The Inga community of Aponte is comprised of descendants of the ancient, pre-hispanic Incas. The Caturra variety has been planted in the Inga territory, on smallholder properties in the Resguardo Inga Aponte, at an average of 2150 meters above sea level.
This elevation, combined with the Galeras Volcano constantly shedding nutrient-rich ash, makes for an exceptionally complex and sweet coffee.
Producers process coffee on their own properties, drying Honey coffee in stacked raised bed solar dryers on their farms. This process reduces water used for washing coffee and complements the natural complexity of coffees from this special region.
Aponte is a round and sweet coffee with a classic Colombian profile. A really smooth drinking cup with great structure and great sweetness. Think apple pie and creamy caramel.
