When selecting Colombian coffee beans, pay attention to the roast level that suits your taste preferences. Whether you prefer a medium roast with balanced flavors or a dark roast with bold intensity, there's a Colombian coffee waiting to captivate your senses.

Once you've chosen the beans that speak to your coffee-loving soul, it's time to move on to the next step: grinding.

Grind to perfection:

Embrace the ritual of grinding your coffee beans just before brewing. Invest in a high-quality coffee grinder to achieve the desired consistency. For Colombian coffee, a medium grind works well for most brewing methods. Aim for a uniform grind size that allows for optimal extraction and flavor.

Measure and proportion:

To ensure consistency and precision, pay attention to the coffee-to-water ratio. As a general guideline, use 1 to 2 tablespoons of coffee for every 6 ounces of water. However, feel free to adjust this ratio based on your personal taste preferences. Remember, precise measurements are key to brewing the perfect cup.

Choose Your Brewing Method:

At Lattenda, we celebrate the artisanal approach to coffee brewing, embracing the rich flavors and traditions of Colombian coffee. Discover the perfect brewing method that aligns with your passion for craft and authenticity:

  • Pour-Over: Immerse yourself in the artistry of pour-over brewing. Embrace the slow, intentional pour as the water caresses the coffee grounds, revealing the nuanced flavors unique to Colombian coffee. The Hario V60 or Chemex are exquisite tools that perfectly complement the handcrafted experience we advocate for.

  • French Press: Engage your senses with the rustic charm of the French press. As you press the plunger, the essence of Colombian coffee is unleashed, delivering a full-bodied and indulgent cup that speaks to the soul. It's an authentic brewing method that complements the artisanal nature of our coffee.
