Nariño is one of Colombia’s 32 Departments. It shares a southern border with Ecuador and is home to thousands of smallholder coffee producing families. Colombia’s three ranges of Andean mountains converge in Nariño, presenting ideal altitudes and fertile soil for high grown Arabica production.
Nariño’s particular geography and proximity to coastal and land borders have historically transformed it into a corridor for illicit trade routes, resulting in unwarranted violence against residents of remote mountain farms. Today, thanks to the particularly resilient and fearless spirit of Nariño’s farmers, the small region is a respected nucleus of coffee innovation.
The Inga community of Aponte is comprised of descendants of the ancient, pre-Hispanic Incas. During the period of conquest, they remained isolated high in the mountains that became their natural refuge. This community didn’t resume significant contact with the rest of Colombia until the second half of the nineteenth century. Unfortunately, in the 1990s, contact was mostly criminal, and the Inga’s refuge became a place of cruelty. For years, the tribe was forcibly involved in poppy and heroin production under the influence of guerrilla groups, drug traffickers, and paramilitaries. The once-peaceful mountains teemed with illegal plantations and violence, in which the Ingas were trapped until as recently as fifteen years ago.
In the last decade the mountains have become a safe zone for the Inga tribe, and illegal crops were eradicated to give way to a new culture: coffee
The Caturra variety has been planted in the Inga territory on smallholder properties in the Resguardo Inga Aponte, at an average of 2150 meters above sea level. This elevation, combined with the Galeras volcano constantly shedding nutrient-rich ash, makes for an exceptionally complex and sweet coffee.
