We’re excited to be bringing you a new Colombia coffee for the season. A few months ago we talked a bit about the history of Colombia coffee.
Our newest Colombia coffee is called Colombia Huila Regional Select and comes from Cafe Imports. Regional Select is a new project from the importer with a goal to highlight the unique profiles of coffee found in specific microregions within Colombia. The regions they are currently highlighting are Huila, Narino, Cauca, and Tolima.
Coffee production is the majority of income in Huila and is 16.30% of Colombia’s total coffee production. Production of specialty coffee in this region has increased in Huila and represents 7.3% of GDP. 96% of producers are smallholders with an average farm of 3.7 acres and produce 82% of the coffee. Over 300,000 people in the region depend on coffee activities.
