La Papaya

After spending a few years as an apprentice with his neighbour, Juan Peña, producer Abel Salinas turned his planted coffee trees on his own farm into award winning coffees, placing 1st in the 2019 Best of Loja Auction. Abel uses scientific instruments to tell when his cherries are ripe for picking and has learnt the skills to get the fermentation process just right, to produce exceptionally high quality specialty green coffee beans.
