Rich flavor, notes of caramel and dried fruit
In Colombia, the Andes Cordillera is divided into three mountain chains, creating the ideal conditions for growing quality coffee. The different combinations of soil, altitude and climate make this territory unique, and coffee can be harvested here twice a year.
The aroma is rich: the medium-full body enhances the perfect balance of sweetness, bitterness and acidity. There are surprising notes of caramel and nuts, with a delicate hint of chocolate and toast.
illy Monoarabica Colombia meets all the standards of the Federación Nacional de Cafeteros, and has obtained the PGI (Protected Geographic Indication) logo, an accreditation recognised worldwide as a guarantee of a product’s origin and quality.
Our Monoarabica’s are very carefully selected varieties of coffee. They are reference points that enable coffee lovers to take a journey of discovery, exploring the characteristics of the singular illy blend through the 9 individual Arabica coffees that are used to create it.
These coffees have very specific attributes, but because they are natural products, their characteristics can vary with each harvest, due to climatic and environmental factors. This means we have to constantly monitor and evaluate all the coffee we select. The beans that make up each Monoarabica are only selected by illy when their sensorial profile satisfies our expectations and they meet the high quality standards illy is famous for.
The processes of harvesting and production are subject to seasonal conditions that are very different to the rhythms of industrial production. This means that the current availability of some of the products may be limited, possibly for long periods
