Our Colombia Supremo Huila is a 17/18 screen true Colombian supremo specialty green coffee that has been grown in Colombia since at least 1732!
As the the 3rd largest producer of coffee in the world, Colombia is home to a vast number of coffee growing regions. Huila is one of the regions in the southern part of Colombia where many small farm holders sell their coffee beans in parchment to a local mill. Specialty Huila coffee is grown between 3,500 and 5,000 foot elevation in the Andes mountain range. “Supremo” describes the bean size as Supremo beans are either 17 or 18 screen size. (Excelso are the 14/15 screen size). This Colombia Supremo Huila is mild and has a great balance between its body and acidity. The cup has a nice fruity-floral finish and a hint of spice!
The Huila Department is separated from another well known coffee region, Popayán by the mountain range known as the Central Cordilleras. Within the Cordilleras are a number of both active and inactive volcanoes, including one called Puracé which is the region’s most active. The majestic, snow capped Puracé Peak which last erupted in 1950, reaches an incredible height of 15,600 ft and is a defining feature of the Popayán skyline.
