At the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, lies the Magdalena coffee zone.
The region is home to great biodiversity and boasts an ecosystem with the ideal environmental conditions for the production of specialty coffee. Most of the coffee producing communities are Indigenous Aruhuaco, descendants of the Tairona civilisation, one of the most advanced pre-Colombian civilisations, dating from at least the 1st Century CE. The Tayronaca group has achieved USDA Organic, EU Organic, Fair Trade and UTZ certifications.
