La Sierra is a community located on the Eastern border of the Medellín city limits. High in the mountains overlooking the downtown, La Sierra is a remote area you wouldn’t believe could exist so close to a major city like Medellín. The air is fresher, the view is more impressive, life is lived more simply, and worries of the hustle and bustle of Medellín seem to melt away. However, La Sierra wasn’t always such a peaceful environment. In the recent past, this area was a red zone, an area full of so much violence and fighting that no one would even dare to enter. Still to this day, when you tell someone from Medellín you went to La Sierra they gasp with disbelief because of the dark memories that are still so prevalent.
Through this coffee we celebrate the progress and cherish the peace with which the community of La Sierra is able to live their lives today. Experience extraordinary, experience a social revolution. Experience Tropical Summer.
