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. Colombia exports approximately 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.
Great. And a great experience to use beans again.
We did like this coffee but did find it a little strong. We have only recently bought our bean to cup machine so are working our way through the coffees. I am not certain we would purchase this one again as there are so many lovely coffees.
Really good coffee and great selections
After sampling many different coffees I have now settled on a monthly repeat order of Columbian Excelso Huila and Guatemalan Antigua Los Volcanos ( both dark roast, espresso ground, brewed in my old French stove top coffee brewer). Best coffee I have ever tasted.
Excellent flavour! Excellent service! And looking forward to more!
