THE STORY BEHIND
The municipality of San Fernando is located around 24 kilometers from the region’s capital ‘Ocotal’ and of the 10,000 residents, the vast majority are coffee farmers. This beautiful area is home to the stunning ‘Finca La Argentina’ which has been owned and managed by Julio Peralta since 1991. The farm lies on the mountainous slopes in the Nuevo Segovia region on the border of Honduras, providing spectacular views of the surrounding forests and mountains of Jicaro and San Fernando. La Argentina produces coffee at altitudes of between 1250 to 1500 meters above sea level and has an annual rainfall of approximately 1800 millimeters. These factors, along with Julio’s inherited passion and dedication for growing exceptional coffee, combine to produce lively, bright and complex flavor nuances in the cup.Of the 140 hectares that make up La Argentina, only 30 of them are allocated for coffee production. The rest of the land has been set aside for the growth of different varieties of pine and oak, and it is this factor along with a clear commitment to sustainable environmental practice that has resulted in Rainforest Alliance certification for La Argentina. The farm produces coffee from caturra, catuai, java and villa sarchi varietals and Julio is proud to present us with this micro lot (World exclusive to us!)) which we really feel showcases the very best Finca La Anrgentina has to offer.
