Bagged Coffee: Colombia Nariño Aponte
About the Coffee: This is a seasonal offering from this farm and we roast it Light.
Natural Tasting Notes: Caramel, Tangerine, Sweet Cherries
About the Farm: The producers of this region, an indigenous community called the Inga, were part of the northernmost Inca empire, which colonized the south of Colombia in the late 14th century. Land here is communal, and the population is ruled by a “cabildo” or group of elders who make sure ancestral traditions are upheld. The population of this area have unfortunately been affected by earthquakes in recent years and have turned to specialty coffee to help produce income for the region.
Most coffees from Colombia are processed using the traditional washed method. This lot, however, goes through a more complex honey process that involves leaving the bean to dry in its mucilage for 20-45 days, using the heavy, cold winds of the region to help promote an even drying process.
RedEye Coffee is a woman- and minority-owned local business. We are thrilled to be working with amazing farms and coops committed to empowering people. Our single origin coffees are seasonal honoring the harvest and ensuring optimal tasting notes. We proudly roast in TLH.
