STEWED APRICOT AND MAPLE SYRUP
Colombia has 20 coffee-growing departments (districts)each with differing microclimates created by mountainous terrain, wind patterns and proximity to the Equator.
The southwestern department of Nariño, Cauca, and Huila tend to have higher altitude farms, which comes through in coffees with more complex acidity and heightened florality in the profiles.
Nariño is the southwestern-most department in Colombia along the border with Ecuador, with one of its main boundaries being the Pacific Ocean. The climate here is unusual: Dry, rugged terrain and dramatic slopes and valleys create conditions that boost the big, sparkling, and juicy quality of the coffees.
Warm, humid air collects in the lowlands during the day and creeps up the mountainside at night, which allows coffee to thrive much higher than commonly thought possible, all the way up to 2,300 meters.
If you require the beans to be ground then please leave us a note at the checkout (and tell us what you brew on).
