CRUZ LOMA SIDRA & TYPICA MEJORADO | WASHED

CRUZ LOMA SIDRA & TYPICA MEJORADO | WASHED

Cruz Loma is a family run, award winning farm which has been producing coffee for
over 20 years. It is only in the last 6 years that it started focusing on specialty coffee.
Galo Morales is a former technician for Caravela, here he gained much valued
experience which is now focused in his coffees and farm. Along with his wife, Maria
Alexandra, they run a pioneering farm in the country.
Cruz Loma positioned in the 1st place in Taza Dorada 2021 with this Typica Mejorado
Sidra Anaerobic and 3rd place in Cup of Excellence 2022 with the same coffee.

The coffee is handpicked between May and July, this is placed in fermentation
tanks where the cherries ferment anaerobically for 24 hours. The cherries are then
pulped, washed and placed on drying beds for slow drying, during the daytime
under the sun, and at night time inside polytunnels.

Typica Mejorado and Sidra are two varietals with their origin in Ecuador. Both were
developed in a research farm in the Pichincha province, not far from Cruz Loma.
They are both believed to descend from Ethiopian Landraces and crossed with
bourbon. The popularity of these two varieties has grown hugely over the last 5 years due to the quality, complexity and character in cup.

Expect notes of crisp blood orange and grapefruit.
