The Nariño region is predominately known for producing a sweeter tasting coffee with noticeable acidity. The region has quite a unique geography & climate. Warm winds & plenty of sunshine keep the temperatures at moderate levels throughout the year. These conditions allow farmers to grow coffee at very high altitude without the risk of frosts, droughts or flooding. At this dramatic elevation the the air is thinner which for coffee trees means more time to develop ripe cherries. This results in a more sophisticated acid structure producing sweeter flavours characteristic of the region. The pleasant acidity levels in the coffee are a produced by a combination of volcanic soil & cold night temperatures.
