This lovely coffee from another legendary grower/ producer Corlos Correa is part of the traceability program is a testament to quality processing and sustainable farming. We know you will appreciate the flavors of this coffee as its a Washed process from a land we all love and admire. The relationship between Coffee Producers and Baristas is fascinating because they are wholly independent yet at the same time a world apart. Without the Barista, the Producer has no vessel through which to express their labor; without the Producer we have no story to help keep quality and respect the fact we need to help pay the price for well processed coffee in order to keep this industry’s future healthy. Santander Coffee Is a region located in the north of the Cordillera Oriental, blessed with a rich biodiversity and lots of sunlight, coffee here grows in the shade of native forests giving it exquisite herbal notes.
- Colombia has the ideal geography for coffee production. Their coffee is known for its rich, mild flavor that comes from the perfect climate and elevation. As you may have heard before, coffee grows best in volcanic soil, at 1,200-1,800 meter elevation, in places that are free of frost but receive around 80 inches (200 cm) of rain a year. Colombia ticks all those boxes.
- Colombia basically has a bean to suit every taste. As you can see in the picture, Colombia has wide growing areas that run from north to south, producing different bean flavors. For example, the northern region that includes Norte de Santander, Santander, and ‘Others” is warmer and lower altitude and produces coffee that has lower acidity and a fuller body. Central region including Antioquia, Cundinamarca, and the north of Tolima harvests all year round. Finally, the beans from the southern part of the country (Nariño, Cauca, Huila and the south of Tolima grow at higher altitudes, closer to the equator, giving them a higher acidity and much sought-after sweetness. What’s all this mean? The taste of coffee is subjective, and you will definitely find exceptional coffee that you’ll love.
- The whole country is behind coffee production. There are more than 500,000 families that produce coffee in Colombia, and they are in a well-organized trade association that is focused on making sure these families have good working conditions, improved infrastructure, and social security. And because it’s all family-owned business, these coffee growers pour a lot of love into what they do.
