If the best tea comes from China and the best wine comes from France, then the best coffee comes from, without a doubt, Columbia. Colombian Coffee is a medium-roasted coffee of the finest quality. It offers a well-balanced flavour and a mesmerisingly sweet aroma. Deep, rich, and strong, our Colombian Coffee is roasted using the state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system, which primarily uses convection heat transference to make this brew not only flavoursome but also unique.
Colombia produces about 12% of the world’s coffee, fourth after Brazil, Vietnam and Indonesia. Many Colombian coffee farmers grow at altitudes of 1,000 to 2,000 metres, accounting for the well-known acidity of Colombian Coffee Bean, a quality which is to the taste of many. Is it to yours, too?
Here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, we are immensely proud of our very special Colombian Coffee. It is no real wonder, then, that this tasty beverage is our most popular coffee. Period.
Colombian Coffee has long been regarded as the highest quality coffee in the world. And with a good reason, too. The country itself boasts some of the most biologically diverse landscapes of any coffee growing area, with over 500,000 farms, most of which small landholdings of 5 hectares or less, scattered across numerous regions.
No one knows exactly when coffee arrived in Colombia but most historians believe it coincided with the arrival of the European Jesuit priests in the 17th Century. However, the first shipments of Colombian coffee did not travel overseas until 1835, when just 2,500 pounds of coffee was imported to the United States.
Three decades later and Colombian Coffee had emerged as the dominant export crop from the country, which had at that point attained independence from Spain. By 1875, Colombia was exporting some 170,000 bags to America and Europe, a sharp increase. In 1992, exports of Colombian Coffee topped at 17,000,000 bags, an even sharper increase and one that is not drastically dissimilar to statistics today.
Nowadays, Colombian Coffee is often propped up by the Colombian Coffee Growers Federation (FNC), the largest rural non-profit organisation in the world which was founded in 1927 to represent and defend the interests of Colombian Coffee Growers. Its members, elected by the growers themselves, communicate with their constituents and meet annually to carry out important duties. The FNC exports approximately 30% of Colombian coffee, making it the largest exporter of coffee in the nation.
Most Colombian Coffees are from high quality Arabica beans. Our very own Colombian Coffee Beans is no exception. Buy only the best of the best; enjoy our Colombian Coffee today.
