tasting iconIn the cup

We get a sweet profile of red berries, delicate white florals and a bright malic acidity that reminds us of pears. This coffee has a very light body with a clean finish.

producer iconAbout The Producer

Pepe Jijon is an inspiring producer with an inspiring farm: Finca Soledad. His Son, Jose, has been learning and working at Soledad for much of his life. His farm, San Pedro, and Francisco's farm are what make up Fincas Del Putushio. A sister farm duo creating the next evolution in coffee farming for the Jijon family. September is proud to support Jose and Pepe's hard work at Putushio. The farm is very small with limited production so we are very lucky and thankful to have some of his coffee this year.

process iconProcessing

This coffee is traditional washed processed. Coffee is picked and depulped the same day, left overnight in dry parchment. Washed in fresh spring water and slow dried on covered raised beds for thirty days.

variety iconVariety

Mejorado has become the gem of Ecuador. Although it’s certainly similar in name to Typica, Typica Mejorado is not related to this variety. It is now known to be a cross-pollination of Bourbon and Ethiopian Landrace.
