This special Geisha is truly outstanding. It has a wonderful character and is reminiscent of a beautiful bouquet of white flowers. It also has a delightful sweetness similar to honeydew melon, lemongrass and juicy peach flavours that linger after each sip. The coffee is very clean, reflecting the amazing terroir in which it is cultivated.

About this coffee

Direct trade for 4 years: On our Panama trip in March 2020, we visited the direct neighbour of the world-famous Lamastus Elida Estate for the first time: the picturesque Finca Lérida. The farm and its coffee plantations also benefit from the unique microclimate around the Boquete region. Here, coffee plants grow under the best conditions in all of Panama. The Geisha coffee cherries are harvested by hand only when they are dark red and at their sweetest point of ripeness. It can happen that a bush is harvested up to 8 times. The cherries are then depulped, washed and slowly air-dried in the open air with constant turning. In this coffee, you can taste the fantastic terroir that makes this coffee so unique worldwide.

ORIGIN INFO

About the Farm

The Finca Lérida was the first coffee plantation in Panama, which was founded in 1925 by a German and was the first farm in Panama to export coffee to Germany. We are very fortunate to have this direct relationship with the Amoruso family farm. Maria Amuroso grew up in Boquete as the eldest of 5 siblings and grew coffee plants with her grandpa when she was still a girl and helped him with the processing. She always dreamed of her own farm and when Finca Lerida came up for sale in 2009 she breathed life into this special place with one of the best locations for coffee growing. She planted Geisha plants and 5 years ago even the SL 34 variety from Kenya and won fourth place at the BOP.
