Small-lot, Triple A coffee from Northern Ecuador
Delicate and citric; ideal for single cup brews
In Northwestern Pichincha lies a region located along the Andes Mountain Range, where there are six small scale coffee farmers that contribute to this Alambi lot. Alambi is the name of a famous guest house in the nearby Bellavista Nature Reserve, known as the Cloud Forest Reserve. These producers have come together with the shared vision to produce outstanding coffee with a unique profile that will capture the hearts and attention of anyone who tastes it. After harvesting, the coffee is fermented and washed at micro-mills located on each of the six farms.
Sourcing coffee from Ecuador is challenging and produces less than 1% of the global coffee supply, has varying climates, vast area between farms, difficult terrain and roads to navigate and transport coffee. With all that in mind, finding amazing Ecuadorian coffee is a true gift, and one we are excited to have the opportunity to offer. Our partners have spent many years developing relationships and a local office in Quito to find and maintain the best coffee available.
Sorting for top-tier quality and high 80's point score is what makes this a "Triple A" graded coffee by our partners - and we're honored to roast and share it with you! Dial into honey, lemon candy and sweet, floral undertones by starting with a 1:16.5 brew ratio, filtered water at 208-210℉, a medium-coarse grind, and a 3-3.5 minute brew cycle.
