Typica Mejorado Ecuador. Typica Mejorado. Natural. 

Every bean has a story
A surprising Typica Mejorado from Finca Soledad in Ecuador.

Finca Soledad stands at 1,515 masl in a terrace rising above the Intag Valley in the Imbabura province in Ecuador. Surrounded by endemic trees in biodynamic balance, the terroir expresses what nature has to give in full. It's a 120 hectare cloud forest with a small, 4 hectare production of Typica Mejorado, Gesha and Sidra. Owned and operated by Pepe Jijon and his family. The remaining 110+ hectares of La Soledad are composed of dense cloud forest canopy filled with biodiversity, as well as a once-operational sugarcane production. The belief is biodiversity will drive the quality of the coffee, not human created inputs.

 

About Pepe


Pepe was born in Brazil and is a psychologist by trade. Before coffee, Pepe was the first Latin American to solo climb all 7 summits - the highest summit on each continent. In 2010, while working for the Red Cross in Ecuador, he found and purchased this farm with his father. They decided to buy the land in order to develop coffee. The place where he now says he finds peace! A few years after acquiring the land, Pepe found coffee, and ever since this has been his love and passion.

His passion for coffee culture propelled him to gain several important certifications in the search for excellent coffee. Finca Soledad overlooks a beautiful valley and is surrounded by a restored forest, and all of this natural wonder can be tasted in the cups that Pepe produces.

One of his principle motivations to work in coffee production has been the possibility of contributing to economic and environmental sustainability around his region and the world, as well as the ability to enjoy the flowering of the coffee plant. For Pepe, the ability to live on the land and support the development of Ecuador is a deep passion.

The approach to coffee is with a biodynamic mindset, believing the full moon cycle is the ideal time for harvest and that listening to nature is the way forward when it comes to agriculture.
