ABOUT

This coffee is produced in the heart of the Dipilto mountains, near the border with Honduras. It is cultivated on sandy soil at an altitude of between 1,200 and 1,700 metres. Most coffee bushes are grown under shade (70% with various species), and the soil and plants are fertilised using environmentally-friendly techniques.

This is a fully-washed coffee. Thecherries are harvested at the highest part of the farm and wet processed. They use a relatively conventional process, as the cherries are de-pulped, fermented, washed then dried on a patio.

We have been very impressed with the quality of these coffees and hope to establish a long-term working relationship with these producers.

BUENOS AIRES

Located at an altitude of 1,740 metres, the Ramirez family’s Buenos Aires finca looks like it has been taken straight out of a painting in a thousand shades of green. On a sunny day, you can see the snow-covered peaks of the Nevado del Ruiz from Don Luis’ small organic vegetable garden. The plantations themselves are quite steep,andbordered by banana trees. You will sometimes see small green toucans that have come to visit.
Luis Eduardo and his son Barner pulled up most of the Yellow Colombia to replant with Orange Castillo bushes. Barner, who has inherited his father’s strength of character, has successfully proved to him that combining processes, experience and testing is a great way of producing high-quality specialty coffee at their small Salento farm.

The history of the producer

The story
of the producer

Luis Emilio Valladarez has been working in the coffee industry for 60 years. He started out by buying a small farm called Buenos Aires, followed by two other farms named La Laguna and El Suyatal. At the time he sold all his production as cherries. A few years ago, the producer decided to build his own mill, Cafetalera Buenos Aires, in order to more effectively control coffee production and export.
Today he works with his son Olman at two plantations: Buenos Aires Estate and La Laguna. This family set-up began in 2004, when Olman started to help his father and brother manage and run the family’s farms. Since 2005, these enthusiastic producers have been working hard to make a name for themselves in the world of specialty coffee. They have even participated on several occasions in Nicaragua’s Cup of Excellence competition. And in 2014 they came second with their El Naranjo Dipilto (Maracaturra) lot!
