Ivania Calderón’s farm is located in Wiwili de Jinotega. Ivania is part of the coop La Providencia. Her beautiful and remote farm, named Finca Alborada(1250 masl), is approximately 30 manzanas (51 acres) and located on Kilambé Mountain, which provides the perfect weather to grow high-quality coffee. El Alboroto means “the fuss.” The origin of the name is unknown, but as the story goes, it was given to the farm because of all of the commotion from a variety of farm animals and the family gatherings. When locals are asked of the whereabouts of her farm, people respond, “Just follow the noise, ‘the fuss’ is that way!”
