The coffee story

The farm
Hacienda Santa Gertrudis is nestled in the  influence area of Podocarpus national park and  just a few minutes away from Vilcabamba, world  famous for it’s pleasent climate and the longevity  of it’s inhabitants.

Our history
In the year of 1954, Luis Emilio Eguiguren Burneo planted the first coffee trees in  Hacienda Santa Gertrudis, comercializing the  product in the surrounding marketplaces.  Since then, he introduced innovations in the 
zone improving the quality of the bean and  the post harvest processings. Over six decades later our curiosity still  
nourishes the constant quest for  excellence  in the cup. Our passion bears within one  conviction: few places gather the best  climate, organic and soil conditions like Loja,  turning it doubtlessly in a privileged origin of  specialty coffee. Hacienda Santa Gertrudis dedicates it’s  effort, research and technology to select  the best beans from the best cultivars in the  province of Loja to assure quality in your cup.

The origin
Loja, located south to the Ecuadorian Andes,  covers vast territories that go from costal  plains to the oriental foothills of the mountain  range. The broad topography of the province   encompasses a wide variety of climatic floors  and ecosystems, in particular the ones located in  the inter-Andean valleys between 1200 to 2100  meters above sea level boast unique conditions  to produce world class coffees.

The process

After we harvested perfectly ripe cherries, we do anaerobic fermentation for 48 hours and then we take them to the drying room. The drying process takes 25-30 days.

FAQ


Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.

When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
