Colombia is the second largest producer of coffee in the world and the largest producer of washed and Arabica coffee. Colombia is well known for its high quality coffee and about half of their exports go to the United States.

Colombia only produces washed Arabica coffee. There are three primary varieties grown in Colombia and the coffee is referred to by the region in which it is grown. There are many coffee producing regions in the country. Colombia is proficient in producing plenty of delicious and some sought after coffee.

This particular type is Excelso; this term is a coffee grading term in Colombia. Excelso coffee beans are large, but slightly smaller than Supremo coffee beans. Excelso coffee beans are a screen size of 15-16. The term ‘Excelso’ and ‘Supremo’ only refers to the size of the bean and has nothing to do with the quality of the bean.Supremo and Excelso coffee beans can be harvested from the same tree, but are then sorted by size.

As the beans are classified by either Excleso or Supremo it obscures any potential traceability. Coffee will arrive from many farms in the area before being sieved mechanically to the grading size.Medellin is one of the larger coffee growing areas in Colombia. This region produces the majority of Colombian coffee that is categorized by bean size grade (e.g. Excelso). Medellin’s have a medium body and are typically not as fruity/winey as coffees from other Colombian regions.The cup is well balanced and can be enjoyed at any time of day
