Colombian Jazz – organic, fair trade coffee beans
£4.80 – £19.90
Colombian Jazz is our latest roast and one of our favourites at the moment. The very best of Colombian fair trade, organic beans from the Huila region of Colombia roasted to give a roast with full bodied rich chocolate – caramel undertones with a pleasant cherry acidity.
We have roasted this to a medium plus bringing in the chocolate caramel notes through and with careful roasting we have managed to maintain the amazing fruit acidity so this is a complex roast that will reward careful extraction, it’s drinkable 4 days after roasting but hits its best 10 to 14 days after roasting as the balance of all the flavor notes align and will keep very well. It’s awesome in a flat white, and will make a great Aeropress, cafetiere or pour over. Enjoy!
Note: We charge a flat rate rate of £2.60 for delivery and always ship within 2 days of roasting, typically 2-6 days after placing your order.

Colombia, known for its high quality coffee, is the second largest producer of coffee in the world and the largest producer of washed Arabica coffee. There are primarily three varieties grown in Colombia and the coffee is referred to by the region in which is grown. Colombian coffee is graded before shipment according to bean size. This particular type is Excelso – screen size 15-16. Excelso is quite large, but smaller than Supremo and well known for its beautiful sweetness in the cup.
Huila is a region in the south west of Colombia that sits between the Eastern and Central mountain ranges. It is also home to Colombia’s second highest peak: the Nevado del Huila volcano. This region has all the attributes that are needed to produce an exceptional coffee. Volcanic soils, high altitude, plenty of rainfall and forests that provide shade. Traditional farming methods are still used to produce this world-renowned high quality coffee. Organic and fair trade certified, this coffee has been roasted at Iron & Fire to bring out its full bodied feel, chocolatey flavours and sweetness in the cup.
