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.
I can’t fault the beans or the staff, excellent service as always. Would be great to meet these guys one day face to face and thank them for the effort they put in. Even maybe have a coffee with them
I bought 4kg Columbian green beans. They roasted well abs taste great. However, they were packaged in a single plastic bag -rather unwieldy. I’d have preferred single kg packages.
Lovely coffee at good price and very fast delivery. Doubt if I'll be buying again but that's brexit for you, sorry but I have always preferred to leave my money in the EU
Colombian excelso huila are a very versatile bean. These always come well packaged and fantastic consistency throughout. Would recommend to all
Redber is a Company I trust
