Introducing our Lugmapata Ecuador. We are very excited about the beautiful coffees coming out of Ecuador this year and this coffee in particular stood out. It’s silky, sparkling, and bursting with berry, cherry, green grape, and floral notes. If you are a lover of nuanced florals and berry notes in your coffee, this is the coffee for you. We highly recommend snagging a bag today!
About: Finca Lugmapata is a family-run operation led by Roberto Vasconez that planted their first 20,000 trees in 2012 and expected to have 50,000 coffee trees planted by this year (2022). In their first year of production (2016), Finca Lugmapata achieved 3rd place in the Taza Dorada and the following year (2017) they won first place. These achievements are no surprise given their meticulous operation. The process involves selecting only the ripest cherries, double washing in cherry to ensure consistency during fermentation, taking great care in washing and drying, as well as proper storage. In addition, they are social stewards giving back to their community. In order to help improve the lives of those in and around Pallatanga, their nursery prepared new trees (primarily Bourbon Sidra), which are given to new growers in the area. The idea is to teach them how to produce high quality coffees, create sustainable businesses and boost their livelihoods. Finca Lugmapata will be purchasing the cherry from their neighbors to ensure consistent cup quality year after year.
