- La Papaya (Saraguro, Ecuador)
Strawberry, Concord Grape, Toffee, Range Life
Man, we are so excited to offer this coffee again. A couple of years ago we had a pulped natural from Hacienda La Papaya and the intense strawberry, toasted marshmallow, and jamminess blew our minds. This year we are fortunate enough to be serving a washed coffee from La Papaya and our high expectations were not only met, but surpassed. Interestingly, Don Juan Pena, the owner and operator of Hacienda La Papaya, has only been growing coffee on his Saraguro plantation for about 5 years—previously, he grew long stemmed roses. After a bad year for roses 5 years back, he began experimenting with growing coffee and has continued his experimenting to create a healthy and horticulturally intentional plantation which grows incredibly delicious coffees.
