Colombian Excelso Palermo
What is it?
Excelso Palermo, a large bean produced in the Huila Mountain region of Colombia. A diverse landscape of windy valleys, deep rainforests and snowy peaks, all within the one region. Huila is the biggest coffee producing region of Colombia. Its high quality green beans make a well balanced brew that is loved worldwide. Excelso is the first harvest from the coffee plant, giving it its unique size and taste.
Colombian coffee is graded according to bean size: Supremo and Excelso beans are harvested from the same coffee trees, but they are sorted by size. Excelso coffee beans are large, but slightly smaller than Supremo coffee beans.
