This direct trade coffee is grown in an Andean region of Colombia, called Nariño. What makes this coffee particularly special is the geographic terrain in which it is grown. Nariño is known for its rugged mountains, deep valleys, and beautiful lagoons, which make for a great cup of coffee, but not the easiest growing and harvesting conditions. In working with farmers from the region, we have found that the coffee has a certain sweetness characteristic that differentiates it from the other surrounding regions.
