More About this Coffee :
This Don Olman coffee is a blend of Arabica Caturra coffees with a mixture of two different processes : Washed and Natural
Lionel and Marco from Cafés Lugat went to meet the Valladarez family in Nicaragua (from left to right: Marco, Lionel, Luis Emilio, Olman). On the menu: sampling coffee, visiting the farm and the processing plant!
Initially, all his crops were sold as cherries until the construction, a few years ago, of his own processing plant: Cafetalera Buenos Aires. The goal was to best control the production and export of his coffees.
In 2004, Luis Emilio's second son, Olman, joined his father and brother to manage and run the family farms.
In 2005 he began to introduce his micro lot coffees to the Nicaragua Cup of Excellence competition, obtaining very good results.
