Abel Salinas’s farm is located in Saraguro, an area of southern Ecuador that has recently become famous for producing some of the highest-quality coffees in the country. Inspired by his neighbors' success growing coffee, Abel planted coffee on a small plot of land seven years ago. The rest is history: Abel's coffee excelled in local and national cupping competitions, including a first-place prize at Ecuador’s first Cup of Excellence competition in 2021. The lot we purchased this year underwent the same 48-hour in-cherry fermentation process as the 2021 Cup of Excellence winning lot. The result is coffee with a lovely balance of citrus acidity and honey-like sweetness, layered with soft tropical fruit tones reminiscent of papaya.
