Discover the delicious, natural taste that sets Ecuadorian coffee apart
The amazing biodiversity of the 4 regions and richness of their volcanic soils allow Ecuador to grow different types of specialty coffee. Ecuador’s altitude is famous for growing Arabica coffee beans that have the perfect balance of acidity, sweetness and bitterness. The northwest region of the country grows mainly Robusta coffee beans. This region offers the most complex and diverse coffee, with high acidity, body and a complex aroma. To the south, Loja, produces coffee with defined acidity, medium sweetness and a delicate aroma. One of the most unique coffee-growing regions is the Galapagos Islands. Here, cool winds and the rich volcanic soil produce coffee that is delicious, well balanced and rounded.
World-Class coffee from the Galapagos Islands
Our artisan coffee comes from a beautiful island called Santa Cruz, one of the largest towns in the Galapagos Islands. This unique island is home to the Charles Darwin Research Station and has windswept beaches, lush reserves where giant tortoises roam freely and massive volcanic craters.
