We are extremly excited to be sharing coffee from legendary producer from Ecuador, Pepe Jijon. A first for September but a relationship we hope to have for many years.
Pepe Jijon is a inspiring producer with an inspiring farm: Finca Soledad. Soledad is also a community-oriented project where Pepe and his family support and employ single mothers who have been abandoned by their husbands. Pepe only grows Typica Mejorada, Geisha and Sydra. The farm is very small with limited production so we are very lucky and thankful to have some of his coffee this year.

'Wave' is referencing a temperature wave, going from higher temperature to lower temperature, utilizing fermentation tanks and refrigerators, in a sustained way that keeps the embryo alive.

The flavours in the Wave Washed reminds of the colours orange and yellow. Stonefruits such as plum and apricot, a sweetness of Orange and honey with sweet cane sugar finish. It has a bright acidity like tangerine.
