Colombia Inga - Tablón de Gómez
Aponte is a small town and Indigenous reservation of the Inga people, located in the municipality of Tablón de Gomez, northeast of the department of Nariño. This region is also located in the Juananmbu canyon which has an elevation of 2100 masl. The historical significance of this town comes from it being considered the northernmost point of the Inca empire in the 15th century.
The coffee in Aponte is picked ripe, de-pulped, and then fermented with the mucilage still on. Once fermented it's placed inside parabolic dryers. The high altitude and strong cold winds make for denser, homogenous coffees that dry relatively quickly.
Tablón de Gómez, produced in the Inga Community, is an incredibly well-balanced coffee. Initially tasting of a mouthwatering bouquet of juicy berries, this coffee lives up to the potential of the Honey Process by leveling out into a sweet praline and honey finish.
