Lot GN-16: Abu Coffee Geisha Natural

ABU COFFEE is cultivated in HACIENDA CAÑAS VERDES located in the region of Cañas Verdes, Boquete, in a humid and rainy microclimate typical of the tropical forest. Coffee trees are grown on the slopes of the Baru Volcano National Park, which are fertile, well-drained, volcanic origin, and deep soils enriched with organic content.

The average altitude is 1550 meters above sea level. The shade protecting the plantation is given by native trees that grow in harmony with abundant local flora and fauna, respecting the environment and biodiversity. Given its strategic geographic location, sunlight is a crucial element throughout the whole process. The plantation receives powerful solar radiation, interrupted in the mornings and sunsets by a soft tropical mist known locally as "Bajareque" and caressed by thick fog.  ​

Harvest season begins in summer, approximately in December and extends until March, months when the humidity drops, which, combined with the natural shade and the Bajareque mist, achieves the perfect balance for the maturation process. As a result, the cherries develop their maximum potential, optimally intensifying the sugars, and enriching the bean's flavor.​

The virgin rainforest where the ABU COFFEE plantations lie within make of its climate an extraordinary condition to achieve a unique combination of characteristics that make our Geisha and Catuai one-of-a-kind coffee with a strong character, complexity, and intense flavors.​

Producer Story:

ABU COFFEE was named to honor the memory of our father, José Guillermo Luttrell Tedman, the third generation of coffee producers, and to continue his dream of achieving what he considered the best-balanced coffee cup; a Geisha raised with the highest standards of quality. ​That is why "ABU" (short for ABUELO, GRANDFATHER IN SPANISH), as his grandchildren used to call him, represents the legacy of this visionary and passionate lover of Boquete and specialty coffee that we want to preserve for the generations to come.
