Farm: Finca El Paraiso
Varietal: Caturra Catuaí
Altitude: 1,200 – 1,300 metres above sea level
Owner: Roberto Bendaña McEwan
Finca El Paraiso lies at an altitude of around 1,200-1,300 metres above sea level in the Matagalpa department of central Nicaragua. It is owned and managed by Roberto Bendaña McEwan and his family, who have been growing coffee in the area since the late 1960s. Roberto’s grandparents emigrated to Nicaragua from Scotland – hence the McEwan part of his surname! The Bendañas now run several farms in this mountainous region of Nicaragua, including Finca El Paraiso.
Several years ago the farm was devastated by the ojo de gallo (or ‘chicken’s eye’) coffee rust disease, which wiped out much of the Catimor varietal that used to cover over 90% of the farm. The Bendañas have since replanted almost the entire farm, which is now made up of a mix of Maracatu, Bourbon, Catuai and the more resistant Caturra (10%).
This particular lot is made up of Caturra and Catuai varietals processed using the natural method. The cherries are handpicked when ripe and then dried in the sun on patios at the Bendañas’ wet mill.
The farm borders the Cerro Frio national park, which is part of the protected bio-corridor set aside for the quetzal, Guatemala’s brightly coloured and increasingly rare national bird. The farm and adjoining park provide habitat for a massive variety of birds, animals and insects.
