History & Family Tradition

As tradition goes, coffee and the Lamastus family are one and the same ever Since 1918 when Robert Lamastus planted the first coffee tree at the now famed Elida Estate Coffee plantation.

Almost a century has gone by and now 3 generations of the Lamastus family are still working the farm, Thatcher, the grandfather, Wilford, the son and Wilford Jr. 

Elida Estate located in Alto Quiel Boquete Panama, between 1,700m/5,600 – 1,875/6,150ft and has won top awards consistently in the SCAP BOP competitions in all of the different categories, Natural Process, Traditional Washed, and in both Geisha Natural and Geisha Washed category. Also, in 2015, Elida Geisha won The Good Food Awards in San Fransisco, CA represented by Verve Coffee Roasters.

We invite you to indulge yourselves and try this one of kind coffee that, must certainly, will fulfill your highest expectations.

The Farm

The ultra-high elevation Elida farm  goes from 1,700m to 2,200m and part of it is located within the Volcan Baru National Park (VBNP) ( www.boquetecoffee.net/fincas.htm ) a protected ecological reserve and sanctuary for exotic plants, birds and mammals (like the tropical tiger). The farm has a total of 65ha of which 30ha are planted with Catuai, Geisha and a bit of Typica, the rest is private forest reserve or is inside the VBNP . Coffee in this farm is only grown up to 1 875m (6200ft), in this area of Panamá coffee does no grow higher than this elevation.

For several years we have offered the third-wave coffee roaster our super-specialty Elida coffees: Washed, Honey and Natural. Our 21 small roasters from all over the world keep coming back for their micro-lots. They cup and pick their preferred lots based on cup attributes. This 2016 season we did over 150 separate lots and are shipping each lot separated to our roasters in: Taiwan, China, Japan. Australia, Norway, Sweden, Korea, Hong Kong and the USA.

This coffee is produced under a unique world-condition for several reasons: first the farm is located at a very high elevation (one of the highest coffee farms in Panamá), it is grown in rich young volcanic soils, the temperatures are low, there is lots of fog and mist during the dry season, the coffee trees are surrounded by virgin-native cloudy rain forest, the nights get cold here thereby taking a tree from 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 years to start producing  (2 or 3 years longer to produce than average), these low temperatures also extend the ripening time 1 month longer (thereby the development of the bean). All these unique growing conditions show in a distinguished cup.

The Baru Volcano National Park is one of the highest volcanoes in Central America, with 14,000ha and 7 different climate zones depending on the elevation and we are part of it in both of our farm

Cupping Notes:

Jazmin, pomarosa, saturated sweetness, superior cleanliness, sparkling flavor that range from berry and citrus to mango, papaya and peach. A very distinct bergamon-like finish is typical in the cup profile.
