Los Bucaros is a blend of washed Catuai and Caturra coming from 3 different farms in Nueva Segovia: Agua Sarca, Las Hortensias and Los Pirineos respectively owned by Isacio Albir, Ana M. Albir and Eudoro Guillen.
Isacio Javier Albir is the owner of the 87 hectare farm, Agua Sarca in the Dipilto area of Nueva Segovia. 20 hectares of the farm is a nature reserve which is wild forest with a river running through it. The other 60 or so hectares are planted with a whole host of varieties.
Las Hortensias is located in the heart of the Dipilto area, one of the best-known coffee regions of Nicaragua with its own micro climate that is very favourable to high-end coffee production. The harmony of the soil, the water, the fauna and flora of Dipilto provide the authentic character to the coffee produced at Las Hortensias. Its owners pay particular attention to environment conservation and sustainable practices application, while delivering the highest quality possible. They grow Maracaturra, Marselleza and Catuai below shade provided by Bucaro, citrus trees like lemon and orange and Guava.
In 2020 Las Hortensias has achieved the 6th place in the renowned Cup of Excellence competition of Nicaragua.
Eudoro Guillen Jarquin inherited the farm Los Pirineos, which is a 70 hectare estate, from his father, who bought it in 1965. He created a wet mill at his farm, and experiments with longer fermentation times and natural and honey processing to improve the quality of his coffee. The lot was made and processed in Ocotal at Cafetos de Segovia. It was called after a native tree from central America: Búcaro (purple coral tree), tall tree from the legume family that attracts hummingbirds, which pollinate its flowers.
