Colombian coffee - the majority of our blends have a portion of Colombian in them. Its a social bean and goes well with others.
Colombia is considered as 'perfect' in terms of geography for growing coffee. Coffee produced is generally mild and well balanced. Colombia's average annual coffee production of 11.5million bags is the third total highest in the world, after Brazil and Vietnam, though highest in terms of arabica bean.
Colombia's three mountain ranges, or cordilleras, are really lines of Andean foothills which run from north to south. The coffee is all handpicked it would be extremley difficult to harvest it any other way, given the slopes are steep in the mountainous terrain. The climate provides plenty of moisture, so there is no irrigation or mulching required.
The acidity of Colombian coffees seldom matches that of certain Kenyans and Costa Ricans, but in general Colombia produces a more balanced cup, particularly in coffees of slightly heavier body.
