The Huila region is home to some of Colombia’s top coffee and is located in the Southern growing region. Coffee is grown under old, huge cotton-silk shade trees called Ceibas. Farm elevations are generally 5200 to 6000 feet. Ripe cherries are hand picked, mostly by women from the region, then wet processed using traditional fermentation, washing with pure mountain water using a series of canals, and sun-drying on patios. Supremo beans are large and uniform with 90% of them over screen 18. Supremo beans merged from area smallholders can be simple, clean and versatile. They are dense, durable and large.
