Colombia is the second-largest producer of coffee in the world and the largest producer of washed Arabica. The country is known for the high quality of its coffees, and it exports approximately 12.5 million bags annually.
Medellín, the "City of Eternal Spring," is the second-largest city in Colombia and the capital of the department of Antioquia—the birthplace of coffee in Colombia and still its largest growing region. Coffees from Antioquia are known for their medium body and cup profiles that are typically not as fruity or winey as those from other regions. Rather, it produces a smooth, well-balanced cup that can be enjoyed any time of day.
