Why you’ll love it: Colombian coffee has long been loved throughout the world for it's drinkability. This smooth, balanced coffee is our interpretation of the classic, popular Colombian style, with exceptional sweetness and subtle flavors of citrus, grape, and cherry.
Story of the bean: Producers in the San Roque Association process and dry their own coffees and deliver them to quality analyst, Duver Rojas, who tastes the coffees every day and pays incentives for the best beans The farmers' hard work on the steep hillsides unfolding below the San Roque Monastery and above the Magdalena River created this coffee of refined sweetness.

Exceptionally Smooth Coffee
I am using this blend in a European stove top espresso maker (Bialetti). I had it pre-ground for this use by La Colombe. It yields a strong, but not bitter cup of espresso that is smooth and drinkable even without sugar - no bitterness that’s often associated with espresso.
I enjoy La Colombe coffee but Colombia is my absolute favorite! Can't get enough.
simply the best
it is basicly the best I've ever had
This is the only brand of coffee I will drink! The BEST!!
Aroma is wonderful and coffee was smooth. Slight hint of chocolate but also slight after taste edge. Terrific find. Look forward to trying another.
