Ecuador Luz Chinchay and Flora Bermeo Microlot
We are starting to work more with small producers in the Cariamanga and Espindola areas of Ecuador, near the border with Peru. This is where Luz Chinchay and Flora Bermeo both have farms with altitudes ranging from 1770 to 1820 meters, planted entirely in old Typica cultivar. The cup has a "buttered toast" roast taste, with fruited accents that add a slight winey hint to the cup. It's a classic cup similar to some old-growth Colombia types, back when Colombia was also planted in Typica. Keep it in the City roast range to enjoy the cultivar nuances or roast to Full City for a nice SO espresso.
