Galo and Maria Alexandra, the exporters of this microlot, manage their own Finca Cruz Loma, a 350-hectare plot in the community of San José de Minas, a small town in the northwestern part of Pichincha, a short trip north of Quito. The estate has been in Galo’s family going back 80 years. Galo’s experience in coffee began 20 years ago working alongside his mother on the farm; he would go on to work professionally in the coffee sector, for exporters and as a project manager, before returning to full-time farming. In Galo’s words, “cultivating my coffee is an activity that allows me to apply and develop the skills and habits I’ve learned over the years; it’s also an essential resource for my family, since my wife, my daughters, and myself are all involved with the production and marketing of our coffee. Everybody in the family has a critical role in the coffee’s success.” Galo’s experience in the value chain has positioned his family well to help create opportunities for other farms by representing their coffees, first to exporters and, more recently with an export license of their own.



"Palm Trees and Housetops, Ecuador" Frederic Edwin Church

Frederic Edwin Church, a prominent figure of the Hudson River School, was renowned for his masterful landscapes that often showcased the beauty of nature with meticulous detail and vibrant colors. "Palm Trees and Housetops, Ecuador" is one such masterpiece, capturing the essence of Ecuador's tropical landscape with its lush palm trees swaying against the backdrop of quaint rooftops. Painted during Church's travels to South America in the mid-19th century, the work radiates a sense of tranquility and exoticism, inviting viewers into a world of lush greenery and picturesque architecture. Through his skillful brushwork and keen observation, Church transports us to a serene oasis, where the harmony between man and nature is beautifully depicted.
