Background story on these beans:
Direct trade from a family owned farm. These beans are hand picked to ensure top quality by a family that has been producing coffee for generations.
This producer grew up in a family that truly values their ancestry, culture and the lands they tend to. Family values have instilled such a passion for coffee, which is needed because being a coffee producer is a 24 hour a day job and extremely hard work. This isn’t well recognized by the everyday coffee consumer.
Huila is framed by the Central and Eastern ranges of the Andes, with most of it sitting in the Magdalena Valley. This provides great variation in climate: according to the FNC, temperatures on farms vary from 17°C (62.5°F) to 23°C (73.5°F). Most of these farms are between 1,200 and 1,800 m.a.s.l. They also benefit from the nitrogen-rich volcanic soil.
