Hacienda La Papaya is the farm and estate owned and operated by Juan Peña, who is perhaps Ecuador's most famous emerging specialty coffee farmer. Juan is a multigeneration farmer, but he's relatively new to coffee: A former long-stem rose producer, he started experimenting with coffee plants in about 2010. Turning his energy entirely to coffee, he has worked to develop as healthy, hardy, and horticulturally intent- ional a farm as possible.  -Cafe Imports

Finca La Papaya consistently delivers one of the most memorable cups of coffee out there. It’s the rare fully washed bean that exhibits a spectrum of fruit ranging from tart to sweet and back again, featuring a balancing act between raspberry, lime, and cola acidity and honey, cherry, and browned sugar sweetness. It’s the perfect bean to give someone to prove how good a cup of coffee can be, and that’s why we’ve saved it to feature this holiday season. So brew a batch, kick up your slippered feet, and enjoy some of the best coffee you will have to usher in the new year. -Boomtown
