Colombian Jazz Speciality Blend
The Colombian Jazz, a Great Taste award winner from 2022, is our favourite and most popular speciality coffee blend.
The very best of Colombia; ethically-sourced beans from the Huila region of Colombia roasted to give a full-bodied mouthfeel with rich chocolate and caramel undertones and a pleasant cherry acidity.
It makes a fantastic coffee however you choose to brew it, although we particularly love it in an espresso-based drink.
Introducing Colombian Jazz, our most popular award-winning speciality coffee blend.
Ethically-sourced from the verdant landscapes of Colombia, our popular Colombian Jazz blend consists of Rainforest Alliance-certified coffee beans and is a testament to our commitment to quality and sustainability.
Originating from groups of smallholders primarily based within the Huila region in the South West of Colombia. This area 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 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.
We are very proud of this coffee, as we have spent a lot of time perfecting the roast profile. We have roasted it to bring the chocolate and caramel notes through, and with careful roasting, we have managed to maintain the pleasant cherry finish. This is a complex roast that will reward careful extraction. It is good 4 days after roasting but hits its best 10 to 14 days after roasting as the balance of all the flavour notes align, and will keep very well.
It’s a real ‘go-to’ coffee for all coffee lovers. An intense espresso, beautifully sweet stretched a little with water, and makes a perfect flat white! Dive into the world of Colombian Jazz coffee, where every cup is a journey to Colombia’s coffee heartlands.
Origin of Colombian Coffee Beans
Colombian coffee is renowned for its exquisite taste and high quality. Its origins can be traced back to the 17th century when Jesuit priests brought the first coffee seeds to the country. The first documented evidence of coffee in Colombia dates back to 1730, and by the early 19th century, coffee was being grown commercially in the country.
The geographical conditions of Colombia with its fertile volcanic soil, reliable rainfall, and steady temperature, provide the perfect environment for coffee cultivation. The unique climatic conditions result in coffee beans with a balanced acidity and a rich, full-bodied flavour, which is why Colombian coffee is sought after worldwide.
In the early 20th century, the Colombian government began promoting coffee cultivation as a way to boost the nation’s economy. This led to the establishment of the National Federation of Coffee Growers in 1927, which has been instrumental in promoting Colombian coffee on a global scale. Today, Colombia is the world’s third largest producer of coffee, and its coffee is considered some of the best in the world.
