The manual labor is another key element for the cultivation of coffee. Its name derives from the Guarani word meaning “small.

Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, a And even so, he adds, it is difficult to know whether the premiums would outweigh the risks faced by producers due to pests and diseases. The Coffee Drying Process is The general tendency in the Colombian Coffee Region is the presence of two intercalated dry and rainy seasons throughout the year, permitting the regular blossoming and harvest of fresh coffee. As can be observed, Colombian Coffee is cultivated along the three different mountain ranges of the Andes as well as in the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, which sprawl across the country from its Atlantic coast in the North to the border between Colombian and Ecuador in the South.

We ask for this information primarily because we naturally want to know about the producer and the coffee, avriedad also in hopes that the quality can be repeated year after year.

Arabica Coffee Varieties | Caturra

Catura, Central, and Western soils of igneous, metamorphic, sedimentary and volcanic origin are found. The geographical location of Colombia submits it to the influences of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the Amazon, the presence of inter-Andean valleys and the topography allows the presence of different tropical microclimates that offer particular conditions. It is worth reminding that multiple factors are at varuedad in coffee growing, and the variety itself is only a factor for high-quality coffee production.

The process of industrialization should ideally be performed vaariedad after the harvest. The Colombian Coffee regions suited for producing high quality coffee consists of nearly 3.

When the arrival of coffee rust Hemileia vastatrix threatened coffee growing in the Americas the need to develop new varieties resistant to this disease became a priority in many countries.


Its genetic composition is very similar to that of Caturra, allowing for the particular notes and cup profile that connoisseurs have come to expect from different Colombian coffee regions. Coffee agriculture, on the road Control measures based on the use of fungicides are expensive, not vaiedad effective and sometimes harmful to the environment, thus affecting profitability. It also has distinctive quality features, such as higher bean density and size.

For more information on the history of the Catimor group, see T There are only a few ways to find out, and Andrew pulled his fedora out of storage, donned a trench coat, and immediately went to work on the clues at hand, committed to solving this mystery. Because of their latitude, only in Eastern Africa Kenya, Tanzania, and Ethiopiaand in Colombia do high quality coffee crops grow at altitudes of nearly 2, meters vwriedad sea level.

The release of composed varieties varieties with a seed mix consisting of several parents with different sources of resistance was made aiming for durable resistance, considering that coffee is a semi permanent crop and that in the Colombian coffee regions cultivation is often continuous. Various lines of the coffee-leaf-rust-resistant Timor Hybrid were crossed with Caturra to produce a dwarf plant with rust resistance.

The proximity to the equator line 0 degrees latitude generates a solar exposure that influences the median temperatures registered in the Colombian mountain chains. In addition, several efforts are made in its cultivation, harvest and post harvest.

No difference in quality, but in resistance to diseases The study concludes that while both varieties produce high-quality coffee, the Castillo variety is more productive and resistant to diseases. So more like 22andMe or 44andMe, as Robusta coffee has 22 chromosomes and Arabica This was just one of our many working visits per year, during which we visit with farmers, cup coffee, talk about how the crop is coming, and get a sense what we can expect from the harvest—what to look forward to or be afraid of.

Cafe Imports Europe International. Contact us at ColCoffeeInsights. Jaime Castillo, then head of the program. At these altitudes in the tropics, moderate temperatures are present year long, without extreme variations.

Catuai A compact plant with high yielding potential of standard quality in Central America. These specific conditions permit the existence of microclimates and favorable conditions for the cultivation of coffee at high altitudes. It is worth reminding that the Coffea arabica species has 44 chromosomes, whereas the diploid Coffea canephora specie only has 22; in the former the genetic variability is reduced, and so is its ability to combat pests and diseases.


The Castillo Variety and its regional compounds are also a demonstration that it is possible to reconcile production costs with an environmentally friendly agriculture.

Jairo explained that the producer had been growing coffee for a while, but that he was new to working with Banexport as a partner—this was new to Jairo, as well. The new leaves are a bronze color, with opposing branches on the trunk and cherries that are clumped together in groups or nodes—as opposed to the Colombia variety, which typically has one constant group of fruit clustered along the branch. Under these temperatures it is possible to cultivate coffee and avoid frosts.

That last one is just a little Clue humor. These qualities can be obtained as long as the proper species and botanic varieties are grown in specific environments, characterized by high mountainous ccaturra regions with a specific type of soil and climate. Contact us at ColCoffeeInsights.

A compact plant with high yielding potential of standard quality in Central America. It is noteworthy to comment that the common characteristics of the soils that favor the cultivation caturga coffee is that they have relatively low ph levels and are good retainers of humidity.

The selection process for Caturra was called mass selectionmeaning that a group of individuals are selected based on their superior performance, seed from these plants is bulked to form a new generation, and then the cade is repeated. A compact plant with good yielding potential of standard quality in Central America.

Variety: Unknown

Examples of Catimor varieties include: Product and Innovation Tweet. Women and Family, Central Thread Colombia shows major progress in tests of assisted coffee harvesting December 19 We were at about 2, meters altitude, standing in the middle of 6 hectares of coffee. It was originally created by crossing Caturra a dwarf Bourbon mutation and Timor Hybrid a spontaneous cross-breeding of an Arabica and a Canephora or Robusta plant that occurred in Timor in the late s or early s.
