Colombia has cane sugar sweetness, medium complexity and heavy mouth feel. It may often be used as a quality blender to provide character to any blend.
Colombia has a great history in coffee. As an entire country it works together to push growing technique. It has extremely high standards for producers. Colombia has a challenge in its infrastructure as far as getting the coffee to the ports yet it is one of the top producing countries in the world. In our primary espresso blend we use what is called an excelso grade coffee. The other grade is supremo which we source often from estates. Both are brilliant. We like them for the subtle fruit and sweetness qualities and also the red wine character that is often present.
