COFFEE

ECUADOR, TESORO DE ZUMBA {FILTER OR ESPRESSO}

from 8.80

Alright, it’s time for another northern South American coffee. This one from Peru’s northern neighbour, Ecuador. This coffee comes from the canton of Chinchipe in the south of Ecuador not too far from where the Peruvian San José de Lourdes is grown and farmed. Great jammy mouthfeel in this cup. Expect citric acids and fruit: lime; lemon; mandarin; etc. The apricot end of stone fruit and caramel to finish. This coffee is farmed by ten small-scale producers and wet-milled on their respective farms after an 18-24 hour “fermentation” (soaking/immersion) period. After the fermentation the coffee is dried on a mixture of concrete patios and raised beds depending on the specific farm. The coffee is intercropped with the shade trees plantain and nogal (walnut). The farmers are part of a co-op called ACRIM which together with another Ecaudorian co-op, APECAP, have been working hard to differentiate their coffees from the Peruvian market and bounce back from the roya (leaf rust) problem which cut production in half in 2015. This coffee is roasted for espresso.

Assembly is roasting this coffee two ways, so you can select if you’d like it roasted for filter or espresso. Ideally to be drunk without milk.
