FINCA LA AURORA is located between 1570 and 1770 MASL in the highlands of Candela, Chiriquí, Panama. FINCA LA AURORA is comprised of 30.5 hectares. The total farmed area is 14.5 hectares in the lower 2/3 of the elevation. The rest remains preserved forest.

Because of altitude and the microclimate from the forest, the harvest begins late in December and ends in mid-March. The beans take full benefit of the drop-in humidity between December and January at season´s change, and the sunny dry summer that runs through mid-April. The outcome such combination, forest, shade and late harvest is a limited-supply, highly complex
coffee, very consistent every harvest.

The Auromar Geishas:

All the Auromar production is hand collected at the peak of ripeness.
Harvesters are paid a premium and a bonus well above the industry standards so to carefully pick only the ripe cherries. After collection in the field, the beans are micro selected upon arrival at the mill, from here the Auromar Geisha is processed either as a regular Washed or processed as Natural.





Coffee and cupping details


This year, with selected beans from our heavily shaded Lot 4, we developed the Catalina Natural an anaerobic process coffee. On a very competitive final round, Catalina came fifth in the BOP. Is important to note that the first five places of the geisha naturals came from the Geisha highlands in the westernmost side of the terroir. The coffee is a creamy cup with the classic umami notes from the fermented process creating a funky combination of florals and sweet-sour fruits like pineapple and plums.
