About this coffee:
The Department of Nariño is located in the southwest of Colombia, just above the equator and on the border with Ecuador. The region is strikingly mountainous and boasts no fewer than five volcanoes on of which is Galeras. And this coffee was, indeed, grown on the slopes of this volcano.
The regions of La Florida, Sandona and Consaca sit on the north and western side of the volcano. This allows coffee to be grown at altitudes that reach 2,200 metres, some of the highest at which coffee is grown in the world. The high altitude of cultivation allows for a slow, development of the coffee bean, which gives the cup profile of Nariño its unique characteristics of demerara sugar, stone fruits such as plum and cherry, and a delicate nutty aftertaste.
