Quality Report - Ecuador Finca Terrazas del Pisque Bourbon Natural

About This Coffee

Finca Terrazas del Pisque is a 38-hectare farm of which 15 hectares are planted in coffee, the other available land is used for growing avocados and citrus fruits. Located in Ecuador's Pichincha region, this farm boasts an annual production of almost 15,000 kg of specialty coffee a year. In this area of Ecuador, harvest happens nearly year-round and only the ripest cherries are selected for processing. Once picked, cherries are processed as Washed or Naturals, and sometimes fermented Anaerobically first.

For washed lots, cherries are depulped, fermented for 36 hours, washed, and dried on raised beds for an average of 12 days.
