Enjoy the flavor, and skip the caffeine. This premier coffee is hand picked by workers on small family-owned farms in the state of Nariño, on the Pacific Coast. The farmers take great pride in growing, picking, and preparing their products by hand. We take great pride in offering you the results of their hard work. Their dedication pays off in a balanced, bright cup of coffee, richly aromatic with a creamy body.
Full creamy body with well-balanced flavor and full rich aroma.
Place: The State of Narino, Southern Colombia. Grown in all of the communities surrounding the active Galeras volcano, on slopes whose elevation often rises above 6,000 feet.
People: The people of Southern Colombia are very warm-hearted and friendly. They have been committed to coffee farming over many generations. Their farms are small, and the families themselves comprise the labor with occasional help from their neighbors.
Process: Due to the large growing area and extended crop cycle, coffees are washed, fermented and dried by the individual farmers. Once enough coffee is collected, it is taken to Trilladora Narino in the city of Pasto for final processing, sorting and grading.
Pairing: Fresh bananas, peaches or nectarines. Honey raisin bran muffin, oatmeal raisin cookie.
