The highest-grown coffee in Colombia is cultivated in Nariño, a small region bordering Ecuador and the Pacific Ocean. Coffee from Nariño can be cultivated at such extreme altitudes (up to 2,300 meters ASL) because it is just one degree north of the equator. Its proximity to the Equator, the number of hours of sun per day, and huge temperature changes between day and night give Nariño its distinctive flavor.
Still another extreme: Farms in Nariño are the smallest in Colombia, with an average size under 1 hectare. Because growers have such small lots, they’re intensely dedicated to improving their coffee quality and yields.
