Colombia: Home of the perfect cup of coffee?

The BBC has a very interesting article today about the writers coffee experience in various places around the world. He mentions several coffees that we carry including Kopi Luwak Coffee and Colombian Coffee of which he states is the best. Here is an excerpt from the article.
It is a bewitching thing, coffee. For years I used to follow the daily twists and turns of the London coffee market, reporting on the tremendous Brazilian frost in July 1975 which devastated the crop and caused world coffee prices to triple in the two subsequent years.
I remember the dark auction room in the Brazilian port of Santos where the traders met to spar over the latest market offerings before retreating to their dusty offices to taste and sniff the export crop.
I remember the not very interesting coffee I had years later in Saigon, after the United Nations taught an emerging Vietnam how to grow coffee and their exports were soon equalling the global oversupply of beans on the world market, depressing prices for growers everywhere.

The article does not state which version of the Colombian Coffee is the best but the Colombian Peaberry Coffee is an exquisite selection which we carry.
