About this coffee :

COLOMBIA is produced by Alvaro Javier Lopez, and was selected as one of the top 30 lots during the Mejor de Narino cupping competition and auction cosponsored by Royal Coffee and inconexus.

Alvaro Javier Lopez, produced this lot on his farm called El Guabo, which is located in the community of Medina Espejo in the municipality of Buesaco within the department of Narino, Colombia. The department of Narino has about 40,000 coffee farms, two-thirds of which, average around 1.5 hectares in size. Two volcanoes (Dona Juana in the north and Galeras in the south) are responsible for mant of the rich mineral traits found in the soil composition.  

The municipality of Buesaco, which has an interesting micro-climate caused by warm air that rises from the canyons at night an acts like a protective blanket for the coffee plants. As a result of these combined attributes, coffee plants passively absorb the sun's energy during the day and come alive at night when the conditions are less harsh. This translate into concentrated flowering and long cherry maturation periods.
