Why Tinto?

In Colombia, “tinto” means two delicious beverages with two very different colors, or “tintos”, meaning “dye”.

Black coffee and red wine are both “tinto”.

If you order a “tinto”, guess which one you’ll be brought? It doesn’t matter if it’s at morning or night, at a roadside cafe or elegant restaurant, “tinto” means “black coffee”. You’d have to specify “vino tinto” to get the red wine. We’re not in Argentina; this is Colombia, after all.

Colombia is coffee. Coffee is Colombia.

Tinto Tinta brings you the best of Colombian coffee. Talk to me about what beans you need.

I’ll celebrate the arrival of your first shipment with a toast of the other “tinto”.
