Tim Wendelboe’s Coffee Podcast

Episode 8

Funky Coffee

Join us for another coffee podcast episode where I discuss funky coffees together with Jamie Jongkind  who works with sales and coffee purchasing at Nordic Approach. It is no surprise that I am personally not a huge fan of coffees that has pronounced flavours of fermentation, but our guest Jamie explains why he loves funky coffees and what fermentation can contribute with in terms of flavours.

This is a long episode where we discuss natural processed coffees vs washed coffees, try to explain what anaerobic and carbonic macerated  coffees means and we dig in to what kind of flavours you can expect or what to watch out for in these strange and trendy coffees.

A chat about Marit’s trip to Central-America

In this episode I am joined by my team member Marit who is one of our roasters and baristas. Marit was traveling with me to Central America in February this year where we visited Gilberto at Los Pirineos in El Salvador, Moises Herrera and Marysabel Caballero in Marcala and Jobneel at Finca Nacimiento in Santa Barbara in Honduras. Marit shares some of her experiences from her first ever visit to a coffee farm and we talk about how it is to taste coffees at origin and share some of our memories from the trip.

Coffee Processing at Los Pirineos with Gilberto Baraona

In our fifth episode I visit famous coffee producer Gilberto Baraona on his coffee farm Los Pirineos in El Salvador. Listen in while we speak about coffee processing and also about Gilberto’s farm that has been in his family for over 100 years. Gilberto will also explain how different processes like washed, natural, honey or anaerobic fermentation affect coffee flavour and how he is able to custom make different qualities of coffee for different clients. We have been buying coffees from Gilberto since 2009 but mainly the washed coffees he produces. Gilberto is not only a great producer but has become a good friend and a person that inspires me and that I respect a lot.
