El Nevado del Huila, from Colombia

Prepare to ascend to great heights as we introduce you to El Nevado del Huila, a majestic communal lot sourced primarily from producers in the captivating towns of Santa Maria and Pitalito, nestled amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Northern and Southern Huila. But what makes this coffee truly remarkable goes far beyond its geographical origin – it is intricately intertwined with the towering Nevado del Huila, Colombia’s highest volcano, reaching an astounding elevation of nearly 5,500 meters or 18,000 feet!
The creation of El Nevado del Huila is an art form that embraces precision and excellence. Each small lot undergoes a meticulous selection process, with individual cuppings performed multiple times before being seamlessly integrated into the main lot. Quality is paramount, and only coffees that meet strict cupping standards make the cut. The journey begins when the producer presents a sample at one of our buying stations, where the first evaluation takes place. Upon approval, the lot continues its expedition to the warehouse, where it endures yet another round of cupping.

We don't cherry pick...

Here, samples are meticulously extracted from each sack, ensuring consistency throughout the entire lot. Finally, upon receiving final approval, the parchment coffee is packed in grain-pro, remaining untouched until the milling process begins. 

Truly supporting the farmers means going beyond cherry-picking their best lots. It means standing beside them and embracing the entirety of their harvest, which often varies in quality. El Nevado del Huila exemplifies our unwavering commitment to these hardworking producers, whose lots present a clean, sweet, and approachable cup of coffee. Their dedication and labor result in a truly exceptional coffee that doesn’t disappoint! 

The producers who have contributed to El Nevado del Huila predominantly grow Caturra, Colombia, and Castillo varieties, at elevations ranging from 1,600 to 1,900 meters. 

As you savor the remarkable notes of El Nevado del Huila, remember that every cup is a tribute to the breathtaking Nevado del Huila. It symbolizes the heights of passion, the peaks of dedication, and the power of collaboration between nature and the farmers who nurture its gifts. Immerse yourself in this captivating blend and experience the extraordinary journey of El Nevado del Huila coffee – a symphony of flavors from the pinnacle of Colombian coffee.
