About Nicaragua Santa Luz

Origin: Matagalpa, Nicaragua

Santa Luz Farm is located 4 kilometres North-East of El Tuma in the Department of Matagalpa.

The farm covers 158 hectares, of which 85 are currently dedicated to coffee. In total 105 hectares are suitable for coffee, while the rest are mainly beautiful woodlands and administrative areas.

Grown on the west facing slopes in volcanic soil at the top of the collection

of farms within the estate, the cherries are picked by hand as very ripe, before drying at a consistent low temperature to create the fruity characteristics.

The H3 varietal was planted here in 2015, and is a cross between Caturra and an Ethiopian landrace accession specifically suited for growing above 1300masl. Produced as part of the first wave of F1 hybrid varieties, H3 does still have some susceptibility to rust but has maintained presence in the fields due to its exceptional cup quality.
