Story

Colombia Excelso is a large green coffee bean, only slightly smaller than Colombia Supremo. Excelso is a term used to grade quality due to the correlation between bean size and coffee flavor. Supremo and Excelso coffee beans are harvested from the same tree, then sorted by size after the beans are processed. The Bourbon, Caturra, and Typica coffee plant varieties harvested are washed then patio sun dried to achieve their natural almond, caramel, chocolate, and grapefruit flavors. Colombia farms are unique for their ability to produce coffee throughout all 12 months of the year due to its range of micro climates and terrain. Colombia Excelso green coffee beans are from the Antioquia and Quindío regions of Colombia. Medellín, the “City of Eternal Spring”, is the capital of the Antioquia department and the birthplace of Colombian coffee.
