Colombia – San Agustín – 250g

Huila is located in South Colombia and bordered by the mighty Andean sub ranges of “Cordillera Oriental” and “Cordillera Central”. Coffee is grown on the slopes of the Cordilleras, split by the Magdalena River which is the principal river of Colombia. 

San Agustín, in the Southwest of the Huila Region where this coffee is grown, is located near a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The archaeological remains found there include Latin America’s largest collection of megaliths, constituting gods and mythical animals from Andean culture dating from the 1st century, it is considered the world’s largest necropolis. The area is known as the ‘Colombian Massif’, which refers to a group of Andean mountains in Southern Colombia.

The year-round distribution of rainfall and ambient temperatures allow Huila ‘cafeteros’ to cultivate coffee up to 1,900 meters above sea level. The high altitude creates the trademark Huila acidity; while the greenhouse-like conditions provide for frequent flowering periods throughout the year, explaining the distinct floral aromas of the cup. Although Huila is blessed with an optimal coffee growing environment the key to great quality coffees from San Agustin are the growers themselves. Coffee farming within the region is overwhelmingly small-scale. Approximately 80% of producers from the region farm coffee on less than 3 hectares of land. These small farms are tended by individual families with labour only very rarely being contracted out. All cherries are hand-picked, which leads to more thorough and intensive management practices and great pride in the final product .
