More about this coffee

When it comes to Colombia, it is widely accepted that some of the country’s best coffees come from the south west in the departments of Huila, Tolima, Nariño and Cauca. This is a fabulous coffee that is produced by a group of farmers situated in the southern town of La Plata in Huila who all share the same microclimate. Each producer has around 3 to 7 hectares of land planted with coffee and shade trees of plantain and guamo – ripe red cherry is harvested and processed on each smallholding using their own micro wet mill.
