I've never had coffee as good as yours. Super tasty! And it's also fairly grown and traded. It doesn't get any better than that.
Very good, strong bean with minimal bitterness. Sustainable cultivation, fair price for customer and producer.
Very tasty coffee and absolutely recommended, unfortunately in plastic packaging!
Taste top. Sustainability idea is very good, but lacks seals or more trustworthy information on the sustainability concept.
Thank you for allowing us to make a small contribution. We will keep recommending your café to others!
Love the concept. Would like buy again if there was a stronger roast. Light roast was a little too watery. Underlying flavors were wonderful.
The whole process of buying Café del Cielo was absolutely positive. Ordering on the website was easy and efficient, the shipping was very fast and the coffee is delicious, being the first thing that accompanies my day.
Great coffee! And great sustainable concept! I sent coffee packages to family and friends as gifts and received great feedback on the taste! Keep going! :-) I will order again soon.
I liked the taste of the coffee. We liked the presentation of the packaging very much. But the most important thing to me is that the farmers are paid well and appropriately for their work Sustainability is the second important point for me. A great project!
We found the bean a bit too light and the coffee with too much acidity. As an espresso, we did not like it, in the cappuccino was good.
Absolutely supportable concept where you feel that it is pursued with a lot of heart and passion, fantastic and truly unique coffee taste! The price may be Justified, but is the reason why the coffee is drunk (so far) only on weekends and not every day.
It all works great already, very well thought out concept, the coffee is delicious, there are enough social channels and access to the product. I will buy coffee from CDC again
Super tasty, strong and full-bodied coffee! The concept behind the strong product is very convincing. Especially the transparency, education and artwork are impressive. I look forward to the next harvest and the roasted result!
The shipping is very fast. The packaging is beautiful and very adequate. My only concern, is that for the amount I consume, it is too expensive. Attention!!! It does not mean that it is not worth it. It means that it is not in my budgeted priorities.
Very good coffee taste and is also well tolerated by sensitive stomachs since it contains minimal irritants.
We are very happy with the coffee. We love the caramelized and chocolaty aroma. On the palate it is quite pleasant and we enjoy every cup!
I am absolutely in love with this coffee! Its aroma is rich and perfectly balanced. It feels like a warm embrace and it invites you to slow down and really enjoy a moment of pause.
The packaging is beautiful, elegant and shows a high level of attention to details. I love Café del Cielo's mission and will continue supporting their project for years to come!
The delivery of the coffee was swift and the taste is excellent. I gave thecoffee to many friends for Christmas as a present and all are delighted.

For most coffee companies the story starts with a bean.
For us, it starts with the seed!
We are thrilled to release the fifth harvest of our farm El Cielo. – El Cielo Dark. We are a tiny coffee farm in the Andean mountains of Quindio Colombia. The rare quality of the volcanic soil and the high altitude (1.800 m) create special conditions for the unique quality of our coffee.
El Cielo means heaven or sky in Spanish. Imagine the cold of the early morning, standing at the top of the farm, holding a warm cup of coffee in your hands, the first sip of freshly brewed coffee, and looking at the clouds rolling up the cordillera. The feeling of being up in the sky.
This harvest we present a clean, sweet, silky cup with flavors of cacao and vanilla, in balance with a vibrant acidity that reminds us of red apples. This version of Cafe del Cielo is a darker roast, representing a bold intensity. Perfect for those craving a more classic Italian espresso.
We used the traditional washed method and then left the coffee to ferment for 36 hours. This process ends in a very clean and silky taste, typically found in Colombia’s Coffee. Our coffee is then roasted to perfection in Kiel – Germany by Axel Datschun/ Loppo Kaffe.
Our sustainably grown coffee has a unique and exquisite flavor profile with notes of toffee caramel, melted chocolate, red wine, and roses, making each cup a true indulgence.
Our coffee is produced using regenerative agriculture and the traditional washed method, resulting in a very clean and juicy taste that has been awarded 85 SCA points, meaning it’s excellent in quality.
We are committed to supporting fair wages and job training for our workers, as well as conservation efforts that preserve tropical forests and their endangered species, so you can feel good about the coffee you’re drinking.
BEHIND THE HARVEST
El Cielo is our first regenerative project and we have seen its transformation: birds and other animal species have been returning to the farm. Our plants are much more resilient to face extended periods of rain or drought. It makes us proud to see how beautiful nature is and to be a part of it.
We believe and are committed to this transformation and are focused on one thing: producing delicious high-quality Colombian coffee in harmony with nature and respect for the people behind it. We strongly believe in the power of nature and aspire to understand how a productive ecosystem can work in harmony with nature and people and not against it. We seek to show that we all together have the power to make a change with the decisions we make.
