Ecuador Finca Lugmapata - Mejorado
*Please note: all items in your cart will roast and ship together.
A beautiful bouquet of jasmine, lime, and pineapple. Crisp acidity like a brut Champagne paired with a honey like sweetness. Simply one of the most intoxicating washed coffees we have come across in quite some time.
This coffee comes from a variety developed in Ecuador by NESTLE called 'Typica Mejorado' meaning 'Improved Typica'. This coffee presents a cup profile unlike any Typica though. An exhilarating, sweet, geisha-like experience! The amazing fragrance hints that this is no ordinary Typica-variety coffee. Recent genetic testing has shown that there is actually no Typica lineage in this coffee at all (despite the name). It's a hybrid of Bourbon-variety coffees and Ethiopian line. Because of its common sounding name this variety is often over looked compared to the much trendier hybrid in Ecuador called Sidra. But we consistently find the Typica Mejorado variety to be even more impressive on the cupping table, especially from higher altitude farms like Finca Lugmapata
