“I am dedicated to coffee growing because of my grandparents, they are the ones who passed on to me the dedication and love for coffee. I have been a coffee producer since 2003, although I have been dedicated to coffee growing for 17 years.
A critical point for me is undoubtedly the winter and the fertilizer hikes. For me the most important stage of the whole process is the harvesting of the coffee cherries, at their optimum point. The most satisfying moments of my work are the achievements you reach the goals you set.” – Luis Guzman

- Varieties: Caturra | Caturra is a natural mutation of the Bourbon variety. It was discovered on a plantation in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil sometime between 1915 and 1918.
Caturra has a single-gene mutation that causes the plant to grow smaller (called dwarfism). Its name derives from the Guarani word meaning “small.” It is also called “Nanico.” After Caturra’s discovery, selections were made by the Instituto Agronomico (IAC) of Sao Paulo State in Campinas, Brazil, starting in 1937. Breeders were interested in Caturra’s small size, which allows plants to be placed closer together, and its closely spaced secondary branches, which enable it to produce more fruit in the same space.
