This is our second year buying from the Merino family in Chimborazo, Ecuador. Their farm, Lugmapata, has won numerous awards for its stellar quality. Lugmapata is located in the municipality of Pallatanga and is situated between 1650 and 2000 masl. This year we bought two single variety lots from these folks. This particular lot is 100% Typica Mejorado, which, despite what its name implies, is actually a cross between Bourbon and Ethiopian landraces. Kudos to our importing partner, The Coffee Quest, and World Coffee Research for doing the legwork on solving that mystery. We're so thrilled to once again offer coffee from this amazing farm.
Tasting Notes: lemonade, dark chocolate, rose petals
