About the region
Colombia's coffee region is a massive agricultural zone that expands through five departments: Quindio, Risaralda, Caldas, and small parts of Valle del Cauca and El Tolima.
Medellín is located in the department of Antioquia, north of the coffee region. Medellín, the "City of Eternal Spring", is the second-largest city in Colombia and the capital of the department of Antioquia—the birthplace of coffee in Colombia and still its largest growing region.
Coffees from Antioquia are known for their medium body and cup profiles that are typically not as fruity or winey as those from other regions. Rather, it produces a smooth, well-balanced cup that can be enjoyed any time of day.
The specification EP (European Preparation) denotes that the beans were hand sorted to remove any defects or foreign materials.

About the Region
The Cerrado Mineiro region, located in northwest of Minas Gerais State is a world-recognized, high-quality coffee producing origin and became the first Protected Geographical Indication in Brazil in 2005, with full Designation of Origin in 2013. A strong characteristic of this region is its well-defined seasons—a hot, wet summer is followed by a pleasantly dry winter. The dry climate during harvest eliminates potential problems with humidity during the drying process.
Minas Gerais is Brazil’s principal agricultural state, and the Cerrado is home to many of the country’s celebrated coffee estates, with expertise in planting, harvesting, drying, and sorting. We love Cerrado coffees for their big body, rich chocolate notes, and velvety texture when pulled as espresso.
Today, the area’s 4,500 farmers produce a combined average of 6 million bags per harvest, with an average of 35 bags per hectare. To reach these production levels, producers had to first adapt to the region’s conditions. Coffee farmers first arrived in Cerrado in the 1970’s, after being pushed out of the state of Parana by frost and out of the state of Sao Paulo by nematodes. They found the soil in Cerrado to be very acidic, which they rectified with the application of calcium to create the healthy soils they enjoy today.
Cerrado coffee farms are cultivated in areas with elevations varying between 800 and 1,300 meters above sea level and are known for consistently producing high quality coffees with a repeatable profile. Independent of farm size, the spirit of professionalism is present throughout Cerrado’s coffee producers. Entrepreneurialism is part of farmers’ DNA, and many producers are second or third generation growers who also hold degrees in agronomic engineering, business management, and administration. While each family narrative is different, Cerrado is characterized by an enterprising attitude.
The Cerrado Mineiro Designation of Origin recognizes demarcated territory that produces a product with unique characteristics not found anywhere else. In Brazil, the recognition of the Designation of Origin is made by the INPI – National Institute of Industrial Property. The Cerrado Mineiro Region Designation of Origin includes 55 municipalities that produce coffee with a special cup profile. Coffees from Cerrado Mineiro have a unique identity and quality resulting from the combination of climate, soil, terrain, altitude and know-how of people, from producers to agronomists to warehouse engineers.
In Cerrado Mineiro, there are 234,000 hectares in production, more than 102,000 of which are certified the Designation of Origin program, and 68,000 hectares use irrigation systems. Coffee from Cerrado Mineiro represents 14.4% of Brazilian production and more than 25% of Minas Gerais production. There are 4,500 coffee growers in Cerrado, and the program represents more than 1,000 producers and farms, and between 60,00-100,000 bags depending on the harvest.
To bear the Cerrado Mineiro designation of Origin seal, coffees meet the following criteria: produced within the defined Cerrado Mineiro area, grown above 800 meters above sea level, variety of Arabica coffee, producer member of one of the 9 cooperatives or 6 associations that make up the Cerrado Coffee Growers Federation, compliant with all Brazilian agricultural best practices laws, cup above 80 points SCA, and be stored in an accredited warehouse. Every year, the third party Totum Institute audits the Cerrado Mineiro Designation of Origin, guaranteeing all procedures adopted in its regulations of use and operation.

Don't take our word for it
Love this coffee! Coming from Wellington where there’s good coffee on every corner, it’s rare to have something that stands out from the crowd like Coffee Untitled does. Highly recommend for your morning brew, especially if you want to start your day off right.
I ordered the Espresso Blend. The order was shipped the same day I ordered it and I received it the very next day. To have freshly ground coffee (which was roasted just days before as indicated on the pouch) for my plunger coffee is such a treat. The grind is perfect and the taste is exquisite! Highly recommend!
SO delicious!! I’m terrible with coffee jargon and describing flavour profiles but I always looked forward to drinking it! Even tried it in the form of a flat white out of curiosity and it didn’t disappoint! Keep doing what you guys are doing
Delicious coffee! We used it on our espresso machine and it made such a great cup. Sent a pack to my mum too as she loves a good fresh filter coffee and she loved it too.
Through pregnancy and now breastfeeding, I've had to cut right down on my caffeine intake, which was so hard as someone who LOVES coffee! I was fortunate enough to try a cup (or 2) of Coffee Untitled's Decaf Esspresso blend, made by the man himself, Tony, and needless to say, I was sold! The delicate nutty flavour was beyond what I thought possible for a decaf. I have now made it my go-to whenever I need my coffee fix!
