Historically, Colombia has been shattered by various periods of violence and set-backs. However, in the past 20 years, Colombia has leaped to becoming an economic powerhouse in Latin America. On the quest for distinguished coffees, you simply can't pass Colombia. Its quality reputation stems from hard work and excellent terrain.
Colombia, the world's best-known producer of coffee, ranks second worldwide in yearly production. Colombia takes this position seriously and works very hard to maintain a high standard of excellence. The result is consistently good coffee grown carefully and with great pride on thousands of small family coffee farms across the country. An extremely rugged landscape provides the perfect natural environment for the growth of the coffee. But a terrain so rugged has also made it historically difficult to transport the harvested coffee beans to production and shipment centers. Even today, this is often done by mule or Jeep. Such care and attention results in consistently good, mild coffees, with a well-balanced acidity. Colombian Supremo, the highest grade, has a delicate, aromatic sweetness while Excelso Grade might be softer and slightly more acidic.
For over 15 years we have strived to provide you with the highest quality, craft roasted specialty coffees from around the world. All coffee is manually roasted, never "burned". Try us, you'll like us!
Overlooking the beautiful Sierra Valley near Frenchmens Lake is where we roast coffees from all over the world.
Roasting is done in small batches which allows us to have a quality focused roast bringing out the optimum flavor of the different origins that we offer. The great taste will prove itself in each cup you drink. If you enjoy life and coffee like we do then the few cents more per cup from what you are drinking now for this type of specialty coffee is well worth it.
We appreciate a superb cup of coffee whether we are at home or at a coffee shop and that is why we started roasting coffee over a decade ago; we know that others have this appreciation as well. When you have perfected something you love the next step is to share it with others.
We invite you to share this wonderful experience and become part of our coffee community!
