Acevedo is a municipality in the south-eastern of the Huila department of Colombia. It is wedged between the central and eastern mountain ranges where the Colombian Andes split into three distinct mountain ranges. Beyond this convergence is a jungle which emits moist, cool air that stimulates increased elevation and creates myriads of microclimates with varied humidity, temperature etc, which are all ideal for growing coffee. Thus, this nutrient-rich environment explains the high-quality coffee birthed from this region.
The coffee farms are situated on mountainous regions ranging from 1,400 to 1,800 metres above sea level, resulting in denser coffee and increased acidity. Common coffee varietals include: Pink bourbon, Caturra, Castillo, and they are usually fully wash-processed. Acevedo coffees are incredibly sweet, complex and fruity. There are also notable notes of apple, chocolate, and rose.
