Panama - Elida - Natural - 12oz - 20.00
Grown by Wilford and Thatcher Lamastus on their Elida Estate in the Boquete region at 1,670 - 1,870 meters, this full natural coffee is a perfect example of why coffees from Panama are amazing!
The Lamastus Family has being producing coffee in Elida Estate for four generations since 1918. Elida Estate coffees are produced under a unique world-ecological condition: it is shade-grown, bird friendly, the farm is located at a very high elevation, in a micro climate with very low temperatures, the coffee trees are surrounded by the Volcan Baru National Park -a virgin native cloudy rain forest-.
At the turn of the century Kentucky born Robert Lamastus started an Arabica coffee plantation in a farm located at around 5,600 ft (1 700 m) above sea level in the skirts of the Baru Volcano in Boquete, Panama. At the time our grandfather processed and exported what is still today considered as one of the highest quality coffees in the world. Now a days and three generations later the tradition continues, the Lamastus family, still produces, processes, exports, and now roast its own rare estate coffees.
