OUR EXCITEMENT
This was one of our first direct purchases from Red Fox Coffee Merchants that amazed us so much, we’ve quickly come to watch their offerings like a hawk. This coffee has a subtle lace of vibrancy, adding interest within each sip, and is anchored with smooth chocolate and nut-like flavor …like a comforting blanket, swaddling you in the night.

ADDITIONAL INFO
Interest in buying Nariño coffees has increased significantly over the past few years, due almost entirely to CRS’s Borderlands project, which focuses on the impact of coffee variety on farm sustainability and cup quality. It’s nice to see some of the focus in the south shift from Huila, Cauca, and Tolima, to the region that’s home to Colombia’s smallest coffee landholders. The coffee producers in the highlands, known as the FUDAM producers association, are in search of the area’s finest coffees. That search has led through many peaks and valleys, deep into the northernmost pockets of Nariño and new discoveries are made each and every season. These are quite possibly the most complex coffees from the greater area and there is a purity to these coffees that make them different than the rest.
