The beautiful town of Amaluza is the main parrioquia, or parish, of the canton of Espíndola in Loja, one of the most southern provinces of Ecuador. Loja is not only known as the musical and cultural capital of Ecuador and an area of great natural beauty, it also grows some of its best coffee and is responsible for about 20% of the Arabica they export. This lot is the collaborative work of 10 smallholders from Amaluza, who each wash, ferment and sun-dry their parchment at their individual farms before consolidating at the dry mill. The Ecuadorian coffee industry has great potential and is slowly becoming more attuned to the specialty market. We hope to see the sector thrive in the future as more and more buyers turn their attention to this beautiful country. After a couple years of cupping various harvest and waiting for the right lot, we’re thrilled to finally be able to present you with our first ever Ecuadorian coffee.
