In the southwest of Colombia, we find the Huila region, nestled on the flank of the Andes near the Nevado del Huila volcano, the second highest peak in Colombia. Consistently garnering awards in Cup of Excellence competitions, coffees from this department (state) are full-bodied, with a syrupy texture, strong fruitiness, and medium to high acidity.
Huila is steeped in farming tradition. Its rich, volcanic soils and lush climate are ideal for many crops including yucca, sugar cane, bananas, cocoa, and beans. And of course—coffee. This region lies relatively close to the equator which means that coffee harvesting here happens almost year-round. Rich volcanic soils, lush climate, altitude all combine to make coffee from the Huila district some of the most exquisite in Colombia.
