As its name implies, Colombia Nareño coffee comes from a region in southeast Colombia on the border with Ecuador known as Nareño. The Andes Mountain Range, which begins in southern Chile and Argentina, enters Colombia through Nareño and crosses the country from south to north.
Nareño’s unique characteristics create an exceptional coffee-growing climate. The mountain area gets more than 70 inches of rain per year and plenty of sunshine. The region’s volcanic soil has a high percentage of organic material.
For us, the heart of Colombian coffee sits in the mountains of Nareño. Coffee grows at elevations higher than 6,500 feet, where warm tropical days and cool nights let the beans develop slowly.
