Rare An icon for our rare genre coffee.

Rare

The world of coffee is like a pyramid. All of the coffee that Colonna selects and curates sits right up the top of that pyramid. The coffees in this genre are the glint at the very tip of the apex. These coffees are sought after and by their very nature are in short supply.

Our current rare beans

Vitaliano Merino


As an origin, Ecuador is evolving — with a greater push towards flavour focused, high-scoring microlots. Our new award-winner from farmer Vitaliano Merino — grown on just 7 hectares — sits at the forefront of this new movement. It’s the first Ecuadorian offering we’ve featured at Colonna — and a fitting addition to the Rare genre.

Expect notes of nectarine, white grape and guava from Vitaliano Merino, towards a milk chocolate finish.
