This is delicious Colombian coffee comes from the Timaná sub-region of Huila. Timaná is located in between the two main branches of the Colombian Andes Mountains which provide excellent weather patterns for growing high quality specialty coffee.
For many years, Colombia was the number-one world producer of washed coffees, and the second-largest producer to Brazil. In 2000, Colombia was surpassed by Vietnam, and then the rust infestation of 2008 set them back significantly. Today, they are in the top five countries with the highest coffee production with roughly 10 million bags per year. Colombia has over 600,000 farms, most of them farmed by small landholders with less than 5 acres nestled in the hills at roughly 1,200 to 2,000 meters above sea level.
This particular coffee is an "Excelso" grade, which means the beans are large, yet slightly smaller than "Supremo".
