Our Colombia Excelso Bucaramanga is produced by many small farm holders in Santander’s Bucaramanga region. It is worth noting that Santander’s specialty green coffee plantations are unique in their integration throughout regional forests, helping to sustain a naturally biodiverse coffee growing environment. Amazingly throughout Santander approximately 91% of the total number of coffee trees are shaded! — 61% semi-shaded and 30% fully shaded, allowing producers to develop natural, environmentally friendly ecosystems based on organic fertilizers and the surrounding forest. There are a total of 31,929 registered coffee growers in Santander; of its 87 municipalities, 75 of them grow coffee. Coffee farms here are typically highly modernized and produce mainly rust-resistant Castillo, Colombia, Caturra and Typica varieties.
Bucaramanga, the capital city of Santander rests atop a plateau in the northeast portion of the department in between the Andean peaks to the east and the immense El Tama National Park, a sprawling 340,000 acres of protected forests, rivers, and picturesque mountains directly to the west.
