Located in the Nariño Department in southwest Colombia, Galeras is culled from microproducers outside of the capitol, Pasto. All the farmers who contribute to Galeras grow coffee surrounding the active Volcán Galeras, where it gleans its name. The climate here is dry and we believe that dryness, in combination with super-high elevations, accounts for the creation of some of the most complex coffees in Colombia.
2019 is our fifth year working with this handful of producers in Narino who own, on average, less than I hectare of coffee – an extremely small amount. To build this offering we partnered with a cooperative to help us separate great tasting lots and to build this blend. Our hope is to develop this relationship and grow our Galeras offering year after year, and to continue to offer stunning quality coffees.
