“La Jacoba” coffee from Union, in Narino state, comes from the volcanic mountain soils of the Colombian Macizo range, and is cultivated with great care by small-scale farmers and their families. The farmers use a traditional artisan practice of chemical-free plant growth, under the shade of native tropical canopy. Following the natural rhythms of the various plants, mature berries are hand-picked all year-round, soaked with mountain-sourced water to remove skins, and the beans are sun-dried. The high quality of the Special Reserve coffee is ensured, from the choice of the best red berries, to the quality control of the final product. This careful production process ensures a low environmental impact and a reliable sustainable supply, in harmony with nature.
