ABOUT COLOMBIA NARIÑO
The highest-grown Colombian coffee is cultivated in Nariño, a small region bordering Ecuador and the Pacific Ocean. Steady year-round sunlight, variation between day and nighttime temperatures, and rich volcanic soils converge to make this a place where lively, deeply sweet coffees are grown. Farms in Nariño are the smallest in Colombia, on average less than one hectare each. The production of specialty coffee in Nariño is an artisanal process led by the coffee grower, his or her family, and other members of the community with whom they share the work.

ABOUT THE REGION
Colombia is a land of extremes. With vast rain forests, sprawling savannas, huge mountains, and 2,900 kilometers of coastline on two oceans, this equatorial country is one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth. Colombia’s incredible variety of micro-climates allows it to produce a significant volume of premium washed Arabica every month of the year.
