La Merced, Ecuador
Introducing the first of two microdots from our newest Direct-Trade partner Alexandra Viteri! We first visited Alexandra's farm Finca La Merced in August while we were looking for competition caliber coffees in Ecuador. Alexandra, a doctor from Quito acquired La Merced 23 years ago because she wanted to be in a place where she could admire the raw nature that surrounds the farm.
While La Merced is over 100 Hectares, only 5 of those are dedicated to coffee.
