Country, Region: Ecuador, Pichincha, La Perla, Nanegal
Producer: Henry and Verena Gaibor, Finca Maputo
Elevation: 1350 masl
Additional Growing Information: Although the altitude is relatively low, the specific microclimate in this area has high humidity, mist covered afternoons, and especially cool nights creating its own unique taste profile.
Roaster's approach: "The special microclimate of this delicate coffee definitely requires a more attentive roast profile than usual. Careful heat application up front still creates some fierce cracking - the heat is pulled back further and airflow increased to finish the roast right."
