Growth Story

This coffee is named after the Great Colombian Massif, or Macizo Colombiano, a vast mountainous area that covers part of the states of Cauca, Tolima and Huila in the west of Colombia. This area is part of the Andean mountain range and is covered in snowcapped mountains, with elevations as high as 3,500m above sea level. The region is Colombia’s richest water source and many of the country’s largest rivers are born here, including the Cauca and Magdalena Rivers. Abundant, clean water and rich volcanic soil makes this area ideal for extensive agriculture and for exceptional coffee production.

This lot of Macizo Colombiano was blended from coffees produced by 18 smallholder farmers from the area around the municipalities of Rio Chiquito, Paez and Inza in the state of Cauca, along with China Alta and Laureles in the state of Tolima. The coffees were selected by cup quality and profile to make up this special lot.
