Ecuador Finca Del Pisque

Ecuador Finca Del Pisque
Finca Terrazas del Pisque is a 38-hectare farm of which 15 hectares is planted in coffee, the other available land is used for growing avocados and citrus fruits.
In this area of Ecuador, harvest happens nearly year-round and only the ripest cherries are selected for processing. Once picked, cherries are processed as Washed or Naturals, and sometimes fermented Anaerobically first.
For anaerobic lots, cherries are placed in a sealed environment and anaerobically fermented under controlled conditions before being placed on raised beds and finished using the natural drying process for an average of 28-40 days.
For natural lots, cherries are sorted and placed directly on raised beds and dried for an average of 28-40 days.
Selective harvesting Ecuador is difficult. Due to the country’s location on the Equator, the coffee needs to be harvested throughout the year. A branch will often contain all Ecuador Finca Terrazas Del Pisquestages of the coffee’s developmental cycle in one: green coffee, ripe coffee, and blossoms side by side. This forces a farmer to hold some coffee, while processing and harvesting enough for export, and it also leads to higher labor costs due to the extended picking cycle.
