Single Origin: Huila, Columbia
Huila’s coffee crops are truly special: they grow bathed by waters that feed the Magdalena, Colombia’s most important river. On the slopes of the Andean massif grow different aromatic crops with distinct flavors, such as cocoa, various fruits and sugarcane.
These plants grow near the coffee plantations, leaving an incomparable trace: they adorn the beans with special nuances and notes. In Huila, coffee is grown on farms mostly between 1,200 and 1,800 meters above sea level. Although the majority of these are “high-altitude coffees” (between 1,700 and 2,000 meters), the variety of soils and their proximity to different crops and minerals allow for incredible notes to be achieved.
Examples of this are Pitalito, Acevedo, Suaza, Garzón and La Plata, municipalities where the flavor is most cultivated. There, we find Arabic varieties such as Típica, Borbón, Tabí, Caturra and Castillo, as well as others that prove harder to come across, such as Geisha and Maragogype.
