In Our Roastery
We featured this coffee at several Coffee Fest shows this year as a way to demonstrate small changes in profile design. Using a regional single-origin coffee across multiple roast levels is a great way to maximize your roasted offerings while maintaining a lean green coffee inventory. Tasted side by side, many show attendees didn't believe that the light roast and the dark roast of this coffee were the same green.
As one of Colombia's most unique and complex regions of coffee production, Huila is a favorite of ours on the cupping table. When we first tasted it as a purchase sample, we were drawn to its sweetness and fruity characteristics. It cupped like a natural processed coffee, but featured a sparkling clean body and perfumed aroma.
In Your Lineup
This coffee has a home on our menu across many roast levels for our toll roasting customers. We offer it as a light, a medium, and a dark roast. Not only is it versatile across roast levels, but it’s also a great regional cup that highlights the dynamic flavors of the Huila growing region. When someone asks for a sample, we default to a medium roast profile to bring out what's great about this coffee: sweetness, texture, and total approachability. It's the ultimate crowd-pleaser.

Located in southwestern Colombia, Huila is nestled in-between the Central and Eastern ranges of the Andes, with the middle area called the Magdalena Valley. The variation in elevation results in Huila being one of the country’s most unique and complex regions of coffee production. Its terroir, climate, and harvest cycles all contribute to the quality of coffee produced here. The most impressive quality behind the coffees coming out of Huila lies in the people producing them. While Huila accounts for nearly 20% of the country’s production, 80% of coffee producers operate on less than three hectares.
