Thank you for buying our Colombia roast.
We love brewing these beans as a filter. The sweetness really stands out, due to its natural process. The taste is clean, balanced and has a nice acidity.
Below we've provided some information about where these beans come from, and how to get the most out of them.
How to brew these beans
This is a Diego Samuel Bermudez Coffee, a farmer well-known and recognised for is processing and fermentation innovation. We therefore strongly recommend these beans as a filter, ideally as V60, Chemex or similar methods to get the best from it.
Take the time to get your extraction right on whatever filter method you use to ensure you get the full benefits of its taste and body. For example, pay attention to your timings and brewing process as recommended by the filter method. You'll know you've got this right, when you taste that sweetness. For me, it reminds me of peaches; a sweet, crispy and heavy body.
About the farm
The beans were grown by Diego Samuel, in El Tampo, Cauca, Western Colombia. Imported to the UK by Falcon Coffees.
Diego Samuel works on his farm together with his wife, two daughters and two brothers. They are committed to learning and achieving better and better results with their processing, and have even won several awards around beans production.
The farm focuses on the technology needed to produce high grade coffee, and Diego and his family built a lab to experiment and develop their own fermentation protocols. They have also put in place processes to mitigate environmental changes, allowing them to replicate the same standard of coffee each season.
Diego's farm is well recognised among specialty coffee roasters and his beans are always sought-after.
Colombia is the third largest producer of coffee in the world after Brazil and Vietnam – though holds the crown for being the largest producer of washed Arabica.
Colombia has three secondary mountain ranges (cordilleras) that run towards the Andes and it is amongst these ranges that the majority of coffee is grown. The hilly terrain provides a wide variety of micro-climates, meaning that harvesting can take place throughout the year as coffee from different farms will ripen at varying times.
Colombia is the second most biodiverse country in the world. Second only to Brazil, Colombia is one of only 17 countries in the world classified as “megadiverse”. One out of every 10 species can be found in Colombia. 1/10th of all species on EARTH!
Colombia is the number one happiest country in the world. In 2013 and 2014 Colombia claimed the “#1 Happiest Country in the World” title according to the surveying of the Barometer of Happiness and Hope Foundation.
