Colombia, known for its high quality coffee, is the second largest producer of coffee in the world and the largest producer of washed Arabica coffee. Colombian exports total around 12.5 million bags, half to the United States.
Colombia only produces washed Arabica coffee. There are primarily three varieties grown in Colombia and the coffee is referred to by the region in which is grown.
Colombian coffee is graded before shipment according to bean size. This particular type is Excelso - screen size 15-16. Excelso is quite large, but smaller than Supremo. Huila region, located in the southern part of Colombia, has all the attributes that are needed to produce an exceptional coffee. Volcanic soils, high altitude, plenty of rainfall and forests that provide shade. Traditional farming methods are still used to produce this world renowned high quality coffee.
This is an all time favourite of mine,I love it.
Great coffee beans...speedy delivery
Really good, brilliant service overall
Great coffee! Very well balanced, lovely and aromatic in the cup. I'm making this as a filter coffee using the Clever dripper. Grinding to 20 clicks on a standard comandante C40 and steeping for 2 minutes in the Clever dripper. Absolutely delicious.
Ordered a replacement jug for our coffee maker from this site, as this was the cheapest around (£9.00 as opposed to £25 (!) on Amazon at the time of purchase). We also ordered some coffee beans. Received the order quickly. The jug was a genuine replacement part and the coffee beans delicious. Will order again.
