Loja and Zamora Chinchipe, the two southernmost provinces of Ecuador bordering Peru, have very distinct climatic conditions.  Located on the eastern side of the Andes, Zamora Chinchipe is affected by the climate of the Amazon jungle with higher humidity and greener mountains.  Situated on the western side of the Andes, Loja experiences drier conditions with winds coming from the arid deserts of northern Peru.  Nestled amongst these two regions within the Andes is the Yacuri nature reserve, where the offering we bring to you is grown by second and third generation coffee farmers in the area.

The coffee farmers contributing to Yacuri use agroforestry systems with a strong emphasis on sustainability, minimizing their impact on the environment. These practices have been passed down from their parents and grandparents, representing a legacy of working in harmony with the environment and protecting it.

While always working to preserve the environment, more recently much emphasis has been placed on quality at both the physical and sensory level.  This is certainly why we were drawn to Yacuri.  It has a pristine and sweet profile with notes of stone fruit, creamy macadamia, and hints of chocolate in the finish making it such a delectable coffee.  So please sip and enjoy!
