It is with pleasure that we are working again with Cafetelera Buenos Aires - from Nicragua !
We find notes of pineapple, honey and apple, to make a complex, sweet, fruity and very funky espresso
Cafetelera Buenos Aires is a 215 hectare family business, created over 55 years ago by Luis Emilio Valladarez. The farm produces coffees of the Caturra, Catuaï, Maragogype, Maracaturra and Villa Sarchi varieties, in honey, plain and washed process. Located in the municipality of Buenos Aires, in the Dipilto mountains, the company is located in a specialty coffee production area, near the border with Honduras. The farm enjoys a microclimate, which favors the production of these specialty coffees.
The coffees are planted on sandy soil, at an altitude of between 1,200 and 1,700 meters above sea level, and the coffee trees are produced under shade (70% with various essences), with soil fertilization and plants respecting the environment. . The producers carry out full disease control and constant monitoring of the production stages. Their main objective is to carry out substantive work in terms of quality, in order to develop relationships of trust with their customers.
Luis Emilio Valladarez has been working in the world of coffee for 60 years and started his activity by buying a small farm called Buenos Aires then two other farms, La Laguna and El Suyatal. All its production was then sold in cherries. A few years ago, the producer decided to build his own processing plant - Cafetalera Buenos Aires - with the aim of controlling the production and export of his coffees.
Today, he works with his son Olman, on two plantations: Buenos Aires Estate and La Laguna. A family collaboration that began in 2004, when Olman began to support his father and brother in the management and administration of the family farms. Since 2005, the goal of these passionate producers has been to develop in the world of specialty coffee; They have also participated several times in the Nicaraguan Cup of Excellence. In 2014, they climbed to second place on the podium for their lot of Maracaturra El Naranjo Dipilto!
