To Colombians, coffee is much more than an energizing drink to star your morning; it’s a ritual, a cup contains an excuse to converse, it is also a comforting moment, and a piece of our culture which we hold near our hearts. Colombia has the best mild coffee in the world and we like to tell you why, and moreover, invite you to try and discover it yourself.
In the last few years Colombia has transformed the way we drink coffee from a routine to an experience: coffee shops became places to meet and get educated; producers and baristas assumed their roles as protagonists of the revolution and coffee fincas revived with strength having a better and more visible conscience about the origins of the beans and the importance of the farmers. With this revolution we learned about types, qualities and preparation methods, we filled up with motives to demand a well-served cup and now we want to share all this with you, in the places we know are the best.
