Today Colombia is the second largest producing country in the world after Brazil, and with its favourable geographical and climatic factors (the coffee producing area lies among the foothills of the Andes where the climate is temperate and moist) is renowned for its quality and flavour. Colombia Excelso Huila comes from a group of small farms with an average size of 2 hectares each, located within the Huila department. These small farms are planted in mostly Caturra, and processing is of the traditional method. They all use manual hand-crank de-pulping machines to remove the cherry from the beans. They use raised beds for drying the coffee which gives the coffee good air circulation and even drying. In short the farmers are able to oversee how their coffee is handled, sorted, and prepped every step of the way. These Arabica beans are fine, mellow and nutty, well balanced flavour. This coffee also forms the base for all our flavoured coffee.
