Perched high up in the mountainous region of Buesaco, Enrrique Moncayo cultivates some of the best coffee from Nariño Colombia on his farm, Santa Helena. He represents one of the 40,000 family owned small coffee farms of Nariño, two-thirds of which average around 3 acres in size, that riddle the sides of profoundly deep canyons and valleys. The cup is explosive, concentrated deep, rich flavors round out the tasting experience. Señor Moncayo carefully cultivates strictly Caturra varietal Arabica coffee trees. His efforts paid off this past season, meriting his crop placing twelve out of the top three hundred crops in Nariño. There, intense high altitude sun during the day, crisp evenings, and a blanket of warm air rising up the deep canyons at night provide extended flowering and long periods of sugar concentration in the coffee cherries while they mature.
