Over recent years, Galo and Alexandra Morales have made a name for themselves as two of the country's leading coffee producers. Coffees from the husband-and-wife team placed 1st in the 2021 Best of Ecuador competition, and 2nd in the same contest the following year. They followed these successes up with a 3rd place in the 2022 Ecuador Cup of Excellence.
This particular lot was handpicked, pulped, fermented for 24 hours, and then dried in a controlled environment until the desired moisture level was reached.
In the cup, we've found this coffee to have notes of hazelnut and citrus fruit, with a notably sticky texture driven by the post-harvest honey process.
