Amazing nocturnal image of Pasto, Columbia (foreground) near the erupting Galeras Volcano.
GUEST BLOG / By Blue Bottle Coffee--Seventy-one-year-old Doña Ernestina has farmed since she was an adolescent, and we swear you can taste a half century of experience in every sip of her washed coffee—a standout even among the best from the Nariño region. 
Finca La Primavera is, like most farms of the area, located on Galeras volcano. What makes it unusual is the thinner, cooler air washing over the land, a result of its astounding position 2,200 meters above sea level. The coffee trees seem to transform their precariousness into a bracing, wind-swept complexity, made all the wiser by the sage producer’s hands.
         Blue Bottle Coffee claims each bag of Colombia Consacá La Primavera whole beans is shipped to consumers within 24 hours of roasting from our Oakland roastery.

For centuries high altitude clouds off the Pacific Ocean have combined with nutrient rich ash from the Galeras Volcano (hidden behind clouds) to nurture amazing soil for coffee bean farms in the Narino (southwest) district of Colombia.
