HOME BREWED COLOMBIAN COFFEE RECIPE

Coffee enthusiasts love to try something different with each cup they sip. For such coffee fans, Colombian Coffee offers something interesting and exciting. Colombia produces one of the highest amounts of coffee beans in the world. Coffee plants flourish in tropical climates under the shade of banana trees. As Colombia has a high altitude, this factor shapes the growth of coffee beans.

Coffee reached Colombia in 1723. The initial spread was slow but gained significance at the end of the 19th century. By this time, coffee beans were 50% of the total exports of Colombia. After Vietnam and Brazil, Colombia is the third-largest producer of Coffee.

Colombian Coffee is not just a variety of coffee beans. It is named so because it is grown in Colombia. It has an excellent flavor with a prized aroma. Almost all Colombian Coffee grown is that of the Arabica variety.

If a packet of Coffee is Colombian, they are either a blend from Colombia, or they are of a single origin also from Columbia. Single-origin Coffee from Colombia is produced by one farm, and they are traceable from a single cooperative or farm in Colombia. Colombian coffee packets contain the words Excelso and Supremo. The tag is a reference to the coffee bean size. The label does not give preference to the coffee quality and is not traceable to some regions in Colombia.

Colombia exports most of the best coffee beans that it produces. You can get your hands on these coffee beans and brew them in the comfort of your home! So, next time you want Colombian coffee beans, there is no need to go to Colombia for a brew.

Colombian Supremo is the perfect balance of citrusy, nutty and sweet flavor notes, but it depends on your flavor profile.
