Eco-friendly cultivation.

Mariano Callejas has operated Los Nubarrones since 2010, located 5km west from El Avión. This Java varietal was grown at an altitude of 1590 meters and cultivated in an eco-friendly manner. With shade provided from forest trees and low-intensity, organic fertiliser used. Additionally, the crop is pruned to improve tissue & shade is managed to increase light infiltration.

We were drawn to Mariano’s lot for his refined processing reflecting in this high quality vibrant Java.

The Producer

Finca Los Nubarrones is a small farm operated by Mariano Rafael Montealegre Callejas in the Nueva Segovia region. The farm has 3 permanent employees & an extra 9 seasonal workers in harvest and collection periods of the year. Mariano specialises in cultivating the Java varietal on Los Nubarrones, which is grown on sandy loam soil.

Only fully mature cherries are picked before being floated, packed and delivered to the dry mill. The harvest is then spread on African drying beds, covered by a micro-tunnel & moved regularly by rakes. The coffee is lifted from the patio’s once it reaches a humidity of 11-11.5% and stored for around a month afterwards.

  • Natural

    Ripe cherries are dried whole commonly on patio’s, drying beds or even the bare earth allowing the bean to ferment naturally encased by its fruit.

    The cherries are turned regularly to reduce the risk of defects and ensure even drying.

    Once the cherries resemble raisins and the target parameters are met the coffee is hulled and sorted in the dry mill.
