Origin: La Fuente, Nicaragua
producer: Leana Maria Lovo

Leana Lovo is a female farmer who inherited her farm from her father and is a third-generation coffee grower. Her farm, La Fuente is a 24-hectare farm in the Dipilto area of Nueva Segovia and is planted entirely with catimor. Leana planted catimor in response to years of crop failures due to coffee leaf rust, since catimor is known for its quality cherry and is currently resistant to leaf rust, as well as proving to be highly productive when fertilised correctly.

Through selective picking of very ripe cherries (purple colour) and longer than usual fermentation time (24 hours instead of usual 16 hours), Leana is working to maximise the quality of her coffee, which she believes is the only alternative to the low market price of coffee.
