About the bean

Our new crop of Excelso hails from the Huila region of Colombia, a producer region prized for so many things: its terroir, the amount of coffee it produces and the quality of its product. Coffee from Huila is distinguished by a Denomination of Origin status (the same distinction enjoyed by champagne). Offerings from here are typically delicate in profile, buoyed by a sweet and fruity character, a bright acidity, medium body and caramel aroma.

Once you go Huila, you go back and back again.
