The Coffee – Colombia Acevedo Select

The Colombia Acevedo Select is an Excelso grade Arabica coffee bean from the town of Acevedo, in the Huila department of South-West Colombia. The Huila region is one of the largest production regions in Colombia, with Acevedo being one of its most productive towns.

This Colombia origin coffee is comprised of a regional blend of high-quality arabica coffee from local, family-owned farms, located in the communities of San Isidro, La Palma, Las Brisas, El Recreo, and El Silencio. These producers collaborate with the exporter to improve the farming practices and are matched due to their exceptional quality of coffee processing and care for their farms.

‘Excelso’ is a grading term used for coffee exported from Columbia, not related to the coffee variety or cupping score, but the size of the green arabica bean. These high-grade beans are hand-sorted to remove any defective beans or foreign material before export.

The Region – Acevedo

Located in the southern part of the Huila department, the municipality and town of Acevedo is known as the strongest coffee production area of Colombia. It is naturally framed by the eastern mountain chain of the Northern Andes and the Serrania de la Ceja branch, leading to a broken topography with multiple valleys.
