About the farm:
Coffee producer Olman Valladarez and his team support many social projects in their local community. On the serious side they have developed public health campaigns focused on issues most relevant to the community such as dental care, breast cancer, and diabetes. Moreover, they also organize recreational activities and celebrations for important holidays.
This Yellow Catuai hails from Finca Buenos Aires, which placed 1st in the Cup of Excellence in 2015, and is a great example of the diversity of varieties that exist here. Due to its susceptibility to leaf rust it is very rare to find Yellow Catuai in Nicaragua, making this a unique pairing of variety and terroir.
