Blind Tiger Coffee (Philadelphia, PA) - Ecuador La Joya Finca Angamaza - magnolia, jasmine, cherrywine, .
After @threecupsaday told me about @blindtigercoffee , I've decided to take a short coffee crawl to #Philadelphia after a long hiatus from visiting. Unfortunately they didn't have a retail location so visited @heyrally for my 1st coffee on the crawl. It's good to explore again.
PS it's rare that I see a shop use the clever dropper. .
Finca Angamaza is located in Conganama, Loja, Ecuador and run by Angel Capa Carrion. The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 2,080 m.a.s.l. and consists of 19 hectares in total, 2 currently in coffee with plans to plant another 2 hectares. Of those 2 hectares currently in production, 25% are planted with Caturra, 10% Typica, 40% in San Salvador and 25% in Yellow Catimore. Upon arriving at the wet-mill, the coffee is fermented for 36 hours and after washing, the coffee is dried from anywhere between 8-10 days, depending on the weather conditions. Around that time, a local association of growers was formed to help market and find buyers for their coffees; they even brought in agronomists and technical assistance as offered by the local municipality. This was a huge factor in motivating Angel to produce higher quality coffees. He succeeded and is now receiving higher prices for his lots. for buyers who value and appreciate his efforts.
