Tolima is the third-largest coffee-producing region of Colombia and accounts for 12% of the country’s annual production.
Located in west-central Colombia, this region is fully inscribed by the Andean mountains and the Magdalena river basin, making it rather remote and challenging to access.
Until recently, much of the coffee growing area had been considered dangerous because of the Colombian FARC’s presence.
Today, Tolima has seen a drastic decline in FARC presence, allowing for increased accessibility to these nutty, tangy and fruity coffees.
