Gran Galope highlights the distinct regional differences of coffees in Colombia. We heard from producers that they wanted to sell us more of their coffee, and the Gran Galope program allows us to buy more and pay more for the higher-quality coffees from these hardworking men and women in Colombia. Gran Galope lots are Excelso-grade coffees (15/16 screen size) that have been cupped and evaluated for their stellar flavor. These lots are known for sweetness, fruity effervescence, and a foundation of cocoa and toffee. Each Gran Galope lot originates from groups o 10–30 smallholder farmers and are traceable to the region. Gran Galope selections from Cauca are cupped and purchased in Popayán; and Nariño.
