- Certifying Authenticity: Colombian Supremo Coffee is very distinguishable. It is one of the lightest colored coffee beans in the arabica family. If you want to ensure that you have pure 100% Colombian Coffee, you should begin by visually inspecting the beans and checking for a pleasant cinnamon color. Additionally, the size of the beans themselves should be relatively larger than their counterparts. Next, make sure to analyze the odor of the coffee beans. Do they have a heady yet invigorating smell? If this is not the case and they do not have a tinge of a nutty aroma, then you might be paying for a lower quality coffee.
Colombian Supremo Coffee History and Processing: Colombian Supremo Coffee was first brought to the mountains of Colombia by Jesuit Missionaries in the form of arabica coffee trees. These trees, known for producing some of the finest coffee in the world, prefer higher altitudes and cooler temperatures. This allowed them to quickly adapt to the country’s varied terrain, and as the trees matured, Colombia’s wonderful year-round climate and abundance of volcanic mountains made it the optimal geographic location ... for the plants to flourish. As these trees began to yield fruit, people began to harvest the cherries for their coffee beans, resulting in the delicious Colombian Supremo Coffee. During harvest, the beans undergo a slow maturation cycle, which directly results in a very flavorful and unique coffee. The fruit of the Arabica tree is packed into sacks immediately upon harvesting and is then sent to a de-pulping machine. After undergoing this process, the coffee is fermented to enhance its distinct characteristics. Twenty-four hours later, the coffee beans are washed with water to remove any impurities. This critical step is what sets apart authentic Colombian coffee from Brazilian Coffee. Once washed, the coffee beans are left under the sun until they are completely dry. During nights or rainy days, the beans are covered to ensure that they retain their characteristic aroma and taste. Today, arabica coffee trees are recognized for producing some of the most pristine gourmet coffee. Through delicate processes and meticulous attention to detail, the seeds and trees once brought to South America have developed into producing the excellent coffee now known as Colombian Supremo Coffee.
