Coffee balanced between the acidity of citrus fruits and the sweetness of ripe fruit and nuts.
The single-origin Colombia Supremo Finca la Meseta is an Arabica quality speciality.

It is a coffee grown at an altitude of about 1000m above sea level, which gives sweeter and fruitier notes to our cup of coffee.

This small plantation, located in the Medellin region of Colombia, takes great care with every step, from cultivation to harvest and processing.

The drupes, containing the coffee beans, are harvested using the picking method, i.e. manually, selecting only the cherries that are ripe at the right point.

After that, they are processed using the washed method so that the beans are only dried in the sun at the end of the process. This imparts a fresh note to the extracted coffee.

On the nose, it releases aromas of cocoa and ripe fruit.

While on the palate, a soft body is immediately noticeable that envelops the tongue, along with the sweetness of plum and blackberry and the intensity of 60% chocolate. If left to cool slightly, a citric acidity reminiscent of lemon peel is brought out.

Suitable for

Those looking for a sweet, soft and fresh single origin, balanced by a slight bitterness

Thanks to medium roasting, the carefully selected raw coffee bean can express itself to the fullest, releasing every natural aroma and never being overly bitter. Try it even without sugar, it will be amazing!

The coffee is stored inside a sealed bag, self-protected with a one-way valve, which allows the coffee to degas, without letting in oxygen, which would oxidize it. This makes it possible to keep the coffee beans fresh and aromatic even after several months.

Coffee History

Today we travel to Colombia, one of the most evocative coffee-growing areas in the world, so much so that its landscapes are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Mappa con indicata in grande la zona caffeicola da dove Ernani prende il suo monorigine colombiano ed in piccolo tutte le altre zone caffeicole della Colombiazones take the name of Paisa or Eje Cafetero: rural areas that extend into various departments towards the south of the state, beyond Medellin. The best known are those of:

  • Caldas
  • Quindio
  • Risaralda
  • Tolima
  • Valle del Cauca


Arrival of coffee in Colombia

Eje Cafetero, with perfect climatic conditions, was colonized by the Paisas in the 19th century, during the Colonización Antioqueña.

It reads:

“It is a cultural landscape in which natural, economic and cultural elements are combined with a high degree of heterogeneity in the region, and which constitutes an exceptional case in the world. In this landscape, the human, family and generational efforts of the coffee producers are combined with the permanent support of the institutions.”

Here life flows slowly, in contact with and respecting nature, made up of simplicity and centuries-old cultural traditions.

Coffee has conditioned the economy, lifestyle, traditions, customs and habits of the small historic villages of farmers, who hand down knowledge and skills from father to son.

Initially people rejected coffee, as it takes about 5 years to give the first fruitful harvests, but in 1999 revenues already represented 3.7% of GDP and 37% of agricultural employment.

Their traditional drink consists of an extraction in a fabric filter, in which the ground coffee undergoes multiple passages by hot water, to be served in a large, steaming cup.


When I drink a cup of Colombia Supremo Finca la Meseta I imagine myself in the beautiful spa areas, immersed in the vast plantations of an intense emerald green, embraced by cloud forests, between steep valleys and peaks with glaciers, kissed by the sun and overlooking the national parks of the Andes. 


Here is the hacienda from which we buy our Colombian coffee, from the Finca called La Meseta, which is located south of Medellin in the department of Caldas or Chinchina.

Plantation located between 1000 and 1500 meters above sea level, which produces high quality and specialty coffees, with brands such as Organic, Biological and Rainforest Alliance, very important to us to be sure that our coffees are also sustainable.

And to honor their product, the recognedores, i.e. the pickers of the red berries, always work manually, making a careful selection and selecting only the cherries that are perfectly ripe.

The coffee grown is mostly Arabica, of 5 varieties in particular: Maragogipe, Bourbon, Castillo, Caturra and Typica.

The different soil variables, the forest and the botanical heterogeneity, the climate and the great knowledge and competence of the growers create the conditions for producing an excellent coffee with an intense and soft taste at the same time, with a vast aromatic range, with notes of chocolate, almond, fruit and flowers.


To get the most out of these lands, I suggest you try the espresso or filter coffee, especially using the Aeropress!

The best time for a trip to the Colombian plantations is between April and May, or between October and December.

Icona di contadino baffuto e asino del caffè colombianoOne of Colombia’s strengths has been recognizing the value of marketing and the importance of building its own recognizable brand. Thus, in 1958 the figure of Juan Valdez was born, the farmer who represents Colombian coffees: a very successful icon who, accompanied by his mule Conchita while carrying sacks full of coffee beans, are the symbol of Colombian coffee. A folkloric image that immediately conveys the climate and sensations associated with these precious beans.


Marketing phrases such as “Mountain Grown Coffee” were born around the same time, and the constant promotion of 100% Colombian coffee made Colombia stand out in the minds of consumers around the world.
