The Project 

La Comarca is a family farm established almost 100 years ago  for the production of beef and cow's  milk. The ranch was also used for the  production of co e, sugar cane, citrus  and fruits.  

With the passage of time, it began to  close its operation due to migration  of people from the countryside to  the city. Now, 4th generation family  members started with the specialty  co ee world. 

The farm is located in a Valley  called Malacatos 20 minutes from  downtown Loja. 

Weather ranges from heavy rain to  very dry depending on the season,  becoming a big challenge to keep  coffee beans in optimum condition. 

Despite this circumstances, Daniel  and his family achieve to deliver  sweet, clean and expressive coffees.

The Coffee

It combines the characteristics from  these two varieties. It has acquired  the dense sugars and weight of Red  Bourbon and the acidity of Typica.
