The largest yields of coffee beans in the world are produced in Central and South America. Coffee beans from South America generally have a mellow body, with an elegant acidity and delicate yet lingering flavours. But the specific origins of the beans have a distinct effect on their flavour. For instance, coffee beans from Columbia offer seductive caramel top notes and a light, sweet flavour perfect for starting your day with.
South-American beans should have a mild to medium roast to preserve their brightness and downplay any bitterness.They are best enjoyed with breakfast foods, toast or muffins.
