Coffee With Meaning:
The name Seynekun comes from the Arhuaco word meaning Mother Earth.

This Organic coffee is grown in the Northern Colombian Mountains high above a small town called Seynekun (Arhuaco territory). The Jewrwa indigenous community is a small passionate group of coffee farmers who enjoy the benefits of cool temperatures sunny days and a nice southern breeze. The soil is rich with nutrients and the rainfall is perfect for growing excellent high altitude premium coffee. This coffee is hand-picked to ensure the finest quality then washed and set in the sun to dry. Colombia is a paradise for growing excellent coffee. Thanks to the conditions of the region, the cup takes on a sweet fruity nutty cereal taste and a great character impossible to find in other origin coffee.
