9th Street Coffee's Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. When you think of Colombian Coffee the 1st area that comes to mind is Armenia close to the center of the country, however traveling North towards the Atlantic coast lies a snow capped mountainous peninsula named Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Imagine black sand beaches, rolling waves, soaring peaks and one of the most unique tasting shade-grown coffees in Latin America. Because of the rich volcanic soil, Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta features a bold strong earthy note with an essence of dark chocolate and toasted almonds. Even with such a strong flavor, Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta has a smooth low acid finish. This is a great tasting and rare Colombian treat.
