Whole Bean, Ecuadorian Coffee - Milton Rivadeneira's Plantation - Natural Processed
Arturo first met Milton at a coffee conference in Ibarra, Ecuador, the fall of 2017. At the meeting, Milton told Arturo about his plantation and invited him to visit. A month later, Arturo and his family took a 15 hour bus ride to explore Milton’s farm in Imbabura. Fast forward five months, and Shane is in Ecuador. Arturo tells him all about Milton’s incredible plantation. The two waste no time and leave from Arturo’s home in Zaruma the very next day. After one sip of Milton’s coffee, Arturo and Shane knew it was meant to be. The first 5,000lbs of coffee from Milton’s farm arrived in The States in early August of 2018. Milton’s plantation is just over 7,000ft above sea level. His high altitude grown coffee, diverse plantation, and ample shade produces one of the best cups of coffee in the entire country. Milton’s attention to detail is evident through every step of his supply chain. He pays his coffee cherry pickers by the amount they pick, incentivizing productivity and rewarding hard work. His ethics and high quality plantation makes the perfect partner and the perfect cup of coffee.
