This Pure Colombian Huila offers the best of Colombian coffee and is suitable for a range of coffee brewing equipment including: cafetiere, filter, percolators, Aeropress, siphons and most automated machines.
Colombian coffees have a tendency to be moderate, with good balance, chocolate tones, some ripe stone fruit, and to be some of the most fragrant. These beans from the Huila region are all of those without the acidity and bitterness frequently associated with Colombian coffees.
Huila is located in the south eastern a part of Colombia. This region is characterized by its fertile valleys and snow-capped volcanoes that for millions of years have enriched its soils with volcanic ashes. Huila’s coffee, the result of the work of more than 70 thousand coffee growing families, is known for having an exquisite and consistent, balanced taste and aroma. This creates a cup that is richer, with more body and smoothness than a other Colombian coffee tends to offer.
We recommend 7 – 10 grams (1 to 2 heaped dessertspoons) per cup of coffee, adjust according to taste. Allow heated water to come off the boil before brewing for 2 to 4 minutes. Serve the coffee immediately once brewed, ideally in a warm cup.
Store the beans in an air-tight container and keep in a cool, dry, location. Consume within 3 weeks for maximum enjoyment.
