More About
Gallo De La Peña

Lincon Guevara is the first generation of coffee farmer in his family. His grandfather had Typica in the farm as decoration trees and for personal consumption. Lincon started growing coffee back in 2015, planting Topazio and Catucai after being a coffee technician for over 7 years. He is one of the two only coffee farmers in the province of Tungurahua.

The farm sits in a transition zone between the Andes Mountain range and the Ecuadorian Amazon. The climate in the area is subtropical with average temperatures of 21oC. The farm consists of 80 Ha of primary and secondary forest out of which only 2 Ha are of coffee. The farm is considered one of the few in the area where Flora and Fauna are preserved. Fauna is very important in this farm as you have a unique bird called “Gallo de la Peña”(Lincon’s roasted coffee brand), Jaguar, Tapir, Spectacle Bear, Puma, Monkeys, Ant Bear, and many others.

The area is surrounded by high peaks; one of them Tungurahua volcano which is constantly in eruption phase. Humidity and rainfall is really high as it’s an area where most of the water from the surrounding rainforest and mountains end in rivers that complete the Amazon river which runs through Peru, Colombia, and Brazil.
