This coffee is perfect for those that enjoy a smooth and easy-drinking coffee. You won’t find the overbearing flavors found in coffee from other countries.
Due to the large growing regions in Colombia and the different varieties available it is difficult to predict exactly which flavors you’ll get from single origin Colombian coffee.
However, sweet, chocolatey flavors are very prominent in most, with some fruity notes that can touch on caramel, apple and red fruits like berries.
The Colombian aromas tend to be a little citrusy and fruity and at times, there are hints of spice.
Colombian coffee beans
Colombian coffee beans are wet-processed or washed after harvesting and colleting, then milled, and exported by the Colombian Coffee Federation.
Three of Colombia's most distinguished coffees—Medellin, Armenia, and Manizales are named after the region in which they were grown and then often marketed together in order to simplify the transfers of large coffee contracts. These coffees are known by the acronym MAM.
