Among the mountain forests of Ecuador, near the border with Peru, is the region of Chinchipe, located in southern Zamora.  Chinchipe is known for its rich biodiversity especially with its close proximity to the Amazon rainforest.  There is also a rich indigenous culture with the presence of various Inca ethnic groups in the area.  These residents highly value their environment not only for its beauty but also because they rely on the land for their livelihood.  As a result, the thirty farmers who contribute to Rancho Carmen pride themselves on their sustainable farming practices and have been doing so for the past 30 years.  Their careful cultivation of the trees, nourishment of the land and careful selection of varietals make some of the best coffees in the area.  Coffee growers from this community work with the cooperative ACRIM, which follows this vision: “The sustainable progress and development of communities can only be done by uniting, working as a team, and respecting the environment together.”

 

We selected this delicious lot from Rancho Carmen for its classic yet balanced profile of juicy pear, brown sugar, vanilla, and notes of ginger in the finish.  So please enjoy this delicious cup!
