About the coffee

The Excelencia Varietal is a crossbreed between Caturra and Ethiopian landrace. It has very good cup quality at elevations above 1300 meters and is well-adapted to agroforestry conditions.

F1 Hybrid varieties are created by crossing genetically distinct parents (for example, a wild Ethiopian variety x Caturra). The offspring of the cross are first-generation (F1) hybrids. F1 Hybrids are notable because they tend to:

  1. Have significantly higher production than non-hybrids.
  2. Maintain high cup quality ideal for the specialty coffee market.
  3. Are disease resistant (need significantly less agrochemicals)

F-1 hybrids are the hope for a sustainable future in the coffee industry!
