Sierra Nevada has around 15,000 coffee growers who mainly come from indigenous ethnicities such as the Arhuaca, Wiwa and Kogui. Indigenous coffee growers adopted the coffee growing culture according to their beliefs, growing coffee with organic materials and with a profound respect for mother earth. For these indigenous coffee growers, coffee is full of flavour and spirituality. This makes it unique. Throughout the entire process, they show their gratitude through rituals that help fertilise their fruits with positive energy.
This pyramidal shape mountain contains all thermal floors and the different ecosystems that make up the rainforest, the forest, and the Andean highlands. Its proximity to the sea creates a unique microclimate with higher relative humidity, which provides coffee its greater intensity and body.
