The Andes Mountains carves through the luscious landscape of Colombia, providing natural resources that enhance the growing capabilities of coffee from this country. Although the main growing season is between October and March, the ideal climate, soil and rainfall means coffee can be harvested throughout the year. We visit each year and have recently documented our travels, with this Colombia Travel Diary.
Colombian coffee is celebrated for its vibrant acidity, medium body, and remarkable balance. Common notes are caramel, chocolate, and citrus, accompanied by subtle sweetness. We often refer to Colombian coffee as “session coffee” as in something you can drink all day. Washed coffee processing is the prevalent method used here, with the growing landscape being typically made up by thousands of smallholder producers who often come together through co-operative and bigger washing stations.
More recently, we have launched our Atlas decaf project which showcases female producers in Colombia. The cooperative's quality control team, which is also comprised of females, shortlisted a selection of lots that meet our profile to create a beautiful coffee for us. Expect coffees from this country to be featured throughout the year. If none are showing, simply head to our speciality coffee collection or further your learning with our Colombia Coffee Guide.
