At 2,200 meters above sea level, in the Nariño region, is the most active volcano in Colombia, the Galeras, in the province of Buesaco. At this point, the warm winds from the Pacific Ocean cross the valley preventing plants from freezing. Due to the drastic change in temperature, coffee plants enter survival mode and undertake a metabolic process that results in a very characteristic flavor.

Almost 2,500 families grow coffee in this territory. Its farms do not exceed two hectares, creating an extremely selected product in which producers personally take care of harvesting, fertilizing and planting. Small producers typically produce washed coffee that undergoes a fermentation process for 12 to 16 hours before drying on African beds for a period of 8 to 14 days.
