The El Filtro finca is located within the community of Las Nubes (the clouds), in Nueva Segovia. The mountain microclimate, as the name suggests, is ideal for the cultivation of high quality coffee. Wilmer Figueroa bought the land 15 years ago and, since then, every member of the family has actively participated in the production of quality coffee. During the harvest period, 30 workers are employed to select the cherries from the Maracaturra plants. This variety is capable of fine productions, with a long and voluminous grain with acidulous and pleasantly bitter notes. The manufacturing process involves a 36-hour fermentation in the tank, following which the coffee is dried on African beds.
