  • Washed

    Colombia is best-known for its Washed coffees. While the processing details might vary slightly from farm to farm or by association, generally the coffee is picked ripe and depulped the same day, then given an open-air fermentation in tanks or buckets for anywhere between 12–36 hours. The coffee is washed clean of its mucilage before being dried either on patios, in parabolic dryers, solar driers, or mechanically. Some Washed coffees in Colombia are mechanically demucilaged.

Excelso Gran Galope - La Vega

Gran Galope was born after the creation of “Regional Select”, which was our way of highlighting the distinct regional differences we saw coming out of Colombia. We heard from producers that they wanted to sell us more of their coffee, and Gran Galope as a program allows us to buy more and pay more along the larger quality spectrum for high quality coffees from these hardworking men and women in Colombia.

The Producers

Gran Galope lots are Excelso grade coffees (15/16 screen size) that have been cupped and evaluated for their "workhorse" versatility. These lots are expected to have a balance of sweetness, fruity effervescence, and a foundation of cocoa and/or toffee. Most Excelso Gran Galope offerings are a blend of coffees from between 10–30 smallholder farmers and are traceable to the region. Gran Galope selections from Huila are cupped and purchased in Pitalito; selections from Cauca are cupped and purchased in Popayán; and Narińo Gran Galopes are cupped and purchased in both Pasto and La Unión.
