While Ethiopia and Yemen debate on just who is the birth place of coffee, Colombia has been a staple-mark in coffee production for centuries. Folklore tells that in the early 1800s a Father Francisco, after hearing confessions in the northeastern town of Salazar de las Palmas, assigned planting coffee as penance to the parishioners’ sins. Having heard this the Archbishop of Colombia ordered all priests to adopt the practice and partake. From this tale commercial coffee production quickly spread, moving to regions like Huila where growing conditions were more ideal for better product. The fertile mountain valley of Timaná Huila produces a coffee with notes of juicy yet tar orange, lemon and cherry with a dark chocolate finish.
