The world needs balance. In all things. When it comes to coffee, there is nothing quite like a well-balanced medium roast. Just enough character to get the day started, and just enough body to sooth the soul. We knew that in our travels about the world for the finest medium roast coffee, we needn't look any further than Colombia.

This classic artisan bean is one of the most popular in the world for its consistent flavor and smooth finish. This bean is the ideal balance of fruity sweetness and earthy milk chocolate boldness. 

The high altitudes and ideal range of micro-climates support year round growth of quality coffee in abundance. "Supremo" refers to the size of the bean, which is larger compared to Colombia's "Excelso" variety. These beans are so reputable because their combination of size and altitude make for an intense, flavor enriched bean. It is perhaps the most recognized bean in the world, but often misidentified in packaging. 

You see, Colombian Supremo beans are so good that they are widely used to blend with inferior coffee beans (especially other Colombian varieties). It is an important distinction to claim a product is 100% Colombian "Supremo" rather than what is more commonly seen - 100% Colombian. 

Although this bean is good at just about every roast level, we believe it thrives at a medium roast. Expect orange-like citrus balanced with a earthy/nutty body.
