How far do we go for a better cup of Colombian coffee?
Six thousand feet – straight up. Sounds extreme, we know. But high atop the majestic Andes, in a rugged landscape of simmering volcanoes, is where the finest coffee beans in Colombia like to grow. And just as there are no shortcuts through the dirt paths that crisscross the sheer slopes, we take none when it comes to nurturing these treasured cherries to gourmet perfection.
This Colombian marvel erupts on the palate with a juicy feel and robust flavors, a testament to the hearty riches of volcanic soils. Its remarkable finish, dry with hints of walnut, lifts this superior coffee into a class of its own. One sip and you’ll agree it’s worth every step of the climb.
I'll always remember my first coffee tasting. As a partner (employee) at Starbucks I think it's something that stays with you. I tasted our Breakfast Blend with a slice of Lemon Drizzle Loaf. To this day any time I'm introducing someone to the method of tasting coffee I'm always taken back to that afternoon, how I felt (nervous and excited – it was my first day!) and more importantly, what I tasted!
Coffee tastings are our way to share with you the different coffees we offer. Everyone is different and holding a tasting is always an interesting experience – someone may pick up on some herbal flavours you hadn't noticed – or a great food pairing can really change the way you taste and enjoy a particular coffee.
