Columbian coffee that’s as popular now as it ever was
From the mid-19th century onwards coffee exportation increased exponentially and hasn’t stopped since then in distributing its coffee around the world. Colombian coffee is renowned for its taste and flavour, and due to their clever marketing, it’s stayed on top, despite competition from other countries new to coffee production. Coffee is grown in one of Columbia’s two main regions, which are Medellin and Armenia & Manizales and Bogota and Bucaramanga. This latter region produces coffee that is heavier and richer than the former, where the coffee is rich and balanced.
High altitudes and plenty of shade
Grown at high altitudes the coffee is cared for with great precision and accuracy, making sure it’s well shaded with rich volcanic soil, which provides the coffee with abundant nutritious minerals. As you can imagine then Columbian coffee is not only great tasting, it’s full of body, rich and with a taste that comes with a great balance.
What can you expect from Columbian Cundinamarca?
Naturally, it comes from the province of Tequendama within Cundinarmaca, which is north of Bogota. It’s grown at high altitudes and is made of 3 varieties which are Colombia, Caturra and Typica. The harvesting season is from April through to June and from October to the month of December.
Sweet, nutty and rich
If you like sweet coffee, then this is the one for you. It’s usually far better to try any coffee dark with no milk or sugar, but if you do miss your sweetness, then the Cundinamarca should give your sweet tooth a satisfying fix. Its sweetness is marked by a citrusy fruitiness that comes with sharp acidity, much as you’d find in a piece of fruit. This gorgeous coffee is complex, well balanced and rich, with that beautiful sweetness redolent of oranges and notes of honey with a hint of nuttiness. It’s been roasted light so you’ll enjoy all those flavours to the full. If you like your coffee sweet then you might find that the Cundinamarca is everything you want it to be, with the versatility to be enjoyed in-between and after most meals.
