Sourcing & Processing

Finca Cruz Loma is setting the standard for coffees from Ecuador. Run by Galo Morales and Maria Alexandra Rivera, this 350-hectare farm has been in Galo's family for over 80 years. Cruz Loma is located in the small town community of San José de Minas where harvests involve the whole family as well as hired pickers.

This careful and unique process starts with washing the picked cherries and placing them in anaerobically sealed tanks to ferment. After 24-48 hours, the coffee is removed from the tanks to be de-pulped then put back in for additional fermentation.After a few days, the coffee is removed, washed, and set to dry on raised beds under shaded canopies. This results in a deliciously clean and juicy cup.
