For generations, coffee connoisseurs have treasured Nariño as one of the best coffees in the world. In fact, this legendary Colombian coffee may be as close to heaven as a coffee can get. It’s grown at altitudes reaching up to over 7,000 feet on the perilously steep slopes of Mount Galeras -- one of the world’s most active volcanoes. This marriage of extremely high altitude and a unique mineral-rich soil that’s refreshed by frequent volcanic eruptions helps to create flavors that other coffees cannot even begin to imitate.
Coffee was probably first introduced to Colombia by the Jesuits in the early 1700’s. Rich volcanic soil and the pure water and fresh clear air of the high Andes create the perfect environment for coffee beans to grow and flourish. Almost all Colombian coffee is grown on small family farms and picked by hand. And all Colombian coffee is strictly graded for quality. Ours is the very finest grade.
