Breeding new varietals is important as diseases mutate & varietals that were once resistant are no longer. H1 or Centroamericano is a cross of Sarchimor which is highly rust resistant & Rume Sudan, an Ethiopian low yielding/highly sensory varietal. In 2012, Finca Palestina lost 70% of their coffee plantation to rust, so they began to experiment with hybrids & agroforesty (intentional combination of agriculture & forestry) working to produce amazing cup quality whilst increasing biodiversity.
