Ecuador! We have really been enjoying these coffees for the past few years. You get some of the same kinds of florals as you do with Ethiopian coffees, but there's almost more complexity to them. Incredible sweetness too. There's plenty of acidity too, but in a soft way - it's very present, but subtle. This is our first time working with this particular coffee and we are very excited about it. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

This coffee is roasted to a "standard light" level. It’s important to note that neither “standard light” nor “Nordic light” give any signs of roasty flavor, no matter how high you push your extractions. The only difference is that at a given extraction percentage, let’s say 22%, the Nordic light roast will have slightly more acidity and slightly less sweetness than the standard light roast. This can cause issues if you are equipment-limited to let’s say 20% extraction (like if you have a very cheap grinder). A Nordic light roast coffee may always taste underextracted (sour, vegetal) at that yield, whereas a standard light roast may give you enough sweetness to be an enjoyable brew.

From our importer:

"Amaluza is the main town, or “parroquia”, inside the municipality of Espíndola. This
municipality has seven parroquias, but Amaluza is the only one that is considered urban.
Amaluza was founded by Fray Bartolomé Ruiz de las Casas. Besides being the most
commercial and developed parroquia inside Espíndola, Amaluza is also known for its
beautiful churches, where people from all over Ecuador come to get married.
Amaluza is a popular tourist destination because of the Conjunto Lacustre de Amaluza y
Jimbura, an area full of beautiful lakes and rivers. Just like any good coffee origin, this
place is also well known for amazing views and landscapes from the coffee farms."
