Colombian family farms produce two coffee harvests a year. The impact of coffee bean origin can be detected in the flavour: beans grown in the south have citrus notes, those from the central area are fruity and herbal, while beans from the north have traces of nuts and chocolate.
Coffee beans are seeds that grow inside of a coffee cherry. We usually only use beans from the cherry but actually a lot of the taste of the coffee comes from the fruit. During recent year or so, the coffee world has realized that we are able to use the fruit as well. I think we’re on a verge of a real game changer.
