Rolando Cordoba Ramos, his wife Louise Mirian and their children all live on the farm named Mirolindo in La Vega, Tarqui. The farm is tiny, only two hectares in size and was founded in 2011. Small in size but huge in the cup :)
On the farm cherry is collected every 4 weeks, daily pickings are left in Tulas then pulped and fermented for 36 hours, washed 4 times and drained for 12 hours. A Tula is a bag made from fibres. This style of processing is common when managing a farm without many hired hands. The result is wonderful, creamy, pulpy and sweet with winey acidity. This is the second year we have bought coffee from Rolando and we discovered his coffees through the Tarqui cup hosted by Nordic Approach and Fairfield Trading in 2018 where his lot came second in the competition. This year his harvest was early and this lot of 700 kilos was not put forward for competition. Our purpose for initially travelling to Tarqui was to meet with producers like Rolando and our hopes are, we can commit to purchase good volumes of coffee from his farm every year.
