About this coffee :

在Loja省Puyango州附近的高地中,有一片森林叫做Bosques de Marfil,或者由於周圍有很多人把它稱為Tasques Ta Tagua,因為那裡有大量的Tagua樹,這是一種棕櫚樹。南美洲。該自然保護區面積超過200公頃,靠近Parroquia El Limo。 Marfl大街為該地區居民提供生活和收入。這些塔瓜樹提供了一種種子,社區可以使用它們來製造所有類型的手工藝品,然後將其出售給其他省份的人們。這些手工藝品為社區創造了額外的收入,並可以幫助他們在經濟困難時期生存。

在該區域的中心,有一條從東到西的山脈,稱為El Limo。在這個山脈的高地上,我們榮幸地找到了大約44個小型生產者。這些咖啡種植者種植了Altos de Marfil的咖啡,他們在咖啡生產方面有著悠久的傳統,這意味著他們種植了傳統的品種,有利於特種咖啡的生產。這些生產者的平均年齡約為60歲。

這支咖啡是3個品種的綜合,Caturra,Typica和Bourbon。帶有堅果,可可和柑橘的層次感。濃郁的口感與煉奶甜感。完美的早晨咖啡。

Among the highlands that surround the cantón of Puyango in the province of Loja, there is a Forest called Bosques de Marfil, or as the people around there also call it Bosques de Tagua, due to its abundance Tagua trees, a species of Palm found in South America. This natural reserve extends for more than 200 hectares and is located close to the Parroquia El Limo. The Bosques de Marfil provides life and income to the communities that inhabit the region. These Tagua trees provide a type of seed which the communities use to create all types of art crafts, which they sell to people in other provinces. These art crafts generate extra income for the communities and can help them survive during difficult economic times.

In the centre of this region, there is a mountain range called El Limo which goes from east to west. In the highlands of this mountain range we were privileged to find a group of approximately 44 small-scale producers. The coffee from Altos de Marfil is grown by these coffee growers, who have a very long tradition in coffee production, meaning that they grow traditional varietals, favourable for the production of specialty coffee. The average age of these producers is around 60 years. 

This coffee is a mixture of 3 varietals, Caturra, Typica & Bourbon. As a result you'll get a good complexity of nuts, cocoa, and citrusy flavour profile. Thick mouthfeel pair with condense milk sweetness. The perfect morning cuppa.
