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.

How this works

We select one special coffee at a time to show case in each genre. As the coffee harvesting seasons change and new lots arrive at the roastery we change the coffee we are showcasing. Coffees change every 5-8 weeks and information about which coffee we’ve selected is included on each box of capsules you receive.

Postage icon

Which type?

Short Capsule

Short capsules

An intense espresso inspired beverage. The short capsules are complex and full flavoured, accompanied by a clean and creamy texture. Recommended shot weight 25g.

Long Capsule

Long capsules

A filter style shot. The long capsules are more elegant and light, showcasing the bright juicy characteristics of our coffees. Recommended shot weight 65g.

Milk icon

Milk

If you love milk in coffee we recommend combining our short capsule with steamed or warmed milk. Our long capsules produce a delicate, filter-like coffee which is best experienced without milk.

Berlina Estate Typica


Managed by the Casa Ruiz family, the Berlina Estate produces some of Panama’s most awarded coffee. Like many producers in the region, they are famous for their outstanding Geisha lots whilst also focusing on the meticulous cultivation and processing of other varieties.

This honey processed Typica microlot really caught our eye. The cup profile is unique, blending bundles of honey sweetness and juicy acidity with notes of hazelnut and chocolate.

Liquidambo COE #7


We secured this award-winning coffee at the 2016 Honduran Cup of Excellence. It is a stunning example of the Lempira variety’s ability to produce exceptional cup quality.

Expect round, juicy sweetness with red apple leading, toffee on the finish and a delightfully long acidity throughout.
