Colombia is the second-largest producer of coffee in the world and the largest producer of washed and Arabica coffees. It’s well known for the high quality of its coffee. “Excelso” is a grading term for exportable coffee from Colombia, not related to variety or cupping profile. Excelso coffee beans are large, but slightly smaller than Supremo coffee beans. Colombian coffee is graded before shipment according to bean size. Supremo and Excelso coffee beans can be harvested from the same tree, but they are sorted by size. Excelso accounts for the greatest volume of coffee exported from Colombia.
- Roaster’s Notes: This Colombian bean in our Morning Subshine light roast is a community favorite breakfast roast. Not to limit its quality in a light roast, this offering is delicious roasted medium and dark.
