Coffee produced in Colombia, a country in South America known for being one of the world’s leading coffee producers and exporters. Colombian coffee is famous for its quality, smooth flavor, and balance, and it is grown in various regions of the country, each with unique flavor characteristics due to its climate, altitude, and soil.

Coffee varieties

The production process
Colombian Coffee
1. Harvesting: The coffee harvesting season in Colombia generally occurs in two main periods known as “main harvests” and “secondary harvests.” Farmers hand-select ripe coffee beans, which involves picking only the coffee beans that have the right color and maturity.
2. Depulping: After harvesting, coffee beans undergo the depulping process, where the pulp is separated from the coffee bean. This can be done mechanically or manually.
3. Fermentation: Coffee beans, after being depulped, undergo a fermentation process in water for a specific period to remove any remaining pulp and mucilage residues.
4. Washing: After fermentation, the coffee beans are washed and dried to remove any remaining pulp and stop the fermentation process.
5. Drying: Washed coffee beans are spread out in the sun or dried in mechanical dryers until they reach the appropriate moisture level, typically around 11-12%.
6. Dry milling: After drying, coffee beans go through a dry milling process that involves removing any impurities or defects.
7. Storage: Coffee beans are stored in sacks or airtight containers to maintain their freshness before being shipped to roasters or exporters.
8. Roasting: Green coffee beans are roasted in specialized roasters to different roast levels based on the roaster’s preferences and the type of coffee desired. Roasting is a critical step that influences the flavor and aroma of the coffee.
9. Grinding: After roasting, coffee beans are ground into different particle sizes based on the desired brewing method, such as espresso, French press, or drip.
10. Brewing: Finally, the ground coffee is prepared for consumption using various methods, such as espresso, pour-over, French press, among others.
