We are roasting another top quality delivery of Colombia Supremo coffee from Narino. It fills the cup with flavor; lively upfront with a substantial body, the flavor continues after the initial sip. The coffee is high grown in the Andes outside the mountainous region of Buesaco. Growers cultivate Typica coffee trees on small-plot family farms, usually less than two acres in size. Conditions in Nariño are near perfect: an average of 74 inches of rain fall and fertile soil. Temperatures stay consistent at 68 F ensured by day time heat in the canyons far below rising up to warm the coffee trees at night. Hundreds of farmers are organized on their own accord and utilize many tools offered by the Colombia Coffee Growers Federation (FNC). From seedling to blossom, from harvest to export, their artisanal process respects the earth and bolsters the strength of local community. Nariño farmers use shade-growing systems, innovations to conserve water during harvest and sun drying practices to tap into a renewable energy source. The workforce is community based and efficient, resulting in profits going directly to the families and strengthening the social foundations of the region. The coffee farmers of Nariño are proud of their product and their dedication definitely shows in this cup!
