This particular type is Excelso; this term is a coffee grading term in Colombia. Excelso coffee beans are large, but slightly smaller than Supremo coffee beans. Excelso coffee beans are a screen size of 15-16. Colombian coffee is graded before shipment according to bean size. It is possible that Supremo and Excelso coffee beans are harvested from the same tree, but they are sorted by it’s size. The greatest volume of exported coffee is Excelso. These beans include good-to-large flat beans and some peaberries.
