Popayan Cauca is located in the Colombian Massit. It is in a plateau located at nearly 1700 metres above sea level and its surrounding coffee in produced in the beautiful undulating slopes.
The so-called Meseta de Popayan is sheltered by the Andes mountain range which helps generate homogeneous climatic and altitudinal characteristics. The result is one of the most outstanding Colombian coffee origins.
This coffee is produced by approximately 65 growers, selected for their consistency and the cup profile of their coffees. Coffees from this programme are paid based on the quality, often reaching premiums of 20% above the market price.
This coffee was shipped to New Zealand in jute sacks lined with PVC Grainpro bags – an airtight storage system that preserves aroma and freshness for longer, while also allowing the coffee to breathe naturally.
