Onyx Coffee Labs Colombia Aponte Village Honey
Story: This coffee is produced by the indigenous Inga people deep in the Juanambú canyon. These people belonged to the Inca Empire before the Spanish arrived and their communal land is still led by a "cabildo," a group of elders that maintains their ancestral laws and traditions.
Roaster’s Notes: Raw Honey - Papaya - Black Tea - Plum
Our Take: This coffee is an excellent all-around coffee. We get a lot of sweetness with a full, creamy body and dark stone fruit around the edges. This is our go-to for our flash brew iced coffee!
Roaster Background: Onyx Coffee Lab, based out of Arkansas, is widely known as the industry leader in transparent and ethical green coffee buying. They don’t operate on payment contracts; everything is paid for 50% up front and 50% when it lands. They freely share what they pay per pound green and what they internally score each coffee at.
They’re also known for tacking on extra for producers doing good in their communities to help support those initiatives such as building schools and infrastructure.
