En god, "standard" Colombia i mørke klær med en brenning som passer godt til espressomaskin, mokkakanne o.l. Denne bringer, oss som levde da, tilbake til 90-tallets forrykende og forførende smaksopplevelser med espressobrent kaffe fra Colombia. Nye brukere vil heller ikke kunne forholde seg likegyldige.

FNC helps improve income of coffee growers and maintains high export standards
Dear customers, partners and friends:
As part of the strategies to improve profitability of producers and with the aim of liberalizing the market, Colombia’s National Coffee Growers Committee recently authorized exports, through clearly differentiated channels, of coffee byproducts, a measure that will not affect at all the high quality of “Excelso” beans that has contributed to the renown and positioning of Café de Colombia in the global industry.
It is important to note that this measure seeks to increase profitability of Colombian coffee growers and improve their income basket, giving them the opportunity to access specific segments and niches of local and international markets.
Colombia will maintain the high standards to control quality of all export Excelso coffee. Moreover, the Colombian Coffee Growers Federation (FNC), through its logistics operator Almacafé, will obligatorily issue a Quality Certificate only for Excelso coffees, whose bags will be labeled as Excelso Café de Colombia.
Lower quality coffees will be marketed as Product of Colombia and will not have any certificate.
