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 microregions, organic and Fair Trade certified organizations, and offerings with unique experimental processing styles that push the envelope of specialty coffee.
