Thank goodness for hamburgers… let me explain. When I was in high school, the cafeteria would offer a main dish for lunch. Sometimes it was good, but other times it was the dreaded mystery meat. Luckily, for me and the other hungry Tornado’s, they would always have hamburgers. They were a tasty and reliable option. That’s the case with this Colombia; it’s super balanced with notes of cherry, lavender, and cane sugar and importantly, it’s as dependable as the humble hamburger!

Nariño is the southwestern-most department in Colombia along the border with Ecuador, with one of its main boundaries being the Pacific Ocean. The climate here is unusual even in a place as geographically diverse as Colombia: Dry, rugged terrain and dramatic slopes and valleys create conditions that boost the big, sparkling, and juicy quality of the coffees. Warm, humid air collects in the lowlands during the day and creeps up the mountainside at night, which allows coffee to thrive much higher than commonly thought possible, all the way up to 2,300 meters.
