Description

Finca Lugmapata is a family-run operation located in Pallatanga, Chimborazo, Ecuador. Situated between 1,650 and 2,000 mmsn (meters above sea level), we grow several different varieties, including: Bourbon Sidra, Typica Mejorado, Pache and Sarchimore. In 2012, the first 20,000 trees were planted and by 2022, we expect to have well over 50,000 coffee trees planted. Our first year of production was in 2016.
We have a very meticulous operation, including selecting only the ripest cherries, double washing them to ensure consistency in the fermentation process, various fermentation experiments, taking great care in the washing and drying and proper storage of the coffee post-drying, these achievements are no surprise! In addition, the social component of this farm is really what makes it stand out. In order to help improve the lives of those living in and around Pallatanga, they prepare in their nursery new trees, mostly Bourbon Sidra, which are destined for new coffee growers in the area. The idea is to teach them how to produce high quality coffees, create sustainable businesses and improve their livelihoods. Finca Lugmapata will be purchasing the cherry from their neighbors to ensure more consistent cup quality year over year.
