Finca Bruhwer is located in Quilanga, Loja, Ecuador and run by Karla Garcia and her partner. The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 1,900 meters and consists of 3 hectares of coffee, all planted with 100% Typica (or "criollo" as they call it in Ecuador). Upon cherry arriving to the wet-mill, the washed lots are fermented for 40-45 hours and then taken to dry on African beds, inside parabolic dryers for approximately 15 days, depending on the climate; the natural lots are dried between the sun and the parabolic dryers, for approximately 20 days. The operation is more than just a farm and is run by two partners, who also buy in cherry for a local roasted brand that they have in Ecuador. The cherry purchases, they buy from neighbors near their other farm, in Zamora, but they are interested in buying cherry from neighbors in Quilanga, whom also have farms at higher elevations, with lots of Typica. They have held talks with the growers to discuss farm management techniques and to see if they can help them improve their quality pre-harvest, so they can maximize the potential in post-harvest processing. --Info Courtesy of The Coffee Quest
