Finca Miraflor is one of five farms owned by Luis Emilio Valladárez. When Luis first began coffee farming, access was particularly difficult and goods coming to and from the farm were transported by horseback. His vision looks to create economic, social and environmental benefits for his farm that the local community can share in.
Miraflor is Luis’s area to sow and experiment with the variety of marsellesa. The intention here was to diversify the quality of his coffee by experimenting with this variety, and Project Origin are proud to supply the results of this work. The marsellesa variety is a genetic cross of a timor hybrid and villa sarchi CIFC and was genetically introduced for its resistance to leaf rust. It is typically a shorter plant when fully grown but produces a high yield with good quality at moderate to high altitudes.
