Our Dark Colombian is a slightly stronger coffee than our Colombian Med, which makes it more versatile as it is suitable for cafetiere use, filter coffees and intense espressos. Again using Medellin Excelso, from Colombia's Cordillera Central in the Andes, this excellent coffee really does display some of the finer qualities of the renowned Colombian coffee bean: a rich aroma, luxurious depth and sweet flavours of fruit and chocolate. These Colombian beans benefit from being grown in an area that is known as the 'tierra templada', the Colombian term for the climatic zone located between 900 and 1,980 meters that provides ideal growing conditions. The conditions in the tierra templada, or 'temperate land' result in a robust bean that gives a full-bodied coffee and an intense espresso, topped off with a hint of sharp acidity.
These beans are supplied green, un-roasted, and in a 908g bag. See our roasted Colombian Coffee if you'd prefer to receive pre-roasted coffee.
