Colombian Huila Excelso Lolo EP Excelso is a coffee grading term in Colombia that is an approximate grade 16, 16/64" diameter. EP stands for European Preparation which describes coffees from which imperfect beans, pebbles and other foreign matter have been removed by hand. Huila is located in the south eastern part of Colombia. This region is characterized by its fertile valleys and snow-capped volcanoes that for millions of years have enriched its soils with volcanic ashes. Huila´s coffee, which results of the work of more than 70 thousand coffee growing families is known for having an exquisite and consistent, balanced taste and aroma.
Colombia's Famous Trademark.
Colombian coffees are supposed to be moderate, with good balance, chocolate tones, some ripe stone fruit, and to be among the most fragrant. You expect a cup with a classic flavour. Well, OK so far with the Huila. It is all of those. But you also expect a crisp acidity, and that's where things go off the tracks. This Huila is low in acidity--more like a Brazilian or Indonesian coffee. That made the cup seem a little richer, with more body than a Colombian coffee should have.
Colombian coffee is often regarded as some of the highest quality coffee in the world. Colombia has traditionally grown arabica beans and its unique geography makes it perfectly suited for producing a delicious, high quality brew.
Colombia’s excellent growing conditions have paired with an aggressive marketing campaign by the National Federation of Coffee Growers (FNC), which has worked since the late 1950’s to bring Colombia’s coffee sector to the forefront of international attention. Colombia has traditionally been second in global coffee production only to Brazil, but has been set back to third by Vietnam’s recent market entry and rapidly expanding production of robusta coffees. Over 500,000 farms, most of them small landholdings of 5 hectares or less3are scattered across the zonas cafeteras, some of the most biologically diverse landscapes in the world.
