Inga Aponte, Nariño

The farm of a local Native Colombian tribe is grown and harvested on the reservation by the local Inga tribe. Ingas represent one of the richest cultures in Colombia with their roots in the ancient Inka times. Ingas keep a close touch with the nearby tribes in the forests of Amazonas to carry on the ancient traditions while farming coffee. Coffee People has worked alongside with the tribe to help them take their production to a higher level and through this improve their economic welfare.

This coffee is honey process, which is an hybrid of natural and washed coffee. This method gives the coffee striking sweetness and good clarity with a medium-high acidity.

Planadas

In the 50s Planadas region in South of Tolima became the birth place of guerillas. Guerillas claimed the area as „Independent Republic“ and built their base in Marquetalia. For decades the region was controlled by guerillas and paramilitary, making kidnappings and other horrors part of the everyday life in the area.

Now, the region has started to overcome the difficulties – growing coffee is promising a better future for the local people. The soils in this area are very rich in organic nutrients and high ground in the east side of this central mountain range has proved to be the perfect place for growing organic coffee that tastes like no other
