Colombia Inga Aponte 2150 – Medium Roast Coffee
As the name suggests, this awesome coffee is grown in the Nariño region of Colombia in mainly volcanic ash soil at 2150 metres.
The Inga people are descendants of the pre-Hispanic Inca’s who used to roam the Andes of Northern Peru until they were driven away into hiding high in the Andes of Northern Ecuador and Colombia during the Spanish conquest of South America. They eventually returned in the 1990’s under an agreement with the government under the protected territories program, but the land that had previously provided suddenly trapped them in the midst of a war in the mid 90’s. During this period they were subject to human right violations and forced into the illegal farming of illicit drugs under the influence of Guerilla groups, drug traffickers and paramilitary groups. In 2005 this came to an end with Government military intervention in the region allowing them to rip up the opium and poppy plants and replace them with Caturra seedlings laying out a future in coffee free from oppression. These farms sit in a picturesque location under the shadow of the Volcano Galeras, which sprinkles ash upon the land providing nutrient rich soil giving a unique flavour to the coffees.
