The volcanic range of the eastern highlands in Nuevo Oriente is now inactive, but remnants of volcanic activity exist in the fertile soil and mineral-rich clay. The land composition here makes it harder for plants to extend their roots. For that reason, coffee grows slowly, producing fewer cherries that are bursting with flavor from the unique terroir that features a high ratio of metamorphic rock.
