Comparing Single Origin Coffee Beans

Koffee Kult Single Origin Coffee Beans

While there are many different blends of coffee that we offer from various countries across the bean belt, there is also a great demand for single origin coffee beans. The bean belt is the area between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, with the perfect climate to grow the coffee fruit. Single origin coffee beans are grown within a single farm and in a specific geographical region, such as a country. Koffee Kult is here to help you compare the flavors of the different single origin coffee beans across the bean belt, beginning with light to dark.
