Why You'll Love It:
Colombia is known for producing some of the highest quality coffee in the world. This unique example, grown in the remote highlands of Narino, is dried in the pulp of its cherry turning the surface of the bean red. This Red Honey process gives the coffee a fruity sweetness tempered with vibrant acidity.
Story of the Bean:
The road through the Colombian Andes ends in Aponte where the Inga community cultivates some of the highest quality coffees. These skilled Inga producers are descendants of the Incas who have maintained their identity on these remote peaks. However, in the 1990's, the Colombian conflict reached the Inga and their isolated plantations became forcibly involved in poppy production. As Colombia worked towards peace, the Inga have been cultivating exceptional coffees. This coffee of unprecedented fruit and floral qualities comes from a community of unprecedented strength and resilience.

Another hit in our household
Yet another amazing coffee from La Colombe!
The coffee is excellent. It is nothing like something you can buy at the store. It’s truly authentic Colombian coffee
This may be the best coffee I have ever had. It is mellow, but very flavorful. I highly recommend it
Usually a hardcore dark coffee drinker as somebody noted below, but chose a free cup of CIRH when I bought my latest bag of beans in store. It was delicious straight off the drip. Can't wait to finish my current bag so I can pick one up.
I really enjoy this - it brews nice and smooth, and a bit sweet.
