Ecuador Terrazas del Pisque Natural Gold Label | Green Coffee Beans


Recommended Roast Level

City Plus (Medium)

Tasting Notes

This natural process features a very deep, smooth sweetness that comes together in a perfectly balanced, incredibly clean cup. The touches of acidity are bridged by a super consistent buttery fruitiness reminiscent of that of a fig or plum. The boldness of cocoa powder also sits in the back end of the cup, adding an extra layer of depth to an already delicious profile.

Finca Terrazas del Pisque Coffee Production

Finca Terrazas del Pisque is a 38-hectare farm of which 15 hectares are planted in coffee, the other available land is used for growing avocados and citrus fruits. Located in Ecuador's Pichincha region, this farm boasts an annual production of almost 15,000 kg of specialty coffee annually. In this area of Ecuador, harvest happens nearly year-round and only the ripest cherries are selected for processing. Once picked, cherries are processed as Washed or Naturals, and sometimes fermented Anaerobically first.

For washed lots, cherries are de-pulped, fermented for 36 hours, washed, and dried on raised beds for an average of 12 days. For natural lots, cherries are sorted and placed directly on raised beds and dried for an average of 28-40 days. For anaerobic lots, cherries are placed in a sealed environment and anaerobically fermented under controlled conditions before being placed on raised beds and finished using the natural drying process for an average of 28-40 days.
