Colombian Coffee Beans, Colsuaves’ Popayán coffee comes from the region called “Meseta de Popayán” (Popayán plateau) in the Colombian department of Cauca. Beautiful and rugged landscapes, cool and rainy climate as well as an abundance of Indian settlements and ancient archeological sites characterize this area of southwest Colombia. Located on the eastern side of the highest mountain range in the country, this magnificent region enjoys high altitudes, moderate slopes and fertile, volcanic soils.
These unique climatic and soil characteristics levered by the pride and hard work of small coffee producers result in one of the finest coffees in all of Colombia.
Since most of the coffee in Popayan, and in Colombia for that matter, is produced in small farms, Colsuaves sources most of its coffee from mills and producer groups in the region. These coffees are usually pulped, washed and sun dried in the farms before being pooled together into larger lots. This coffee comes forward with a tremendous expression of ripe fruits and sweet walnut tones. Berry tones in the sweet, high-toned aroma. Smooth-bodied, rich and sweetly but intensely acidy, in the cup. It all has to do with the characteristics of the Meseta de Popayán and the dedication and hard work that go into producing this coffee.
Colombia tends to produce mostly arabica beans. Arabica and Robusta are the two main types of coffee beans that are grown in the world. The Arabica is lighter and sweeter, while Robusta is bolder and denser. Colombia grows mostly Arabica beans, giving its beans the light and flowery taste that many coffee lovers crave. Colombia’s coffee is world famous for its flavor and the unmistakeable mild but rich aroma that rises from every brew. That may explain why we’ve been exporting our coffee for almost 200 years and, for most of that time
