Produced from local cultivars by 25 small holders from Taisha in collaboration with exporter Juan Peña, this coffee is seriously indulgent. Rich, velvety body with huge notes of dark chocolate brownie, hazelnut and caramel.

Arrival Date: March 8th, 2022

Acidity & Brightness: Gentle acidity, very sweet

Balance & Finish: Fairly balanced, lingering sweet finish

Body & Texture: Full, rich body, creamy texture

Flavor Traits: Dark chocolate brownie, caramel, hazelnut

Grade: SHG (Strictly high Grown) very dense, grown at 1600-1800 masl

Processing: Fully washed and dried on raised beds.

Grower: 25 producers organized around Macus community in collaboration with Juan Peña of CaféExporto

Region: Taisha, Morona Santiago, Ecuador

Variety: Local Arabica Cultivars

Roasting: Start with a Full City (Medium), or after 1st crack has ended and before 2nd crack has begun. Lighter roasts (as 1st crack is trailing off) will showcase more acidity and fruity sweetness such as pear. Darker roasts (the first few snaps of 2nd crack), will turn the chocolate darker and accent more caramelized sweetness. This coffee roasts very evenly.

Reminder: This is raw coffee. You have to roast it before brewing.

Our Review: "Have you ever paused to think about all of the amazing origin countries that the equator passes through? The most obvious, Ecuador, might not be the first to come to mind. Ecuador is one of the more elusive origins, likely the result of a high cost of production, which makes it more difficult to compete in a global market. Juan Peña, who established an export company called CaféExporto, has been working on ways to capture quality premiums with a group of producers from the community of Macus who cultivate coffee on just a few acres of land. Juan has been providing seed and technical support to a group of 25 producers. Through a model of collaboration, Juan has been able to build a traceable community blend with a vibrant regional profile. Each producer has their own micro-mill to carefully harvest cherries, depulp, ferment, wash and gently dry the parchment on raised beds. CaféExporto provides crucial logistical support for things like warehousing, quality control and preparing coffee for export to the international market, which provides better income for everyone to reinvest in their farms and strengthen their families’ livelihoods.

We don't see a lot of great coffee out of Ecuador, so we always get excited when there's a chance to snatch up a real catch like this one! The best word for this coffee is indulgent. We're talking dark chocolate and brownies with hazelnut and drizzled all over with caramel. This is a choco-holics dream! Rich, velvety texture and excellent balance round out an absolute treat of a cup.
