Produced by 82 smallholder farmers from five different cantons – Olmedo, Zosoranga, Carimanga, Espindola & Quilanga – this coffee presents a bright citric acidity, delicate melon and berry notes with a delicious lemon drop sweetness and held together with a soft, silky mouthfeel.
Deep in the mountains of Loja, Ecuador, at the convergence of the two water streams Saraguallas and Santa Ana, lies an area rich in culture, tradition, and coffee agriculture. The local communities place great value on craftsmanship, and this extends to their
heritage-steeped coffee production processes, with the use of traditional varieties and techniques established over generations.
Grown in the shade of fruit trees and natural forest, this coffee, although produced by a number of farmers, is testament to the strength of their traditions in that the resulting cup is as clean and bright as a single-estate lot. It goes to show that you don’t necessarily need unique varieties or experimental processing techniques to produce a delicious coffee.
