Salgar is a town that has been home to very large and traditional coffee farms for more than 70 years. The farms we work with have been operating for decades and have large production areas of 100 hectares or more, giving Salgar a recognition for being a leader in large volume coffee production in Colombia. 

Salgar isn’t only famous for decades old coffee farms that produce large volumes of amazing coffee. More so what is unique about this land is the mountains and how the farms span many different microclimates as the farms go up in altitude beyond 2000 meters above sea level. This change in altitude and micro climates allow the harvest to flow in at slightly different times, ensuring that the coffees are picked at maximum freshness in almost a wave that sweeps up the mountain.
