Despite once being one of the epicenters of the Colombian armed conflict, Valle del Cauca has a lot to offer. It is located on the Pacific coast of the country, bordering Choc√≥, Tolima, and Cauca. The valley is considered one of the most fertile regions in Colombia, with the Cauca River running through it. This river plays a fundamental role in coffee, as it is the basis for their approach to coffee growing. Farmers in the region are keenly aware of the importance of water management, eco-friendly farming practices, and protecting the region’s natural resources.

Located on the skirts of the western Andean range, specifically in the municipality of Trujillo, you can find Hacienda la Rochela. This family-run farm has operated now for more than 20 years. Since its foundation in 1999, the farm has focused on producing organic coffee, and during the last 10 years, they have incorporated the production of Rain Forest Alliance-certified coffee. Over the years, la Rochela has grown a wide range of varieties, from Caturra to Geisha, Java, Pacamara, and Yellow Bourbon. These trees all benefit from the high altitudes in the region, which range from 1,400 to 1,600 masl. Additionally, their processing methods vary. You can find classic washed, honey, and natural lots, all the way to coffees undergoing double fermentation or long anaerobic fermentation.

      Historically, Colombia has been shattered by various periods of violence and setbacks. However, in the past 20 years, Colombia has leaped to becoming an economic powerhouse in Latin America. On the quest for distinguished coffees, you simply cannot miss Colombia. Its quality reputation stems from hard work and excellent terrain.

      Colombia’s natural beauty stems from its extreme diversity: two oceans, snow-peaked mountains and glaciers, endless deserts as well as the Amazon basin are found in this unique South American gem. The west of the country is dominated by three Andes mountain ranges, called the Cordilleras.

      Due to their proximity to the equator, several microclimates are formed within these mountain ranges. Add to that altitude ranges from 800 to 2,200 meters, and you will start to realize why Colombian coffees are so diverse.
