Edgar Cueva is 55 years old.  He has 1 daughter and 4 sons , Edgar lives in La Libertad, a small town in the canton of Quilanga in the Province of Loja, in southern Ecuador. Edgar has lived here all his life and has always been dedicated to coffee growing, an activity inherited by his parents. The farm has 2 hectares of Criollo or Typica coffee and is located 2 hours walking from your house. Every morning he goes to his farm to harvest 100% mature beans and return in the afternoon to their home where they have a small benefic center to depulp, wash and wash coffee. The coffee remains approximately 12 hours in cherry and the next day in the morning, when  coffee is depulped;  afterwards it remains 24 hours more in fermentation, the next day the coffee is washed and put to dry in “marquesinas”  or “African beds”, for approximately 15 days. This process makes Don Edgar Cueva's coffee develop special and characteristic flavors of his farm.
This coffee is a portion of the entire harvest of the Edgar Cueva family crop encompassing a total of 4 bags! It is our honor to share this exquisite coffee. Ecuador - Fundochamba, La Libertad, Quilanga, Loja
