Colombian Coffee - Don Jose – Supremo Arabica - Sample Set 75g
Don Jose Smooth Roast is roasted just passed a medium roast and before the second crack which really brings out the complexity and fruity tones to this magical bean. Don Jose Dark Roast is roasted beyond the second crack which brings out a rich depth and chocolatey aroma to this coffee. Don Jose Special Roast is our signature roast used exclusively by us here at Colco Coffee. We have developed a blend of two roasts using the same Supremo bean to really bring you something special. Don Jose Special Roast incorporates both the Dark Roast and Smooth Roast into one product to give the best of both worlds. Don Jose is a favourite among many coffee lovers and is where it all began. This coffee is truly brilliant due to the supreme quality of every bean and roast technique which helps to maintain a consistent profile. The perfect morning coffee and after dinner treat.

What are the traditional brew methods?
Colombian Coffee is traditionally prepared using a colador (cloth filter) or by boiling the coffee grounds with Panela (Raw Sugar Cane) over heat, Tinto is the name given to a small black coffee.
Due to the complexity of our Colombian Supremo Arabica, many customers prefer to keep things simple brewing their coffee and drinking it black or with a splash of milk/milk substitutes.
We love the Supremo and its versatility. We recommend the Special Roast for Espressos, Filter, Moka pots & Cafetieres.
