A beautifully clean and sweet natural, this Ethiosar variety is a hybrid of a hybrid. First a Sudan Rume and Sarchimor (which itself is a hybrid of Timor and Villa Sarchi) are crossed, after which its offspring are crossed again with Villa Sarchi. The resulting variety, Ethiosar, has coffee leaf rust resistance and offers a high yield comparable to Caturra.
The Mierisch family first started producing coffee in Nicaragua since 1908 and have been involved as head judges in the Cup of Excellence in Honduras since 2011. It was in 2014 that "Lalita", before it was renamed as "La Alita", was purchased by the family. La Alita means "little wing" (the Mierisch family are fans of Jimi Hendrix) and is closely situated to the other two farms owned by the family: Cerro Azul and Santa Lucia. The wet mill is located on Santa Lucia with the cupping lab, warehouse and drying patios on Cerro Azul. This is our first year working with the Mierisch family and we're excited to share their beautiful hard work with you!
