About the bean

In general, Colombian coffee tends to have a slight hazelnut taste, a sharp aroma with rich body and a medium-to-high acidity. For some time now, especially since offers from private exporters have become more consistent, we have noticed a remarkable quality upgrade in exports of Colombian coffee.

Grown in the Tolima region, the Elcelso is one of Colombia's high-quality specialty coffee beans and is quite possibly the most popular coffee globally. Distinguished by its full body, rich flavour, and medium-high acidity, this classic coffee is perfect for any time of the day or evening.
