Colombia Supremo 'La Valle Verde'


For 75 years, the Colombian Coffee Federation has been one of the world's most successful organizations that supports more than half a million Colombian coffee farmers. This is one reason why Colombia produces rich, gourmet coffee that is the highest grade and quality.

Colombia Supremo La Valle Verde coffee is hand harvested and immediately processed using a washing method that removes the pulp and skin from the bean while the fruit is still fresh. The beans are then soaked to loosen the excess pulp and washed again to remove excess. Since the CCF constantly monitors the coffee process, Supremo is destined to become exceptional. Our Colombia Supremo is light-medium roasted to perfection to create a brew that yields a heady aroma, a very rich flavor, and an excellent balance of body and acidity.
From the Central Valley of Colombia, these wet-processed, Arabica beans provide a smoothly balanced body with acidic brightness, encompassing your cup with rich coffee flavors that are lightly sweet. With excellent balance, this Colombian coffee offers a clean-tasting cup free of defects.

A Very Lovely Cup
July 29, 2014
I purchased this coffee bean because of the "single-origin, wet processed" claim. I was slightly hesitant about the taste, sometimes Colombian coffee isn't rich enough in coffee flavour for me, but with La Valle Verde I needn't worry! This roast is smooth, packed with flavour, and has become my "go-to" coffee!

For the coffee lover in you......
July 16, 2014
I have a friend who went to Columbia and brought me back five pounds of Colombian coffee. I was hooked immediately on the aroma, the fine texture of the grind and the superb taste. For years, I sacrificed quality for convenience and used the popular machine with the prepackaged cups of assorted coffees. I tried them all and was never pleased with the acidity of most of the brands. I love my coffee black, unflavored and without sugar. In other words, I want a coffee that is dark, rich and smooth. I found the Colombia Supremo satisfied all my needs and is a quality coffee with the best taste I have experienced in a very long time.Each time I reach for my coffee package, I look forward to the aroma almost as much as the drinking of this fine blend. Foreplay with the aroma; satisfaction with the drinking!

Bye, Bye, store bought beans!
March 2, 2014
My torture of using store bought beans has come to an end! Coming from a large city to a small rural area meant the end of custom roasted beans. I couldn't live using store bought coffee anymore - life is too short. Being a whole bean, black coffee drinking snob (things got so bad drinking store bought beans that I had to start using cream) I had to find good, no great, beans again. The Colombian is so smooth. My husband loves it as do I. I am delighted with the quality of the product.

This roast is quite mild, so if you like a real bold flavor, you may have to make it a little stronger than you may be used to. Has a absolutely wonderful aroma when you grind it.

Best Coffee For Lattes

We make Lattes about twice a week and it has been very difficult to find a coffee that is rich and smooth enough gor our tastes. Trial and error had become very expensive. I had been buying my syrup from Coffee AM for a while so thought I would give their coffee a try and are we glad we did. Just by using their written description we got the perfect coffee the first time. Shipping is fast too.

It is obvious a highly skilled Roast Master prepared these beans. My first cup was also a pleasant surprise. The flavor is so rich and full. My complements to all the staff for a wonderful experience. This was my first purchase and it will not be my last. Congrats to the Roast Master.

Good Coffee (but pretty standard)
January 9, 2011
I like this coffee. It's tasty and rich. Better than your everyday Folgers or Maxwell House... But nothing to write home about. It reminds me a lot of Starbuck's Breakfast Blend (which is a good blend of South American beans). The beans are large and sticky, the way you want a good Columbian. It's a good "everyday" coffee but not very adventurous.
Pros:
Good "everyday" coffee Excellent morning brew, aromatic! Blends well with Kona or to weaken down a dark roast
Cons:
A little on the boring side Compares easily with standard coffees Not very good iced
