Santa Maria is a small Colombian village in the Andean mountain range of Huila. The village lies in a valley surrounded by mountain peaks with unique soil and ideal conditions to grow coffee. It includes the upper basin of the Baché river and a sector of the upper Saldaña river basin; draining its waters to the Magdalena River. The hamlet of Santa María arises from the expansion of the agricultural frontier, initially with the crops for the tobacco and anise season and later with the plantain, cassava and the cattle exploitation and coffee. The coffees from this region tend to have bright, sweet flavors.
