Todds Faves - Ecuador Varieties
This sampler pack includes 2 oz tubes featuring three coffee varieties from Finca las tolas, Ecuador. The producer, Arnaud cause, is a French agronomist who has been living in Latin America for decades working on different coffee projects in central and South America. He ultimately landed in Ecuador and bought his farm outside of tulip de Pichincha which he calls las tolas. It is a small, varietal focused farm. Arnaud is as detail-minded a farmer, growing pacamara, caturra, a very small amount of java and lastly bourbon. The bourbon is specifically tekisik bourbon, which is the single best quality yielding varietal in Latin America outside of the finicky geisha.
