VOLCÁN

This program is incredibly special for a few reasons. Nariño has the highest altitude at which coffee is grown which also means temperatures are quite low. This results in a slow maturation of the cherries which ensure higher levels of sugar in the coffee. Another amazing factor that makes this coffee unique is the rich soil in Nariño. Unlike many regions in Colombia, Nariño’s soils are extraordinarily rich in volcanic ash which is mainly due to the high volcanic activity in the area. Typically, volcanic ash soils contribute to a much healthier nutrition and higher complexity in the cup. Finally, Nariño has a unique climate pattern. For most times of the year it is very humid, and rainfall can be quite intense. Amazingly every year precisely during harvest time the sunshine comes out which creates the best conditions to pick, process and dry coffee. This is why Nariño coffees are considered to be amongst the best in Colombia by many coffee professionals around the world.
