Producer Story:

San Cayetano was acquired by Rafael Sr. in 1986 from a local family that had completely abandoned the land. It was in bad shape. Rafael began re planting the farm completely over the years as some of the trees had died out due to the lack of attention and fertilizer. The farm has a 50% shade covering which helps protect the trees from the sun and helps the cherries mature slowly, allowing the intrinsic properties to develop nicely. The property has a house for a foreman and a small house where Rafael Sr. wishes to some day retire. Most of the land is flat and has been renewed with Red Caturra, SL-34, Ethiosar, and Orange Bourbon. We are very happy with the results of the Red Caturra both agronomically and in the cup and plan on expanding this variety a little more. Our Red Bourbon trees will soon need re planting, so we will be starting this project in 2021. The farm is located just 500 meters away from La Fany Estate. This farm, although small has a very good productivity and quality.
