The coffee story

Hacienda Santa Gertrudis works closely with more than 100 producers in the province of Loja who we consult and from whom we buy parchment coffee. With this coffee we make our Loja Blend AA. The varieties that predominate in this blend are Typica, Caturra and Bourbon.

Our Coffee
Despite having an extensive tradition of  coffee cultivation, Loja has not achieved  considerable levels of technology, due to our  coffee coming from small producers.
 
There are about 11,000 hectares of crops  planted in the hands of at least 5,000  families who carry out this activity balancing  agroforestry systems where they grow their  coffee in environmental friendly ways.
 
Coffee has a large social component due  to the amount of labor involved in the  production process; the harvesting of the  cherries is done by hand to guarantee the  quality, the processing and drying stages are 
done in an artisan way obtaining unique cup  profiles.
 
Hacienda Santa Gertrudis, has a fully  equipped dry mill that provides an added  value to the farmer’s product ensuring  that they are able to reach national and  international markets and doing our part in  reducing the levels of poverty in the region.


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.

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.
