High above in the Andes mountains sits the town of Buesaco, within Nariño, the well-known coffee-producing region in Colombia. Nariño is one of Colombia’s 32 departments, and thanks to its rich soils and cooler climates – it is a pristine area for coffee production. La Tormenta, the farm where this lot comes from, is situated here, and is run and owned by Jairo Rodriguez, after inheriting the land from his father. He soon realized that the high altitudes and nutritious soils were ideal for coffee production. He thus removed the existing crops and replanted with coffee. To his surprise, Jairo and his brothers are now responsible for some truly remarkable coffee in the Nariño region. This coffee is carefully and evenly harvested by hand before being transported to the mill. The coffee is then washed and left to ferment for 36 hours to breakdown the exterior mucilage. Once the fermentation is complete, the coffee is dispersed on raised beds in the open sun to dry. After drying is complete, the coffee is hulled and rested prior to export.
