L’Aroma is our group lot composed of beans sourced from small farmers in and around the Nariño region. This area has had its fair share of turmoil in the past, therefore coffee production has brought a sense of security. For the local community, coffee has always been a symbol of hope and a means to foster peace and improve their way of life.
The honey processing method involves first removing the outer fleshy fruit layer, and then allowing the cherries to ferment without adding water for 48 hours. The final step is to dry the beans for approximately 12 days, depending on the weather.
In the region, there are approximately 2,500 small-scale producers who utilise the natural resources of the area to cultivate their crops. The farmers contributing to L’Aroma Nariño Honey enjoy mineral-rich soils. This is due to the fact that they are located in the area of the Volcanic Chain of the Coconucos. This group of 12 aligned volcanoes offers exceptional conditions for the growth of coffee beans.
