It is rumoured that Piendamo was the first coffee-producing community of Cauca, and still maintains its cultural production. Prior to the Spanish arrival, local indigenous populations called the Nasas populated these valleys. The tribes were able to preserve their culture and tradition throughout the Cauca department over time and still maintain traditional methods of coffee production today. Other indigenous communities include the Paeces, Misak and Guambianos.
