Backstory of the Bean

Columbia as a whole is well known for their coffee production, and with an annual output of about 12 million bags (that's nearly 100,000 tons!) they are the third largest coffee producer in the world. In addition to the quantity produced, Columbia is well known for producing consistently high quality coffees with mild, well-balanced, and varied flavor profiles.

 

The Huila region of Columbia is located in the southwest region of the country, resulting in much higher altitudes for coffee production than other areas of the country. These higher altitudes result in more complex, fruity, acidic, and aromatic flavor profiles than those of coffees produced in the northern regions of Columbia. Because of these geographical characteristics that make the Huila region prime land for coffee farming, crops from this area regularly win awards and honors for their quality and taste.
