Colombian Supremo Green Coffee Beans
Colombia is very well known for high quality Colombian Supremo coffee. Around 50% of its exports go to the United States (exporting around 12.5 million bags annually). It’s the second largest producer of coffee globally (and the single largest of washed and Arabica coffee, the only coffee it produces.)
The coffee (of which there are three primary varieties grown in Colombia) is referred to by the region in which it is grown. There are in fact many coffee producing regions in the country. The coffee in Colombia is well sought after and is renown for its wonderfully, delicious taste (produced in abundance).
This type is Supremo (a coffee grading term in Colombia). These coffee beans (with a screen size of 17 and 18) are slightly larger than Excelso beans. This is the largest bean size grading for Colombian coffee. Although it’s entirely possible that the Supremo and Excelso coffee beans are harvested from the same tree, they are sorted by their size. The small, less dense beans and peaberries have been taken out, so you’re left with the highest grade possible Supremo.
