The coffee comes from the several smallholder farms around Buesaco county, in the northeast of the Nariño department. Buesaco is very well known for its unique microclimate with dry, soft breezes from the lower valley and chilly nights when the temperature drops from 25 to 15 degrees Celsius due to cool winds from high mountain peaks.

Carnaval is an homage to the coffee producing nation of Colombia where each harvest is celebrated and producers treat coffee as a sacred crop with a devotion and dedication. The coffee is harvested between 1850 and 2200 meters above sea level throughout the year thanks to Buesaco’s elevation and latitude. All farmers grow other crops like banana, plantain, and guava, which serve as shade, and corn and beans in addition to coffee. Producers fertilize two or three times a year, and most farms are between 6 and 18 years old.

Producers pick the ripest cherries, hand sort, ferment for 12 hours after picking, depulp, and ferment for another 12 hours to bring complex, citric, juicy, and floral notes to their coffee. Coffee is dried for at least 12-15 days in the shade. The group of producers that contributes to this blend is closely related to Cooperativa de Cafes Especiales de Nariño, where the coffee is received and stored until it gets milled and exported. This coffee is available all year round. The density and smaller screen size allow for development of outstanding flavor notes that can only be found in the coffees from this region.
