The plantation was acquired by Omar Calderon in 2014 and produces only foreign varieties, using different means of management than has been done for the varieties of their own plantations so far. . In February 2019, Tsujimoto visited Granito's wet mill operated by Omar and visited a paraiso plantation reaching an altitude of 1,930m.
The plantation covers 8 hectares, where F1 varieties, Villalobos, Tipica, Kenya, Sudanlume, Geisha varieties and so on were cultivated. The soil is sandy loam (sandy loam), the wind is strong and the shade tree is planted with lemons and avocados. While the trees were small, various ideas were used, such as using cascara (peel and pulp of coffee cherry) as organic fertilizer. In addition, the refinery factory owns it and produces only the coffee of its own farm carefully with the family. Coffee cherries are harvested and sorted separately while checking their ripeness, individually refined in a micromill (refining factory), and dried in a well-ventilated African bed for about 15-18 days to finish.
With over 40 years of their career, they were not satisfied with the current state of taste and were attracted to the quest for further exploration, so this award and the successful bid, and Tsujimoto Coffee I am glad to introduce this to everyone.
