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 100% Caturra, honey-processed microlot. It is a very bright coffee with floral notes and a lively, juicy acidity against notes of wine, cherries, mandarin, grapes and citrus fruits. It has a smooth body and a pleasant length in the cup.

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

EL SUYATAL

El Suyatal is situated at an altitude of more than 1,500 metres, making it Cafetalera Buenos Aires’ highest farm. Cafetalera Buenos Aires is a family business that covers about 215 hectares, founded over 55 years ago by Luis Emilio Valladarez. The farm produces honey, natural and fully-washed Caturra, Maracaturra and Villa Sarchi coffees. The plantation is situated in the commune of Buenos Aires, in the Dipilto mountains, in an area near the Honduras border known for its specialty coffee. The farm benefits from a micro-climate that is ideal for growing specialty coffee.

The coffees are planted in sandy soil at an altitude of between 1,200 and 1,700 metres. Most of the coffee is grown under shade (70% with various species), and the soil and plants are fertilised using environmentally-friendly techniques. The producers practice comprehensive disease control and constantly monitor the different stages of production. Their main aim is to carry out the necessary groundwork to improve quality, in order to build relationships with their customers built on trust.

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!
