Grace Morales' grandfather named his farm Cruz Loma, after the two paths that crossed high on the hill back when no roads connected to the farm. Coffee is not the only thing grown at Cruz Loma. The 350 hectare farm is only 2% coffee. The farm also produces many other fruits and vegetables. Shaded by cedar and plantain trees this blend of Typica, Sidra, Bourbon and Caturra is grown at 1,450 MASL. This coffee is fully washed, dry fermented for 24 hours and dried on covered raised patios for 12-15 days.
This is the third year Loyal has purchased this coffee! Cruz Loma is a special place that is surrounded by virgin jungle. Grace and her family are passionate about producing high quality food and coffee, while respecting the delicate biodiversity of the land and practicing excellent farming practices. These qualities really come through in the cup. It's very smooth with a nice well rounded body, sweetness and complexity. We taste notes of blood orange, red pear and caramel.
