This lot is produced by a collection of smallholder farmers in rural areas of Aponte, Nariño in Colombia. The vast majority of these growers are a part of a native indigenous reserve called Aponte which runs along the borders of the Andean mountain range where the weather conditions are perfect for honey processing, resulting in complex and delicate cup profiles.
In the 1990s, these beautiful mountains fell victim to conflict and drug trafficking. Luckily, in the last decade the native Aponte tribes reclaimed their land and made room for a new culture: coffee. The elevation of the mountains, combined with the Galeras Volcano constantly shedding nutrient-rich ash, makes for an impressively complex and sweet coffee. Producers process coffee on their own properties, drying Honey coffee in stacked raised bed solar dryers on their farms.
This microlot is 100% Caturra. This variety originated in Minas Gerais, Brazil. It is a natural mutation of Red Bourbon. Caturra produces more coffee and is more resistant to plant diseases than Bourbon.
