What are Supremo coffee beans?

"Supremo" refers to a grading classification for coffee beans, particularly those from Latin American countries like Colombia.

In the coffee industry, beans are graded based on size, with larger beans typically being considered of higher quality. "Supremo" is one of the highest grades for coffee beans, indicating that the beans are larger and more uniform in size compared to lower grades.

What makes Supremo coffee so special?

Size Consistency - Supremo beans are larger and more consistent in size compared to lower-grade beans. This uniformity often indicates better quality control during cultivation and processing.

Enhanced Flavour - Larger beans tend to have a more concentrated flavour profile. Supremo coffee often boasts a rich and nuanced flavour with well-defined characteristics, such as a balanced acidity and distinct aroma.

Brewing Versatility - Due to their size and quality, Supremo beans are versatile and suitable for various brewing methods, including espresso, drip coffee, French press, and cold brew.

High-Quality Standards - The Supremo classification reflects adherence to strict quality standards set by coffee-producing regions. These standards encompass factors such as altitude, climate, cultivation practices, and processing methods.

Consistent Reputation - Supremo coffee has earned a reputation for excellence and consistency among coffee enthusiasts and professionals alike. Its high quality and reliable characteristics make it a popular choice for those seeking a premium coffee experience.

Supremo coffee represents a top-tier category of beans known for their size, quality, and exceptional flavour, making them a special and sought-after option for coffee connoisseurs.

Colombian coffee

Colombia stands as the second-largest global contributor to coffee production, boasting the top spot in washed Arabica beans. Annually, it exports around 12.5 million bags of coffee, with approximately half destined for the United States, while domestically consuming about 2 million bags.

What sets Colombia apart is its geographical diversity, ensuring that coffee production is a year-round affair. Thanks to its vast size and varied terrains, there's always a region in Colombia in full swing with coffee cultivation.

When discussing Colombian coffee, one often encounters the term "Colombia Supremo," denoting the largest bean size available from the country. These beans, classified as Supremo, typically boast a screen size of 17 or 18, slightly larger than the Excelso variety. 

Colombia's coffee production spans across 32 departments, akin to states, and encompasses 22 distinct coffee-growing regions.

Our Colombia Supremo coffee is meticulously sourced from a single region, though this region may vary depending on the shipment time. Nonetheless, what remains consistent is the meticulously crafted cup profile, tailored to meet the unique characteristics of each regional blend.

Sustainability: All of our coffee beans are traceable directly to the farm and the farmer. Our coffees are either Fairtrade Organic (FTO) or Rain Forest Alliance (RFA) certified, or grown as a collective or cooperative to assure a fair wage, investment in the community and good environmental practice. Our coffee bags are recyclable.
