Colombia

Narino El Tiple

Colombia is a land of extremes. With vast rain forests, sprawling savannas, huge mountains, and 1,800 miles of coastline on two oceans, this equatorial country is one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth. Colombia’s incredible variety of microclimates allows it to produce a significant volume of premium washed Arabica every month of the year.

Farms in Nariño are the smallest in Colombia, on average less than one hectare each. Because farmers have such small pieces of land, growers are highly dependent on income from coffee cultivation, and are intensely dedicated to improving quality and yields. The production of specialty coffee in Nariño is an artisanal process led by the coffee grower, his or her family, and other members of the community with whom they share the work.
