We’re excited to be bringing you a new Colombia coffee for the season. A few months ago we talked a bit about the history of Colombia coffee.

Our newest Colombia coffee is called Colombia Huila Regional Select and comes from Cafe Imports. Regional Select is a new project from the importer with a goal to highlight the unique profiles of coffee found in specific microregions within Colombia. The regions they are currently highlighting are Huila, Narino, Cauca, and Tolima.
