Loja Sun dried organic Coffeefrom Ecuador.
Origin and Plantation
This exquisite coffee comes from the region of Loja, located at the southern highland slope of Ecuador. The plantation lies at an altitude of 1,900 m in the Andes where we can find the best climatic conditions for the cultivation and sun drying of this excellent Arabica coffee. The hand-picked coffee beans are thoroughly cleaned and, thus, rid of the fruit pulp. The Loja Sun coffee is then spread out evenly on “sun patios” where the coffee is slowly and evenly dried in the sun, reducing the humidity content to 11═12 %. Then, the coffee is stored for at least 30 days and is skinned only just before its export. This is how it receives its excellent taste full of character.
Character and Taste of the Loja Sun dried Organic Coffee
This perfected coffee excels due to its round body with a nippy tanginess and a fine, chocolaty aftertaste. A must-have for any coffee enthusiast.
Ecuadorian coffee has a long history. It was introduced in the early 19th Century and became the main export product in the early 20th Century. Due to problems with bad harvests and poor production methods, which impeded a homogeneous quality, coffees from Ecuador never made it into the list of top-quality coffees. Like other coffee prod using countries close by, Ecuador has perfect climatic and geographical conditions for growing coffee and excellent qualities can therefore be found.
