Aponte Honey

A customer (and staff) favorite from the get-go, this is our fourth year buying this stellar coffee, and we’re glad it’s back. This coffee brings all the things we love in a Colombian coffee–brightness, nice body, complexity, balance, chocolatey-finish–with the addition of a honey/pear/apricot like sweetness–a result of the coffees unique “honey” processing method–whereby the coffee is fermented and dried with some of the coffee fruit still in contact with the seed.

Orders received by 5pm Thursday will be delivered or ship Friday. Orders received after that will go out the following Friday. 

Free Delivery & Shipping: We offer free delivery for all of Pittsburgh and many surrounding neighborhoods for orders of 2 bags or more ($30+). Shipping is free anywhere in the US for orders of $45 or more. Otherwise, we share shipping and you pay $5 flat rate anywhere in the US.

NOTE: If you choose “French Press” grind, expect it to be finer than usual, so you’re guaranteed good extraction. Some ultra fine coffee particles will make it through the screen and create a flavorful, albeit slightly opaque cup. In other words, we choose flavor over aesthetics. 🙂   If you want to keep your cup looking cleaner, choose a pour over grind.

MORE ABOUT THIS COFFEE

Narino, Colombia has been growing highly sought-after coffee for a long time. The Inga community of Aponte is comprised of descendants of the ancient, pre-hispanic Incas, and was once peaceful. In the 1990's, outside influence from the rest of Colombia came in the form of drug cartels and paramilitary guerillas, and the region became a haven for illegal agriculture and drug production. Following that dark period, after government intervention and lots of hard work, this peaceful mountain region was returned to the Inga community and a state of relative prosperity has ensued--much of the illegal crops and farms have been replaced with Caturra coffee plants. The regions very high altitude (avg 2,150 Meters above sea level!) and nutrient-rich ash from the nearby Galeras Volcano makes for an exceptionally complex and sweet coffee. Great coffee, and a great example of coffee providing economic opportunity to change lives.
