Photographer's Note

These pictures were taken in Parque del café (Coffee Park), COLOMBIAN COFFEE is the denomination given to a 100% washed Arabica coffee produced in the coffee growing regions of Colombia. It originates from the particular combination of diverse factors: the latitude and altitude of Colombia's coffee growing zone, its soils, the botanical origin of the species and the varieties of coffees produced, the climate and rain pattern generated by the double path of the Intertropical Convergence Zone over the coffee area, the ever changing topography, the luminosity, the favorable temperature range within the day and throughout the year, an adequate amount and distribution of the rain and some common cultural practices that include the processes of selective harvesting and of transformation of the fruit through its beneficio, that includes washing and drying. These factors, together with the hard work of coffee growers, in a joint manner lead to the production and sale of an outstanding coffee described in the beverage as mild, of a clean cup, with a medium to high acidity and body, and a pronounced and complete aroma. It is a balanced coffee with a sensory profile of excellent quality.
In the last 12 months (March 2016-February 2017), the coffee harvest was almost 14.6 million bags of 60 kg.
