Colombian Coffee: Mind The Bean

Last updated on May 9, 2015 by Liza Hawkins

Are you a fan of authentic, sustainable 100% Colombian coffee, with its pronounced aroma and high-grown arabica quality? YES?! Well, this giveaway (sponsored by Café de Colombia Worldwide) is for you!

Colombia Coffee: Mind The Bean

I love the opportunity to help support a movement that’s goal to make things better, especially when it involves something I really enjoy: COFFEE + SUSTAINABILITY. In terms of coffee, when choosing a brand make sure you know your beans. Where they came from, who grew them and how they were grown.

We are proud of our roots. Every Colombian coffee bean holds the pride of thousands of Colombian growers for a job well done. It is the product of the steep Andes Mountains volcanic soils, ideal climate, and the careful hands that pick this coffee every day. It is also an honest commitment to quality and respect for discerning coffee lovers, shared by thousands of growers and more than 400 coffee brand partners around the world.

As part of this promotion, Café de Colombia Worldwide sent me a beans from Nariño & Cauca to try at home, along with a cute single serve French press and a few other goodies (follow me on Instagram and keep tabs on #MindtheBean to find out what). The beans are a medium acidity, high body flavor with slight sweet and citric notes – flavor that packs an amazing aromatic punch when I grind the beans in my mill, and produces a consistent, smooth taste.

Excuse me while I take a sip or two. And, meanwhile, take a peek at this video that’ll give you more about The Bean Bang Theory:

Good stuff, right?

What’s also cool about 100% Colombia coffee is this: it’s not one size fits all. The beans are as diverse as the land! Its varying flavors, tones, acidity and blends represent that important diversity.

  1. I currently use my Keurig – because we switched to one forever ago – but I really want to go back to a regular coffeemaker. AND I’d like to try out a French Press, which we do have.

  2. You know, as much of a coffee love as I am… I’ve never tried a French Press or Cafe de Columbia. WHAT?!

    Apparently, I’m seriously missing out.

    1. You ARE missing out. And chances are if you’ve had 100% Colombian coffee, you’ve tried a variety supported by Cafe de Colombia Worldwide. 🙂

  3. We have a Keurig and a coffee maker. We love coffee! I would love to try the French press too! Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

  4. My favorite way to make coffee is usually however the Starbucks barista hands it to me. 😉 Hahahahaha but for real, I have a Keurig at home that I love, and I use almond creamer and organic sugar!
