    ABOUT THE BEAN

     

    Sidra - or Bourbon Sidra as it is frequently called, was created by cross-breeding bourbon and typica. The result is a variety which has quickly gained prominence and spread across Ecuador due its potential for extremely high cup quality. Sidra is famed for its floral structure, deep sweetness and prominent acidity.

    For over 100 years the Merino Family has owned the land Finca Lugmapata stands on. Named after a fruit Enrique, the farmer, loved to eat when growing up. The farm was inspired by his childhood memories and so is his coffee.

    The specialty coffee journey of this once upon a time cattle farm began 5 years ago from 7,000 Sidra and Typica Mejorado trees planted by Enrique. This farm is now a full family business ran by Enrique, his sister Rosio and his nephew Roberto. 

    This farm is well on its way to become a 60 hectare specialty coffee farm. The Merino's wouldn't change this farm and coffee for anything...and tasting the final product, neither would we. 

    We promise that neither will you.
