In 1997 Grimanes Morales Lizana discovered a new variety of coffee on her farm. At first, she did not pay it much attention.
However, in 2011 her farm was decimated with ‘ojo de pollo’ disease and the only plants to survive were these of unknown variety. At that point, she decided to plant her entire farm with this variety in order to survive and have crop to sell.
Years later, she now sees this as a turning point in her farm. If not for her crop be decimated by ‘ojo de pollo’ there is no telling if she would have been able to achieve the success she now has with winning the 2019 Cup of Excellence, outscoring multiple gesha lots from across Peru.
