First Impressions

Originating from Concordia, Colombia, Kirkland Signature (Costco)’s Colombian Supremo medium-dark roast with an Agtron reading of 47 contains more oils, sugars, and compounds than light roasts. When coffee is roasted longer, the natural oils of the coffee bean are brought to the surface. This creates a deeper flavor and aroma. Medium-dark roasts have the sweetness and aromas of a light roast with some of the deeper flavors of a dark roast. Fully oxidized, medium-dark roasts have a more robust flavor than lighter roasts. If you like strong flavors or prefer a sweeter cup of joe, this coffee is worth considering.

Deep Dive

South-American coffees like Kirkland Signature (Costco)’s Colombian Supremo provide a balanced blend of sweet, nutty, and chocolaty flavors that make it a go-to choice.
Kirkland Signature (Costco)’s Colombian Supremo is processed using a special method known as the Wet-hulled coffee processing method. Wet-hulled processed coffees are known for their extremely rich and strong body, but devoid of sweetness and with really low acidity. They may have a slight tobacco profile, but when we think of wet-hulled coffees, we think of average, inconsistent flavors. A very humid environment makes this method ideal. While the intense flavor of wet-hulled coffee isn’t for everyone, it makes for an interesting single-origin coffee for adventurous coffee drinkers.
Colombian Supremo coffee is sourced from Concordia, Colombia, where the coffee beans are roasted carefully in order to produce some of the best coffee beans you can find on the market. The team behind Kirkland Signature (Costco) also features roasters who have a lot of experience and are very passionate about coffee, which reflects in the quality of the beans.
