Ethiosar is what we call a hybrid’s hybrid. It’s a cross between a Rume Sudan with a Sarchimore; whose offspring is then crossed with a Villa Sarchi.
Rume Sudan is a mutation of Typica from Ethiopia. Sarchimore is a cross between a Villa Sarchi (a dwarf mutation of Bourbon that was discovered in Costa Rica) and Timor (a cross between robusta and arabica species). This complex genetic diversity provides Ethiosar with rust resistant properties, higher yield production when compared to a Caturra, and a vibrant cup profile. Find a vibrant sweetness, crisp acidity, green apple, mandarin, and a juicy aftertaste.
Due to its unique properties, we’ve gone and planted Ethiosar at Limoncillo, Los Placeres, El Encanto, Mama Mina, and La Huella. It thrives in the different micro-climates of our farms, so we have high hopes for this varietal.
