Background Details

Colombia Medellin Excelso EP is sourced from family-owned farms located in the municipality of Medellín in the department of Antioquia, Colombia . On average, each producer cultivates their coffee on less than 5 acres of land. Coffee producers use their own micro-mill to process harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee. Expocafé, an exporter dedicated to supporting small producers, collaborates with these producers improving their access to international markets and establishing higher earnings.
