This Colombian single origin is a coop coffee sourced from selected regional producers in Nariño. Located in the South West of Colombia, near the border with Ecuador. It’s a blend of the varietals: Caturra , Castillo & Typica.
The Nariño region is predominantly known for producing a sweeter tasting coffee with very high acidity. The region has quite a unique geography and climate. Warm winds and plenty of sunshine keep the temperatures at moderate levels throughout the year. These conditions allow farmers to grow coffee at a very high altitude without the risk of frost, droughts or flooding. At this dramatic elevation the air is ‘thinner’, having less oxygen which for coffee trees means that it takes more time to develop ripe cherries which results in more sophisticated acid structures which produce the sweeter flavours, characteristic of the region. The high acidity levels in the coffee are produced by the combination of volcanic soil and cold night temperatures.
