Excelso is a grading term for exportable coffee from Colombia, not related to variety or cupping profile. Excelso coffee beans have a screen size of 15/16, versus Supremo beans which have a screen size of 17/18. Often Supremo and Excelso coffee beans are harvested from the same tree, but they are sorted by size.
EP (European Preparation), represents beans that are screen size 15+ and meticulously sorted and cleaned to ensure coffee is free from defects and impurities.
