WHAT IS CATIOPE?
Catiope is a hybrid between two very complementary varieties Castillo & Ethiope. It was developed by CENICAFE (Coffee Research Center from FNC in Colombia) in the early 2000s. Laderas del Tapias was one of the few farms selected in Colombia to experiment, plant and expand this amazing hybrid coffee profile as part of Caldas Specialty Coffee Portfolio.
