Huila is located in the southern portion of Colombia close to the Andes mountains. Huila’s capital city of Neiva is dry, flat, and desert-like, markedly different from the coffee regions further south. Huila holds important historic significance. The archeological site at San Agustin includes a large number of stone carvings, figures, and artifacts that pre-date colonialism.
Centered around the city of Pitalito, Huila’s coffee farms are small, farmer owned properties. Education over the past ten years have improved everything from fertilization, to manual harvesting, attentive processing, and careful post-harvest sorting which all contribute to increasing recognition of the region.
Huila’s Departmental coffee committee, has invested notable resources into training producers and has created an exceptional regional culture of quality-focused production.
