ECUADOR - La Josefina Typica


We’re showcasing three varietal lots from Finca La Josefina in northern Ecuador. Taste them side by side or enjoy them one by one the choice is yours, all we can say is that they are delicious and we can’t choose a favourite!

Ligia Merizalde and Leopoldo Andrade set out to have their own company, to be part of the environmental landscape of specialty coffee production in Ecuador and to produce sustainable coffee. In 2014 Finca La Josefina was developed and is located within the Cayambe-Coca Natural Reserve, the largest protected area with the biggest plant and animal diversity in Ecuador.

Named in honour of their grandmother, La Josefina is divided into more than 15 small batches, each batch is planted with a single variety only allowing for specific attention to each variety based on its needs. 

Typica forms the genetic backbone of much of specialty coffee and has an elegant, floral and fruit-forward cup profile. This washed lot is exactly that with notes of sweet red grape, cola and hints of vanilla. Couldn’t be more typica-l of the variety. Clean, crisp drink this one all day, every day!
