Colombia • Buesaco CherrySingle Origin
The town of Buesaco lies on a ridge high in the Andes mountains of the Nariño department. The Cooperativa Cafes Especiales collects coffees from smallholder farms which are tucked in the slopes surrounding the town.
The Buesaco Cherry lot is juicy, clean, and floral, named for its fruit-forward cup profile, created by allowing the coffee to rest longer in cherry either on the tree or after being harvested. Coop Cafes Especiales de Nariño has a regional reputation for quality and for compensating producers according to it. The coop employs and trains many of Buesaco’s young adults in its facilities, providing a meaningful source of local employment and on-the-job education.
