After the abundance of choice from the many diverse Colombian coffee regions that we have been presented with, we thought is was time to go on a journey of coffee discovery and with this in mind we would like to present to you our latest offering.
Las Galeras (Nariño Department of Colombia) see map below
Coffee tree varietal(s) Caturra and Castillo all being within the Arabica coffee family. This coffee was selected from various small farm holders from regions surrounding The Galeras Volcano: La Florida, Sandona, Consaca with an altitude of 1,700 to 2,200 meters above sea level. The regions of La Florida, Sandona and Consaca sit on the north and western side of the volcano. Coffee is grown at altitudes that reach 2,200 metres, some of the highest at which coffee is grown in the world.
The high altitude of cultivation, which allows for a slow development of the coffee bean, gives the cup profile of Las Galeras its unique characteristics, which are further enhanced by fermenting it between 12 and 48 hours and drying on open and covered patios.
