana and Finca el Suelo. He will also be sharing some of his knowledge about soil biology and talk about the challenges he has had with biological farming practices.

If you are interested in learning more about the process behind the coffee you drink or want to understand a bit more about soil health and how biology grows plants, this will be a light version where you can learn about some big topics while enjoying a cup of coffee at the same time.

This is part of our educational evenings for our team and staff, but we welcome our guests and customers to join this evening to learn about the work we do in Colombia. There are limited tickets available, but that also means there will be plenty of coffee to drink.

Place: TW lab, Tøyengata 29c, 2nd floor.

Time: Wednesday 20th November at 18:30 - 20:00

In case you live in Oslo and missed our last coffee subscription pack, you're in luck. We still have some bags of our award-winning Cielito Lindo coffee for sale at the bar on Grunersgate 1. This is the coffee that helped us win the Nordic Roaster Forum this year and is alone worth tasting. That said, if you want to recreate the full subscription experience for yourself, pair it with the other 2 coffees from Nacimiento, the Pacas and Bourbon, so you can taste the subtle differences in the coffees from this farm. I'd be curious to know, which is your favourite?

I am leaving Colombia after 2 weeks of hard and intense work on our biological coffee farm Finca el Suelo. Our farm is progressing slowly and I am looking forward to coming back In 2020 to plant more coffee trees in these holes we made last week. You can follow the project and see the work we have done so far @fincaelsuelo

It's finally hit sub-zero temps here in Oslo and we're expected to get our first snow tomorrow. It just makes the whole ceremony of coffee all the sweeter for it. Come drop by our bar at Grunersgate 1 for some freshly brewed coffee. Try our Tamana Espresso in a cappuccino, latte or cortado if you'd like a little taste of coffee from the farm where I'm currently at in Colombia.

What coffee cherries at Finca Tamana look like, before they are depulped. All of these coffee cherries are selectively hand-picked by hired pickers under Elias' supervision. They are then hand-sorted before they are processed to make sure only ripe cherries are processed together. Fast forward a few stages and you end up with a clean, sweet-tasting coffee just like the Finca Tamana Variedad Colombia which we have in stock. More precisely, this particular variety of coffee tastes of brown sugar and stone fruit, with herbal notes. .

NOTE: This coffee is available as filter or espresso roast, for retail and wholesale customers.

Here's a link to the podcast interview I recorded with Thomas Hylland Eriksen for the WWNA (Why The World Needs Anthropologists) event here in Oslo recently. Thomas is a Norwegian anthropologist and currently a professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo. We discuss things like: - what's green and what's sustainable in our business
- why soil is so important
- why it's important to support the work of farmers and think about the whole value chain of the coffee making process
- what things we could do to make our cities more sustainable .

As some of you know I am currently in Colombia doing some work on my farm, as well as visiting (staying with) Elias at Finca Tamana. While it will be some time yet before you can taste the latest harvest from here, you can visit our physical and online stores to grab a bag of Finca Tamana recently roasted for filter or espresso use. Flavour notes: Brown sugar, stone fruit & herbal.

Find our espresso bar and retail shelves at Grunersgate 1, Grunerløkka here in Oslo.

Here is the moment we found out that we had won the 2019 Nordic Roaster Competition this year for the 5th time in a row. We competed with the Cielito Lindo Ihcafe-90 produced by Jobneel in Honduras and luckily our hard work paid off. I’m happy to say we have enough of this coffee left to send to ***all our November coffee subscribers*** so you can get to taste and experience this treat for yourself at home.

Thank you for the interview Coffee T&I Magazine "Looking back, 10 years ago baristas spent 70% of the training time on perfecting the “craft of how to make espresso and steam milk”, whereas today they spend the most time making guests feel welcome and giving them a good experience, according to Wendelboe. But time has changed. While many renowned coffee shops have expanded with several establishments worldwide, Wendelboe is happy about having only one store. “I personally find it more rewarding to have one store where I feel the quality we are serving our guests is consistent and satisfying.” Wendelboe believes that his shop is known for delivering consistent high quality, sweet, clean, and light roasted coffees. When in store, you can only get a coffee or coffee beans because Wendelboe and his team “want it to be a place where people come to have coffee, and try new coffees in new ways”.

Here's a little video I made recently with fellow roasters, Marit and Fotis as we talk about and reflect upon our latest 2019 Nordic Roaster Championship win. This is the 5th year in a row (8th in total) that we have managed to hold on to our place, and I am so grateful to everyone on my team for making this happen and all working together to maintain our quality and standards. Cheers guys.

At the end of this month, I will be travelling to Colombia with Fotis, our barista-turned-roaster and soon to be compost maker ;) I have already given him an extensive packing list since most people don't realise how much thought and work actually goes into working on a farm. Tall boots are included. Stay tuned on our Facebook and Instagram for live updates. Meanwhile, is there anything you would like to see Fotis doing on the farm? If you let us know asap we can try to organise ourselves before the trip...
