  1. Colombian coffee also has a dark roast used to make rich espresso blends. Remember that the roast of the coffee isn’t actually related to the growth of the coffee. Colombia is famous for its coffee beans, which can be used to make both light roasts and dark roasts.

  2. Roast in coffee refers to the length of time and the degree of temperature that a coffee bean has been roasted. Not to where the coffee was grown.
    Coffee is referred to as light, medium and dark depending on how long and how hot. For instance:
    Light roasted beans = 180°C – 205°C (356°F – 401°F)
    Medium roasted beans = 210°C – 220°C (410°F-428°F)
    Dark Roasted beans are roasted at 240°C (464°F) or even a little higher although they can really start to taste foul if you get too high a temperature.
    Dark roast have slightly less caffeine and less true coffee flavor. The beans basicly begin to taste a bit burnt. They have more oil forced to the surface of the bean.
    Darker roasts have a different taste, slightly less caffeine and more ‘burnt’ taste from the roasting. The beans themselves are starting to change chemically when roasted so long and will show more oil shine on the surface of the bean where a light roast will have a dryer look. For the most caffeine and most coffee flavor? Go for a light to medium roast Colombian.

  3. Not always! Colombian coffee also has a dark roast used to make rich espresso blends. Remember that the roast of the coffee isn’t actually related to the growth of the coffee. Colombia is famous for its coffee beans, which can be used to make both light roasts and dark roasts. Now, the richer and flowery flavor of Colombian coffee beans does make them especially suited for a dark roast, but light roasts made from Colombian beans are also amazing.

  4. Columbian is a variety of coffee that is grown in Columbia. It can be roasted any way you like. If you want to dark roast it, you can. Most Columbian is medium roast, but a fair amount is dark roasted. The packaging or bin should say what the roast is.

    Colombian coffee production is larger than the general denomination known as “Cafe de Colombia”. Colombia produces coffee in more than 550 thousand farms, 90% of them no bigger than 1 acre. These farms are located all over the country, covering 11 latitudes and 8 altitudes. All these independent coffee producing farms are affiliated to the “Colombian Coffee Federation”, arguably the most successful private association of micro producers in the world. Most of these farms grow what is commonly called “Excelso or Supremo Colombian Coffee” from varietals such as “Castillo”, “Colombia” or “caturra”, grown in the “coffee zone region” covered mainly by the departments (states) of Caldas, Risaralda and Quindio. These coffees gave the reputation for sweetness and high acidity that characterizes the brand Cafe de Colombia and is better enjoyed as a medium roast. However, other departments like Santander, Huila and Tolima produce low altitude coffee, about 700 to 1200 mts above sea level that can be roasted darker and considered “espresso type” coffee. Low altitude coffee makes a great espresso if roasted dark and hence, you can indeed have an amazing espresso made of off 100% colombian coffee. If blended with Brazil and Ethiopia, you can get a winning espresso cup with citrus notes in a nutty and berry base.
