Huila is the largest coffee producing region in Colombia and offers some of its best coffees. Most of these coffees comes from small farms of less than 5 hectares scattered across its mountains. Huila’s location, altitude, rich volcanic soils and a year-round average temperature of 65° F make it an ideal place for growing coffees with excellent attributes. Huila has a full juicy body, bright acidity, chocolate taste and smooth velvety texture.

Colombia Coffee (Rene Magritte)
We hand-roast all our artisan coffees onsite. Each roast batch is individually tailored to bring out the unique qualities of our premium and speciality coffees.
There are different types of coffee beans available, all of which give a different taste to your coffee. In addition, the taste depends on how finely or coarsely you grind the beans.
One espresso is approximately 7 grams of ground coffee. This means that you can brew 143 espressos with one bag of coffee.
- Price per cup = £0.12
- Required per cup = 7 to 8 grams
- Number of cups from 1kg package = 125 - 143 cups
For filter coffee, the coffee beans are finely ground. Such fine grinding is suitable for a filter coffee machine.
- Required per cup = 10 to 12 grams
- Number of cups from 1kg package = 83 - 100 cups
You can use this coffee-to-water ratio to determine the ideal ratio for a cup of coffee. The default ratio is 1:16; however, you can adjust the taste and strength of the drink to suit your needs. If you reduce the ratio, for example to 1:14 or 1:13, the brew will be stronger. Conversely, if you increase the ratio, to 1:17 or 1:18, the coffee will be weaker.
Normal cup quantity is 120ml of water. The more water you add the more watered down your coffee will be unless you use more grind coffee.
