The Inga community of Aponte is located in the province of Nariño, which has three ranges of Andean mountains and shares its southern border with Ecuador. The community is comprised of descendants of the Incas and was isolated high in the mountains from much of the world until the mid-nineteenth century. In the 1990’s, its remote location combined with its proximity to the coast and borders made the community a target for guerilla groups, drug traffickers and paramilitaries who forced the Ingas into poppy and heroin production. Within the last decade the area has returned to a peaceful state with the eradication of illegal crop and new growth of coffee. This particular coffee is grown at an average altitude of 2,150 meters above sea level and is sourced from various smallholder farms. The high elevation along with nutrient-rich ash from the nearby Galeras Volcano provide ideal conditions for coffee growth. The harvest period here is short, starting in April and ending in June each year. The method of honey processing lends a somewhat sweeter and fruity profile to the coffee. A cup of this coffee can yield notes of strawberry, blueberry, and lemon.
