Rust-resistant coffee hybrid scores in Nicaragua

Thursday, May 25, 2017


A new leaf-rust-resistant hybrid called Centroamericano scored 90.5 in the recent 2017 Nicaragua Cup of Excellence, marking a major win for the development of hybrid types called F1 in coffee.

The coffee won a CoE Presidential Award and took second place in the national coffee quality competition, organized by the Alliance for Coffee Excellence. This marks the first time an F1 hybrid has placed in a Cup of Excellence competition, and World Coffee Research CEO Tim Schilling characterized its success at the highly respected national quality competition as a “huge leap into the future” for coffee.
