This coffee comes from Colombia from the area called Acevedo. It is a municipality located in the south-easternmost corner of the Huila department of Colombia.
The altitude ranges from 1200 to 1800 meters above sea level (masl). Elsewhere in Colombia, the lower part of this range could potentially produce uninteresting, flat coffees. Coffees pro3duced at higher elevations are typically denser and are therefore appreciated more by specialty coffee professionals. Typically, an increase of elevation means an increase in perceived acidity in the cup.
Acevedo coffees are anything but uninteresting, whether they’re grown at the higher or lower part of the elevation range. They are incredibly sweet, complex and fruited cups.
