Colombian coffee is among the most recognizable and most dynamic in the world,
with multiple growing regions whose distinct yet consistently crowd-pleasing
profiles reflect the various microclimates that exist in this large country. We source
workhorse coffees from various of these growing regions, looking for a cup that
contains a nice balance of sweetness, fruity effervescence, and a foundation of
cocoa and/or toffee.
Most Gran Galope offerings are a blend of coffees from
between 10 and 30 smallholder farms, each with comparable cup characteristics
and score. Coffees from Huila are cupped and purchased in Pitalito; coffees from
Cauca are cupped and purchased in Popayán; and coffees from Nariño are cupped
and purchased in both Pasto and La Unión.
