Ecuador Manuel Efren Jimenez

£11.00
This coffee has a big strawberry jam energy, followed by a brown sugar sweetness. There’s also a cherry/almond Bakewell slice thing going on, which is pretty enjoyable for the taste buds. When you add milk it’s actually really yummy and works well. We’d say it transforms into a vanilla cheesecake and feels sweeter and heavier. It’s a serious winner.

If you love strawberry jam and cheesecake, you’re going to love drinking this banger from Ecuador. In the south of Ecuador, in the municipality of Espindola you’ll find Manuel Efren’s farm, La Cascarilla. The name of the farm comes from a local tree that is used in ancestral medicine to cure colds.   

Manuel has been growing coffee for 25+ years, he was born into coffee and learnt first-hand from his father how to manage a farm. He switched his focus to speciality coffee 12 years ago and has been following this passion for quality coffee ever since. Conserving native trees and bee-keeping are amongst some of the environmental improvements he has made to their farm. Making these changes has brought a better income and quality of life for his family. On the information sheet from Caravela, there was a note from Manual which read “We invite you to have faith in us because our coffee is produced by a family that cultivates coffee under the principals of environmentally friendly practices, love and passion for each bean”.
