Sudan Rume is a wild growing coffee tree originating from the forests of the intertropical zone of Africa, southeast of the Republic of Sudan. It was discovered in 1942 in the Boma Plateau. Before bringing this variety to the farm multiple soil studies were made leading to the best results in Las Margaritas farm. This variety needs a very prolonged and controlled fermentation process. It takes from 20 to 34 hours of this complex fermentation process in order to get the most exiting flavors out of these special beans.

We are Gringo Nordic, a curious little coffee roasting company in Gothenburg, Sweden. Established May 2018. We are committed to great coffee and our customers.
We source 100 % fully transparent speciality coffees from single farms, estates and cooperatives. A lot of the coffees come from organically certified farms. But a lot of the coffee comes from much smaller plantations, where a certification would not be economically possible. But we support them anyway, there is often a lot of good intentions behind each farmer, especially the ones that work with quality. They want to take care of the earth they make their living from, and generally avoid the high costs of fertilizers at any cost.
The first thing to say about speciality coffee is that it’s coffee. It’s picked, fermented, dried, peeled, sorted, milled, shipped, roasted and brewed in a myriad of ways, and finally drunk with or without pastries or food. It is also coffee made by artisans with a minimum of defects, coffees that are produced the way they should. With a grade over 80 points, set by coffee-experts. Clean and sweet coffees. Good honest coffees.
We slow roast our coffee in small batches on the most energy efficient roasting machine on the planet, using air roasting technology. We adapt each roasting to each unique coffee, so that there is a balance between sweetness, acidity and fullness, the way we think coffee tastes the best. We focus on drink-friendly pleasurable coffees.
We genuinely love coffee – we’ll make sure you never doubt it.
