Colombia, one of the largest coffee producing nations in the world alongside Brazil, Vietnam and Indonesia, has always been known for its high altitude, high-quality Arabica coffees and incredibly efficient supply lines. It has a wonderful climate which allows it to produce great coffee all year round. In recent years, the Colombian farmers with assistance from the Colombian Coffee Federation (FNC – Federación Nacional de cafeteros) have done a remarkable job in growing and promoting the export of genuine speciality coffee, producing impeccable quality.
The name “Alto Vista” means high view is Spanish. Huila is the region with the highest coffee production in the country, so we thought the name was appropriate. This coffee comes from several farmer cooperatives in the Southern highlands of the Huila region. This group collects cherry from a few hundred farms, where the average size of a farm is around 3-4 hectares.
