Coffee Ecosystem Recovery, Damaged by Cyclone Yaku 2022-45

Update March 6, 2024

03 Kg. of coffee seeds of the Marseillaise, Bourbon and Costa Rica varieties have been delivered from the demonstration plot of the Villarrumi Producers Committee, this plot has organic certification within the CECANOR-PROASSA Special Coffee Program. These varieties, depending largely on harvest and post-harvest management, have high cup quality.

In the Villarrumi demonstration plot, good productive performance of these varieties has been demonstrated, which is why they are being disseminated in committees with similar environmental characteristics.

7,500 thousand coffee plants are being prepared, we are close to bagging them and will be taken to the final field in 5 or 6 months.

The delivery of irrigation material is being scheduled for the month of May, before the installation of the seedlings, which will be done in the month of June-July.
