About the farm
The Pillcocaja Farm is located in the heart of the Ecuadorian Andes, at rest since more than 70 years.
Located at 1650 meters above sea level, the coffee trees grow naturally under the shade of old native trees named Faiques and it feeds on natural springs that are formed in the high parts of the mountain. It is our third season working with the Pillcocaja farm.
