Coffee Growing in Colombia
Colombia produces about 12% of the world's coffee production, which positions the country as the third-largest coffee supplier in the world (after Brazil and Vietnam). The country has an excellent reputation for controlling the quality of the coffee it exports, which explains the relatively higher price of the coffee.
The coffee plantations in Colombia grow at altitudes of 1200-2000 mts and stretches along the Cordillera of Los Andes from north to south in diverse climatic conditions.
Due to the geographical size of Colombia, the harvest season varies between regions in the country: in some places, the harvest season takes place between September and January, while in other parts of the country the harvest takes place between April and August. Colombian coffee comes in two main types: Supremo and Excelso, indicating the size of the coffee beans; Supremo is the larger (screen 17-19) and Excelso is the smaller(screen 14-16).
Colombia's incredible success in producing large and consistent quantities of quality coffee places the country at the top of the commercial market and is considered number one in the world's top choice.
