Hambela Wamena is one of three washing stations owned by Mekuria Mergia. Our history goes way back as we used to buy coffee from another of his washing stations, Wote, in the early days of Nordic Approach. This particular washing station is located in Hambela, Guji, and buys cherries from around 500 farmers.
Mekuria Merga is one of three washing stations with this name. This particular washing station is located in Hambela, Guji, and buys cherries from around 500 farmers.
The three washing stations are named after their owner, Mekuria Merga, a highly respected coffee professional with 23 years experience in the industry. Mekuria Merga decided to establish his own export company “Wete Ambela” in 2018 to export coffees from his washing stations, which are renowned for their high quality coffees. Our sister company Nordic Approach has been buying Mekuria’s coffee through different exporters since 2014. Now we have a chance to buy directly from Mekuria, further strengthening an already great relationship
Supreme Roastworks is a café and roastery in the Norwegian capital, home of some of the best coffee roasters in the world. After operating as a roastery and working solely through wholesale accounts with restaurants, cafés and offices around the city since 2008, opened its first retail space in hip Grünerløkka early 2013.
Supreme Roastworks is an excellent spot for a quick mid-morning espresso or a slow mid-afternoon pour over and cinnamon bun. You’ll likely find a group of regulars sitting around the bar and catching up with the owners, and the staff will gladly engage in conversation about the coffee. “We love serving our amazing customers and working with people who truly enjoy and understand our concept and philosophy,” says Magnus. As they like to say: no fuss–just great coffee.
