Thank you for buying our Colombia roast for espresso
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
For those third wave coffee drinkers we came up this vibrant coffee; sweet with nice acidity and a hint of bitterness for that morning kick. We use it in our hopper for those espresso or long black drinkers.
You can use this beans in your espresso machine or moka pot. Adjust your grind size for a slow extraction 35-40sec perhaps and water temperature (not too hot) to avoid those harsh flavour compounds coming out. With a good technique you will enjoy your brew :-)

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.
