Location & Farmer
Volcano Program.This program is incredibly special for a few reasons. Nariño has the highest altitude at which coffee is grown in Colombia which also means temperatures are quite low. This results in the slow maturation of cherries which ensures higher levels of sugar in the coffee. Another important factor that makes the coffee from this region so unique is the rich soil found in Nariño. Unlike many regions in Colombia, Nariño’s soil is extraordinarily rich in volcanic ash which is mainly due to the high volcanic activity in the area. Typically, volcanic ash in soil is rich in nutrients and contributes to a much healthier plant and higher complexity in the cup.
Additionally, Nariño has a unique climate pattern. For most of the year, this region is very humid and rainfall can be quite intense. Amazingly, every year precisely during harvest time the sun comes out which creates the best conditions to pick, process and dry coffee. This is why Nariño coffees are considered to be the best coffees in Colombia by many coffee professionals around the world.
The quality team at Cofinet, who imports this coffee, will be helping to educating farmers through their internship program. Through their assistant, they will see alternative processes coming out of Nariño for the very first time
