Colombian coffee is known for its rich, mild flavor that comes from the perfect climate and elevation. Coffee grows best in volcanic soil, at 1,200-1,800 meter elevation, in places that are free of frost but receive around 80 inches (200 cm) of rain a year. The ideal conditions for the cultivation of this species in Colombia are found between the 1.200 (4,000 ft) and 1.800 meters (6,000 ft) above the sea level. This region has temperatures between 17 and 23 degrees centigrade (62-75 fahrenheit) and with precipitations close to 2.000 millimeters (78 inch) per year, well distributed along the year. French roast is considered to be a double roast coffee. This is a category of dark roasted coffee characterized by an intense and smoky-sweet flavor, accompanied by a thin body and mouthfeel. Compared to lighter roasts (like cinnamon light roast coffee, which is highly acidic), French roast coffee is far less acidic and roasted in flavor. It often has a smoky flavor.
