Colombia Supremo Dark
Colombia is the second largest exporter of coffee in the world, almost all of which is of gourmet quality. This is all due to the magnificent fertile land where over 2,000,000,000 coffee trees provide the world with an abundance of delicious coffee (over 12% of the world’s total supply). All of this coffee is of the Arabica type and is high mountain grown. The farms we deal with are located on the slopes of three cordilleras (chains) of the Andes. Supremo coffee beans are gourmet quality and the only Colombian green coffee bean that we import. This grade of coffee is reliably excellent and consists of large and extra-large size beans. Colombia coffee, at its very best, is a classic. No quality is extreme: This bean is full-bodied, but not so full-bodied as Sumatran; acidy but not nearly so as Ethiopian or Kenyan; richly flavoured but not quite as the best high-mountain Jamaican. The Colombian coffee even has a slight winey tone reminiscent of African coffees, but these winey notes are sparse and never dominate. We’ve roasted this to a ‘full city’ roast for a cup that is dark, smooth and rich. Enjoy!
