While all coffees we are produce are meticulously cared for and of great quality, on the cupping table we have our best chance to show our expertise and profiles.
As we walk through the trees of a coffee plantation, we notice the fruits are in all the different stages of their development. Locals have always known that the best coffee comes only from the properly ripened fruit, and to ensure this level of quality, Coffee Growers, coffee is harvested strictly by careful hand-selection, so only the fruits of the most perfect ripeness are picked. In this way, we maintain the quality of sweetness and body that defines the Coffee Growers cup of coffee.
In fact, every step towards our final product is artisanal. It starts with the preparation of the fertile volcanic soil, to the planting and care of the individual coffee trees, to the highly selective hand-collection of ripened fruits by experienced, local pickers, and continues from there at each stage of natural sun-drying of first the fruits and then the carefully separated beans, to the final stages of roasting and tasting before only the highest quality Coffee Growers, coffee is delivered to our customers.
We invite you to enjoy a coffee with a cultural richness unique to Colombia, thanks to all the knowledge and care of the indigenous peoples, dedicated for generations to finer coffee

Specialty coffee from Special Region
CULTURE, Bioclimatic and biodiversity
Cauca is known as a small version of Colombia in that it houses most of the bioclimatic floors and ecosystems of the country in which a variety of peoples each with their own culture and customs, as well as 7 tribes groups live together in a mosaic of ecosystems from the islands of Gorgona and Gorgonilla, in the Pacific Ocean to the Nevado del Huila Volcano
Cauca is home to 1200 bird species; that is, 14% of the world’s bird species.
The volcanic soils of the Cauca coffee producing region are the reason behind the high concentrations of sulfur that give the coffee its caramel-like aroma.
The Cauca coffee-producing region, therefore, presents very different night and day temperatures, known as thermal differential.
HIGH DENSITY AND SPECIAL NOTES
The conditions of the plant, its species and variety, as well as the surroundings and environment in Cauca are necessary but not sufficient conditions for the production of such a high quality coffee. The human factor, the care, selection, harvest and post-harvest processes are also fundamental elements.
