Cafetalera Buenos Aires is a family business covering some 215 hectares, founded more than 55 years ago by Luis Emilio Valladarez. The farm produces honey, natural and fully-washed Caturra, Maracaturra, Marseillaise and Villa Sarchi coffees. The plantation is situated in the commune of Buenos Aires, in the Dipilto mountains, in an area near the Honduras border known for its specialty coffee. The farm benefits from a micro-climate that is ideal for growing specialty coffee.
The coffees are planted in sandy soil at an altitude of between 1,200 and 1,700 meters. Most of the coffee is grown under shade (70% with various species), and the soil and plants are fertilized using environmentally-friendly techniques. The producers practice comprehensive disease control and constantly monitor the different stages of production. Their main aim is to carry out the necessary groundwork to improve quality, in order to build relationships with their customers built on trust.
