The Sierra Nevade de Santa Maria range in Colombia branches off the sweeping Andes, bearing the ideal climate (8° to 24°) for one of the finest coffee crops in the world, albeit measured by short harvest periods and declining yields from the effects of climate change.
Colombia boasts the highest Arabica bean production in the world. Arriving to its highlands shortly before the end of the 18th century, coffee farming found a hero in the figure of Juan Valdez, a fictional farmer appearing alongside his mule Conchita, bearing sacks of the precious crop.
