July 2011’s Coffee of the Month: Colombia Reserve

July's Coffee of the Month

For the Month of July, we wanted to offer a Reserve that we haven’t offered in over 5 years to our customers. Camano Island Coffee Roasters only has 2 reserves in stock currently and it’s rare we are able to get the quantity necessary to offer one of them as our “Coffee of the Month” to our prosumers. This month, we were able to secure enough supply of our Colombia Reserve coffee.

Bean Notes:
As one of Camano Island Coffee Roasters’ “Roaster’s Reserve” coffees, the Colombian Excelso is the perfect combination of nuttiness, sweet caramel tones, along with a touch of spice on the undertone. Specifically, the nuttiness shines through. If you’re one of the many that love nutty coffee’s, this coffee will quickly become one of your favorites!


Country Notes:
Colombia has around 46 million people and is the third most populated country in Latin America.  It is bordered to the east by Venezuela and Brazil, to the south by Ecuador and Peru, to the north by the Caribbean Sea, and to the west by Panama and the Pacific Ocean. Colombia is one of the world’s 17 “megadiverse countries” (most biodiverse per unit area).  (see Colombia’s entry on Wikipedia for more information)

Roast Notes:
Our Colombian coffee beans are roasted to a medium/light color.  A lot of people equate Colombian beans with some of the darker roasts around but we’ve found that the flavor is best when roasted to this level.
