If you're looking for some quality beans with a very mild taste then this is for you. The bean quality is good but there's nothing remarkable about it. It's a very traditional and somewhat bland Colombian. You really need a find grind, around a 13:1 ratio, and at least 200-205F water to get some flavor out of it. But if more complex coffees aren't your thing then you might love this. It's certainly worth a try.
Colombia = Coffee
In our minds, Colombia and coffee may already go hand-in-hand, but there's a great reason for that. Colombian grown arabica beans are known for their incredible flavor!
The family estate farm nurturing the organically grown beans for Wild Coffee Colombia is about more than just picking coffee cherries at the optimal time. They are giving valuable opportunities to many families, providing education, and widening horizons.
Growing For The Environment
Making sure not to contaminate the rainforest environment, the coffee plantations that these single origin, fair trade beans are grown on provide homes for countless animals, creeks, plants, and flowers. This is what sustainability is all about.
Full Of Flavors
With a wide range of naturally occurring and mouth-watering flavors of sweet chocolate, vanilla, and almonds, Wild Coffee Colombia is a medium roast you'll surely fall for.
After all, it's grown with love so you can love what you brew.

Wild Colombia Coffee FAQ
Keep it stored away from light and heat in an air tight container. Don't refrigerate your beans and only freeze your beans if you don't plan on using them soon. Then make sure you triple wrap them.
The darker the roast, the more you will see the shiny coffee oils on the exterior of the beans. This is a sign of freshness as most mass-produced coffee, because it is stale, does not have these yummy coffee oils still on the beans because they have dried out. The more you roast a coffee bean, the more you draw out the coffee oils that are inside the bean. Lighter roasts still have the oils inside the beans, which makes them look "dry," while the darker roasts will shimmer with wonderful shiny coffee oils on their exterior.
We don't... in a lab, that is. Our beans are fresh roasted locally in Austin, Texas by an organic coffee roaster and are sourced fair trade and single-origin. They are also mostly wet processed (Sidamo is dry process on raised beds). In our extensive human tests, mold or toxins have never been an issue with our bean, even when we've tested consuming beans that were stored for 2 months in the cabinet!
This is actually a topic under much debate. A lot of people misspell ‘Colombia’ because it sounds like ‘Columbia’ when it’s spoken out loud.
When you're referring to the South American country that borders Venezuela, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and Panama, the correct spelling is: Colombia.
All Wild Coffee and Wild Cold Brew products are fresh roasted each Monday morning. We pick them up from the roaster Wednesdays (this gives the coffee a day to "rest" as it needs to) and send out packages that afternoon and Thursday!
