Coffee from La Florida is always clean, and unique. Fabricio has a way of processing that brings out new flavours in coffees. This Sidra is no exception.


Fabricio studied coffee at the Università del Caffè in Triesta, and applied his knowledge directly to the processing of his coffees.

Ramiro gained experience of agronomy through a multitude of farms in the north of Ecuador, particularly Nestle run estates.

Together, they've formed a powerhouse of coffee production in Sozoranga, close to the Peruvian borrder - where they consistently place very high in coffee competitions, both in Ecuador, and internationally.


The growing region of the farm sits around 1500m above sea level, surrounded and encompassed by dense jungle and reforestation projects.

Fabricio grows Catucai, Sidra, and Typica Mejorado at his farm - which is located about 1km, and 500m in elevation from his house, and processing centre. They transport the cherry by donkey most of the time.

This lot is from Fabricio's Sidra trees, which are absolutely thriving in the natural jungle in Sozoranga. He picks really rich, ripe cherries, and washes and sorts in the tubs as seen in the picture below. They're then put straight into stainless steel tanks for fermentation with added local yeasts sprinkled on top. The cherries are macerated in this environment for just over 3 days until they're softened and a great level of ferment. 


Fabricio has built a custom dark dry room to make the drying process as controlled as possible. This lot was slow dried in this room which makes such a clean profile to this otherwise fermented lot. There's tons of complexity and layers to this Natural Sidra that you're going to love. It's where the terroir of La Florida, meets the processing skills of Fabricio.
