At 1520 mmns In a dry primary forest, in the county of Nambacola, Gonzanamá town of Loja province, the coffee trees of Finca El Arenal are grown!
There are 7 km of gravel road crossing sugar canes and beautiful landscapes that call for good photography.
With some luck you can see chontos (bambi), little foxes, squirrels and rabbits, as well as more than 20 species of birds. Faique and ceibos trees lead us through this magical forest, where we lovingly care for our Geisha and Villa Sarchi plants.
We keep respect and harmony with the community that collaborates with us, as well as with the environment that shelters us and allows us to work in the fields.
We work with good agricultural practices, we ration the use of water and we use the residual water in the irrigation of crops in the postharvest area, that is 7km away. We also use pulp as fertilizer. We practice reforestation and we bet on an environment of minimal waste to partially give back to nature.
We are new producers, we dedicate ourselves fully to this project, which we have been in since 2018, after restarting ourselves in many aspects of our lives.
Coffee is not only the most drunk drink after water, it delights, falls in love, is passionate and is a therapy in every aspect.
Coffee goes with everything and everyone
Coffee is art, it is an encounter, it is a pretext for everything, and in it there is a whole revolution that energizes the whole world.
We are very happy in this exciting and refreshing world, and we work in continuous processes, to improve quality and delight our consumers
Cup of Excellence is a great opportunity to show the whole world the benefits of our country's coffees!
