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 showcase 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.

We’re thrilled to present another exceptional coffee from one of the most celebrated plantations in Panama. Finca Hartmann is renowned for its progressive, quality-driven approach to farming — and this fully-washed Pacamara is another example of the farm’s devotion to producing some of the world’s best coffees.
