More Information

Leana Lovo inherited her farm from her father and is a third generation coffee grower. La Fuente is a 24 hectare farm in the Dipilto area of Nueva Segovia and is planted entirely with catimor. Leana planted catimor in response to years of crop failures due to coffee leaf rust, since catimor is currently resistant to leaf rust and is highly productive when fertilised highly.

Through selective picking of very ripe cherries (purple color) and longer than usual fermentation time (24 instead of usual 16) Leana is working to maximise the quality of her coffee, which she believes is the only alternative to the low market price of coffee.
