Colombia is the world's third largest producer of coffee. The Narino region is in the country’s southwest, along the Pacific coast. The region’s main export is coffee grown on and around the 12 Volcanoes, some of which are still active. The coffee farms are very high in altitude, with some at 2000 meters above sea level (MASL). At this altitude, and proximity to the ocean, the growing seasons are long, allowing for the beans to develop a full and rich flavour.
The castillo and colombian varieties of arabica beans are prized for their cup flavours and high yield. Like most of the coffee in this region, the coffee is fully washed at the farm and then dried on cement patios.
Being a single origin coffee, this is best served through filter or plunger to preserve the unique flavours created in this beautiful region.
Great for plunger and filter brews.
