Altitude: 2,200-2,300 MASL
At around 2,300 meters above sea level in the department of Nariño you'll find Finca El Cairo, the beautiful farm that belongs to Lucas Melo, a very passionate man who is not your average Colombian coffee grower. He was called crazy for planting coffee at 2,300 MASL, and he doesn’t use a single gram of chemical fertiliser, choosing only organic compost instead. During harvest time Lucas wakes up at 3 am to wash his coffee and take care of his cherries, insisting that no one can wash his coffee like he does. For Lucas, his big secret is to do things right and cultivate his trees with love, which we admire greatly.
This is a truly exceptional coffee and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
