Originally from the Planadas and Gaitania terroirs, south of the Tolima region, this coffee is grown in a high altitude area very often covered by clouds.
We fell in love with this coffee, which is part of a high altitude organic production (1600 - 2000 m). Fully washed then fermented, the coffee is produced from heritage varieties such as Bourbon, Typica, Caturra, Castillo and Colombia, which ...are very rare today. The main harvest takes place from May to June (70%) and the mid-crop (the "mitaca") is from October to January (30%).
This coffee is produced by two cooperatives of indigenous coffee growers - more than 240 families from the NASA WE'SX community – in the Planadas and Gaitania terroirs. Every farmer owns about 2 to 4 hectares. These terroirs are protected lands for these native peoples, and each hectare contains more than 6000 trees. They are the caretakers of one of the largest natural reserves in Colombia. This land and their beliefs, caring for Mother Earth, make them the best allies to produce one of the most delicious organic coffees in Colombia. They have joined forces to form several organisations of coffee producers in order to promote their coffee culture, safeguard income for their families and strengthen their community.
