Huila is home to the best speciality coffees, recognized and craved for around the world. Volcanic soils and varying altitudes of undulating mountains and river bed valleys typify this privileged land, Huila farmers take a special commitment to preserve in their coffee growing processes.
This Origin Coffee commemorates 100 years of coffee production in the Huila region.
Huila, home to rich volcanic soils and glacial waters that run down from the snow covered peaks of Parque Natural de los Nevados, proudly holds the Denomination of Origin protection seal of its coffees, defined as balanced, with sweet notes, medium/high acidity, body in the cup, and with intense, caramel and fruity aroma.
This region has seen the rapid and successful growth of speciality coffee production over the last decade, as small farmholders with plots no bigger than 1,5 hectares and mostly restoring their land from an illicit crop experience, have been key in reaching the high quality this coffee is prized for. Their careful and dedicated hand has ensured a leading producer position among Colombian coffee.
