Hacienda La Gerencia is located in the northern province of Carchi, Ecuador and run by Mario Andrade. The farm sits at a range of high elevations from between 1,900 to 2,400
meters and consists of 3 hectares in total. Upon arrival to the wet-mill, the cherries are depulped and fermented for 16 hours and then dried in parabolic dryers for 20-25 days. Mario
is the leader of a small 10-person group called Habitat Coffee that helps farmers in the area. Not only does Mario have a central location where the farmers can come and sell their coffee, but he offers pre-harvest financing for fertilization and even assists with finishing the drying of the coffees for the farmers (who are often so strapped for cash, they can’t wait to finish drying
before needing to sell). Mario is transparent in his business practices so farmers know what the final price was, and what he deducted for his services. This coffee is delicate and elegant on the cupping table, with bright acidity evoking crisp fruit notes, coupled with refined sweetness.
