He also grows other varieties such as Lempira , IHCAFE90 and Parainema. These varieties are known to resist pests and diseases, and give a high yield. Osman was one of the first to embark on the cultivation of specialty coffee through the production of micro-batches. Now certified organic, Osman has helped to widely disseminate this quality-oriented vision throughout the region. To virtually everyone's benefit, he philosophy has encouraged regional producers to elevate their coffee cultivation towards that of grands crus.
