Our philosophy for sourcing is based on a foundation of relational partnerships. We are equally interested in quality product alongside of invested relationships that can mature and grow together. Over the years, we have had the deep privilege of fostering many of these sorts of relationships, and the release of Amparo is a perfect example of our philosophy at work.
In 2014 we turned our attention to the amazing coffees of Nariño. Season after season, we spend ample time in this region tasting hundreds of samples each year. We continually find ourselves amazed by the exquisite quality we find with our partners growing, harvesting, and processing small batch lots scattered on and around Volcán Galeras. Most of the coffees we source here we blend for Galeras to offer a bright and juicy expression of the beauty from it’s namesake.
