Nariño has the highest altitude at which coffee is grown in Colombia which also means temperatures are quite low. This climate is perfect for the coffee cherry, as the bean matures slowly it can have a higher concentration of sugar.

Unlike many regions in Colombia, Nariño’s soil is extraordinarily rich in volcanic ash.
Additionally, Nariño has a unique climate pattern. This region is very humid, and rainfall can be quite intense throughout the year. Amazingly, every year precisely during harvest time the sun comes out which creates the best conditions to pick, process, and dry coffee.

This means higher amount of nutrients and contributes to a much healthier plant and higher complexity in the cup. That’s what makes coffee from this region so unique.

Cooperativa de Cafes Especiales de Nariño, have designed a social-driven program that focuses on quality and aims to help the smallest and least protected farmers from the region.
