Beneath the shadows of the beautiful Nevado del Huila, lies the small town of Gaitania, home to 100 small-scale coffee growers responsible for the El Jordan blend. The influence of this active volcano has given this region rich volcanic soils and sheer mountain formations, resulting in a range micro-climates. The fertile lands and mild climate, combined with strong dedication from these producers, result in a unique cup profile.
