The Case of Café Nariño, Colombia

The region of Nariño in southern Colombia is a relatively remote area in whose mountainous region approximately 40,000 farmers use very traditional methods of coffee production and primary processing. Though distant from markets and large urban centres, their output has a widely recognized and unique flavour that have distinguished it and provide a premium-priced product for one of the country’s less developed rural regions. In 2007, coffee milled in Nariño reached almost 450,000 bags (60 kg) of green coffee, almost twice the amount at the beginning of the decade and considerably more than 2,000 bags exported as Nariño in 1986.
