Coffee from Colombia
Colombia is the world’s most diverse coffee country. There are 20 departments producing coffee in Colombia, spanning from the Caribbean coast in the north, down through the center-west of the country to the Ecuador border. Coffee is produced as far east as the Amazonian border of Boyacá department, and as far west as outer Antioquia, the department where coffee was first introduced in Colombia.
We’re proud to feature unique offerings of traceable family farms from distinct micro–regions, organic and Fair Trade certified organizations, and offerings with unique experimental processing styles that push the envelope of specialty coffee.

What We Offer
What We Offer

Not sure what you need or where to start? Get in touch—we’re always happy to help.
Our hybrid classes cover a range of topics, from green coffee sourcing to roasting and brewing. Each class is taught by an industry expert who brings years of training and on-the-job experience to the table.
