1600 Estate is located in the heart of the Andean Chocó biogeographical region, which runs from Panama through Colombia to Ecuador and finally to the northernmost region up in the Peruvian Andes. In Ecuador the region reaches altitudes up to 5,000 masl, has a very tropical climate with high levels of rainfall. It’s a magical place, one of the most biodiverse areas in the world.
This is quite an atypical production environment for coffee, in between clouds and tropical forest. But the deep soil of a composition enriched by volcanic eruptions, offers great terroir potential for specialty coffee. This is what drew producers like Mateo Patiño and Arnaud Causse to the region. They started experimenting with Bourbon, Pacamara, Caturra and Java varietals over a decade ago.
At 1600 Estate Mateo Patiño grows his coffee in a 7 hectare natural forest under the shade of larger cedars, banana trees and countless other endemic trees. Under this cover, the cherries go through a slow maturation process that takes 9 to 10 months. The tropical, wet climate, high altitude, terroir and slow maturation creates an exceptional cherry density and coffee quality.
This lot is a washed caturra. The cherries are picked by hand in the dry season from June to November. The cherries are depulped, washed and dried on raised african beds at Las Tolas, the farm of neighboring producer Arnaud Causse. Ecuador being fairly new to the specialty coffee scene, we’re thrilled to launch our first coffee from this origin. This lot brings an incredibly distinct lemonade-like acidity and has plenty of juicy fruit.

Roasting & Freshness
We aim to deliver fresh but rested coffee you can dig into right away. That means most coffee we ship is 2-10 days old. If you prefer the hyperfresh stuff, let us know in the order notes box on your cart page. Our coffees taste best 1-6 weeks after roasting but can be enjoyed for up to 3 months or more if vacuum packed and/or freezed.
