Colombia is the third largest coffee-producing country in the world and offers a wide range of geographical conditions and micro-climates that creates a multitude of sweet and delicious cup profiles. Colombia’s wide range of climates also means that harvest times can vary significantly. Due to these varying harvest times — and the Mitaca crop — fresh crop Colombian coffee is available nearly year-round.

 

The Mitaca crop is essentially a second harvest that occurs roughly 6 months after the main crop in most regions. It is a result of moist ocean air rising from both the Pacific and the Caribbean, and the north-to-south orientation of the central mountain ranges.

Colombia can be separated roughly into three major regional clusters.

North- Santander, Norte de Santander and Magdalena, - are typically cultivated at lower altitudes where temperatures are higher. These lots tend to be bolder and sometimes earthy, with a gentler acidity profile and more pronounced body potential, often with chocolate and nut notes.

Central- Antioquia, Cundinamarca, Caldas, Quindío, Risaralda, and Northern Tolima) are typically fruity with great balance. Beyond this, each region exemplifies differences in flavour characteristics.

South- (Cauca, Popayan, Nariño, Huila and Southern Tolima) typically showcase pronounced mouthfeel and body attributes, High sweetness potential, and often accompanied by a brighter acidity profile and consequently brighter fruit notes.
