Best Quality Coffee
WHY CAFE SOCIAL HAS THE BEST QUALITY COFFEE.
We follow the strictest regulations for quality as determined by the Colombian Coffee Federation (FNC) so that our customers are guaranteed a quality product.
The highest quality and best coffee comes from Arabica coffee trees. Cafe Social coffee, grown in Armenia, Quindio, is Arabica coffee.
Only the red berries are picked as the color indicates ripeness. Handpicking the coffee is the only way to really ensure that the mature berries are selected.
WEATHER, FERTILE SOIL & ALTITUDE
The combination of the high altitude, fertile soil and specific weather conditions of the Andes makes Cafe Social coffee so special.
Colombian coffee is washed several times during the process from plant to cup. Once the red berry is removed from the bean, the coffee beans are washed several times before they are dried. Washing the beans is essential in producing a smooth, bold cup of coffee.
The cleaning, storage and roasting process is regulated by the FNC.
SELECTION & SUPERVISION
Beans pass along a coveyor belt where any defects are removed by hand.
Once the best green coffee beans are selected, the FNC decides if the coffee is good enough to roast.
Because green coffee beans can only be stored for a month, we are always roasting freshly picked coffee. We only import small order so that our coffee doesn't stay long in storage.
Once the beans have been approved by the FNC, the coffee is then roasted by a professional certified roaster who has been authorized by the FNC.
The roasted coffee is taken to the laboratories of the FNC.
FINAL TESTING & APPROVAL FROM THE FNC.
FNC agents analyzed and "cup" the coffee before it is packed to be exported internationally.
The FNC has very high quality standards and before approval, checks for water content, aroma, acidity, smoothness and flavor. Finally, the coffee is ready to be packed and distribuited to our happy customers.
