Colombia: Nariño Aponte Royal Reserva Honey
Colombia is just about synonymous with coffee. We're happy to share a standout offering from the country to show what coffee from the region can truly be.
The Nariño region is found in southwest Colombia, and offers some of the higher mountain ranges. The taste and aroma of the coffee from Nariño is unique within the country. Paired with a red honey process, the Aponte Royal Reserva is truly something special. To highlight the origin, we keep this coffee to a light roast.
This Colombia reminds us of fall, with apple, citrus, and molasses sweetness.
You'll get a sweet, slightly nutty cup in a Chemex. Light and smooth in a press pot. A beautiful espresso for both straight shots and lattes.
Sold as whole bean. Find out more in our FAQs.

The Colombia brew has been my favorite so far!
I bought a pound of these specialty coffee beans from a vendor at my town's Saturday farmers market. He and I talked about types of coffee I've enjoyed in the past, and I followed his suggestion to try this bean. I've enjoyed the full flavor and smooth taste, which measured up to his rcommendation.
