The richness of flavour for which Colombian coffee is celebrated is mainly down to an excellent climate, perfect soil and the exact right amount of rainfall. Coffee thrives in places with at least 200 centimetres (80 inches) of rainfall per year, as well as in locations where the temperature never falls below freezing.
There are two different types of coffee bean: arabica and robusta (as well as new varieties produced within those two species). Colombia, with its perfect terrain and climate, is one of the only countries that produce 100% arabica beans. But what does this have to do with the quality of Colombian coffee? It’s simple, really.
Single-origin Colombian coffee is coffee that has been produced by and traceable from one single farm or cooperative in Colombia. Colombia is the third-highest producer of coffee behind Brazil and Vietnam. Coffee was probably first introduced to Colombia in 1723 by the Jesuits.
In mountainous Colombia, our norm is to “cherry pick” or select only the fully ripe cherries. Our coffee pickers examine a tree every 10 days or so and a good picker can harvest up to 90 kilos of ripe red cherries a day that way, around 18 kilos of coffee beans.

So it’s just a matter of showing them the merits of true direct trade coffee (and lighter roasts!), it will take time, but we are getting there!
