Quindio sits within the rural Paisa region of Colombia, famous for producing coffee. The second smallest department in Colombia, there is a high concentration of coffee producers in the area, and it is one of the key production areas in the country. El Eden itself is situated in a privileged position amongst the Cordillera Central, one of three veins of the Andes as they run through the country north to south. Castillo and Caturra are two very common varietals in Colombia. Research done in 2015 showed both scored similarly in quality, although they differed in character: Caturra is more citric and floral, while Castillo is more fruity over nuts and cocoa. An even split between the two, this coffee is collated at the dry mill facility managed by local farm owner Hernan Israel Ocendo Usman. It is sourced from a group of 10 more technically advanced farms that focus primarily on the quality of the coffee they grow.
