Coffee is grown under the shade of native trees in Sierra Nevada. The highest coastal mountain in the world, this is a truly unique place that contains jungle, forest and paramo. The mountain sits 5,800 metres above sea level and 42km from the seashore.
UNESCO declared Sierra Nevada a Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site in 1979.
More than 15,000 indigenous people have embraced coffee farming as part of their essence and cultivate coffee full of flavour with strong and intense character. Their culture holds a profound respect for the environment due to their beliefs.
Being the highest mountain region in the world with ocean proximity, provides a unique microclimate with higher relative humidity levels that develop full bodied coffees of great intensity.
Sierra Nevada Coffee is an intense beverage with notes of hazelnut and dark chocolate.
