Colombia is the second largest producer of Arabica in the world after Brazil.
Coffee has been the country's main export crop since the mid-1830s. Colombia is an ideal country for growing coffee due to the mountainous terrain and tropical microclimate.
Colombian coffee are crucial for the country's economy, with about 875,000 hectares planted with coffee in 590 municipalities and 14 growing regions. Most green coffee beans in Colombia are produced on small farms (60% of Colombian farmers grow less than one hectare of coffee). The drying process in Colombia is unique: small farmers spread parchment on the flat roofs of their homes to dry in the sun. Coffee drying greenhouses and parabolic tents are also used.

Range of Colombian coffee beans
The green coffee beans from Colombia which are grown in warmer, northern and lower altitude zones, such as the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, the Peria, Casanare, Santander and northern Santander mountains, have lower acidity and a denser consistency.
Colombian coffee beans from the more southern areas of Narino, Cauca, Willa and southern Tolima grow at high altitudes, closer to the equator, giving them higher acidity and desired sweetness.
The largest central region around Medellin – Antioquia covers almost 14,000 square kilometers and is known as the Golden Colombian Triangle of coffee growing. Coffee beans from the central region are known for their full body, exquisite taste, and high acidity.
