100% Arabica Colombian Origin Coffee
We come from a generation of 100% Arabica Colombian Origin coffee growers with over 80 years of experience within the business.
Life took Francini to the UK in search of a better future and now over 30 years later, we continue to uphold the family tradition.
All the coffee we prepare comes from our farm near the central-western region of Colombia, in the municipality of Pijao, Filandia at the Quindio Department. We also buy special productions from other farmers around the area so rest assured you are drinking one of the best coffees in the world.
This area is so important that a theme park based on Colombian coffee production was built in 1995 by the National Federation of Coffee growers of Colombia and the Departmental Committee of Coffee Growers of Quindío.
A brief history
25 years ago while being part of a logistics team dedicated to organize exhibitions around the UK. Francini realised the need for high-quality smooth coffee served at these events. Here, his vision to offer a product so personal and unique began to bloom.
After 14 years going around the country, Francini and Sandra his wife decided to share with the world the culture, music and the outstanding coffee beans that Colombia have been producing for centuries.
A sucessful family business that saw the creation of the logo and identity in the following years, it was finally time to open up a shop here in the picturesque city of Worcester.
Francini Café De Colombia Worcester was born on the 26th of June, 2014. Finally, a place to express and share our culture, warmth, and professionalism with all our wonderful local customers.
About our coffee
100% Arabica Colombian Origin
In Francini Cafe de Colombia we only use 100% Arabica Colombian Origin. The Arabica type is considered the merlot of coffee. It has a mild taste, and to coffee drinkers, it can be described to have a sweetness, that is light and airy, like the mountains it comes from. Read more about it with our friends from Toughto.co
100% Arabica variety
We begin by collecting the mature grains by hand, the mucilage (a viscous membrane that covers the seed) is completely removed by placing the grains in fermentation tanks until the mucilage that covers the parchment loses that mucous texture and acquires a rougher exterior.
Our grains then receive some time in the sun to reduce the humidity until it reaches the maximum level of 12.5%.

100% Arabica variety
Much like the Lavado process, this process is fundamentally the same, with the exception of the treatment of the mucilage membrane. Here the mucilage is NOT removed but rather the coffee is dried while maintaining the natural viscous exterior.
The name comes from the texture of the coffee bean, as the beans will be sticky just like honey. The coffee does not taste like honey nor is honey used at any point.
