Product Description

Finca Las Afiladeras is located in Cariamanga, Loja, Ecuador and run by Alberto Jumbo, who has been producing coffee for almost 20 years. The farm sits at a range of elevations from between 1,700 and 1,900 metersand is a total of 5 Ha, 3 of which are currently in production and the other 2 expected to produce in the coming years. Within those two lots, Alberto grows Typica, Typica Mejorado, Caturra and Bourbon. Upon the cherries arriving to the wet-mill, they are de-pulped and fermented for between 24-30 hoursand then dried for approximately 12 days, depending on the climate. Alberto’s oldest son, Luis Diego, is actually the one in charge of the farm, mostly with post-harvest processing and is extremely motivated to experiment and find ways to produce higher quality coffees. The farm is called “Las Afiladeras” or “The Sharpeners” because there is a rock found in the region that is often used to sharpen knives.  --Info Courtesy of The Coffee Quest
