South America is the largest coffee producing region in the world with many of its countries wholly dependent on coffee production and export. And thus it is no surprise that it is South American coffee that is found in most daily cuppa's. Colombian coffee is probably the most well known amongst consumers for the Arabica coffee bean while Brazil leads the pack in production of the Robusta bean. While the coffee plant is not native to South America it has certainly thrived and in the case of Colombian coffee has become the unofficial standard by which all coffees are judged.
We at Wilkinson's have carefully chosen our selection of South American coffees to reflect the very best this growing region has to offer.
