This Microlot was produced by Ofelia Alvarez in Nariño, Colombia. The mountainous region has excellent conditions, both in terms of humidity and temperature, to keep coffee in parchment for ongoing export shipments, and its location on the equatorial line provides a great angle of sun exposure for the extremely steep hills around the volcano. Coffee here is grown at altitudes that reach 2,200 metres, some of the highest elevations at which coffee is grown in the world. The high altitude of cultivation allows for a slow, development of the coffee bean, which gives the cup profile of Nariño its unique characteristics.
