The current varieties in the estate are: Pacamara, Pache and Bourbón.

In Lido Manor, for the new area where coffee will be planted, they will not eradicate the original trees, but directly plant new plants under the trees, and use them as permanent shade.

The most distinctive feature of Lido Manor is the use of artificial weed control on the farm, land conservation, and protection of natural resources such as water, animals and plants.
