Columbia is a stunningly beautiful country. The Columbian highlands are where our farmers produce some really great coffee. Our Columbian farmers tell us that their coffee is delicious for two main reasons.
First, The coffee fruit is always at different stages of maturity, so the farmers must hand pick the coffee very carefully. They take pride in careful picking to ensure the best possible flavor.
Second, our Columbian farms are located high in the Andes Mountains rich with volcanic soils. High elevation has long been known to produce better coffee, and the rich volcanic soils give the local coffee producers an extra boost.

In addition to coffee, Don grows corn and beans in between the coffee trees as a way to produce extra food and income before the coffee is ready to bear fruit.
