Why Colombian Coffee?
Geography and Climate
Coffee grows best in volcanic soil, at altitudes of 1,200 to 1,800 meters, in places that are free of frost but receive around 80 inches of rain a year. Colombia ticks all those boxes.
- The Growing and Harvesting Process
The best coffee is grown on steep slopes, surrounded by foliage – which provides shade and prevents the beans from becoming too hot – and believe it or not every bean is HAND PICKED!
- The Type of Bean
Colombia, with its perfect terrain and climate, is one of the only countries that produce 100% arabica beans.
