This lot brings together coffees produced by families from the municipalities of Pitalito, Palestina and Acevedo, which are located in the southern part of the department of Huila.
The Valley of the Laboyos is found within the municipality of Pitalito, and was declared a biosphere reserve in 1972 by UNESCO. Southeast of Pitalito, sits the municipality of Palestina. Palestina is considered the “the water and forest factory of Huila”—due to the various protected micro-basins found within its watershed, its rich biodiversity and most of all, for its inhabitants’ commitment to conserving this environment and its natural resources. Within the municipality of Acevedo, we find the Parque Nacional Natural Cueva los Guácharos, the oldest national park in Colombia, named after the Guácharo, or Oilbird, the only nocturnal, flying, fruit-eating bird in the world.
