This particular coffee blend hails from the Inzá municipality, nestled within the picturesque Tierradentro region, situated on the western side of Cauca. What makes this coffee truly exceptional is not just its flavor but also the unique story behind its cultivation. Inzá is a place where tradition and community converge, with a rich cultural tapestry woven by the Paeces indigenous tribe, who constitute approximately 80% of the region’s population.
These dedicated smallholder growers, who happen to be members of the Paeces tribe, own and cultivate small parcels of land nestled at an impressive elevation of 1700 meters above sea level. It’s at this high altitude that they meticulously nurture coffee plants, primarily of the Castillo and Caturra varieties. This choice of elevation and coffee varietals imparts distinct flavor profiles and characteristics to the beans, making them stand out in the world of specialty coffee.
So, when you savor a cup of this coffee, you’re not only indulging in a delicious brew but also connecting with the cultural heritage and dedication of the Paeces people, whose ancestral lands in the Tierradentro region have given rise to this exceptional coffee experience.
