Producer Story:

MOUNT TOTUMAS COFFEE is located in Tierras Altas, Chiriqui, within the Mount Totumas Cloud Forest nature preserve. Our farm consists of six lots grown at elevations between 1800 and 1900 meters, each utilizing the natural shade cover of the preserve’s native trees that formed part of a reforestation plan we initiated in 2010.
The secret to our award-winning coffee can be found among the ample ecological resources that our preserve affords us: a diverse variety of fruiting, flowering, and nitrogen-fixing trees among our coffee groves provide a welcoming habitat for birds, monkeys, and other wildlife, which in turn help keep our trees happy and healthy by providing ample fertilizer and pollination during flowering. Additionally, the surrounding forest regulates the climate and stabilizes erosion and soil moisture. We share a direct border with La Amistad International Park—a UNESCO World Heritage site, and Central America’s largest highland national park—so it is not uncommon to find tapirs and mountain lions within the habitat bordering our groves.
This holistic, ecologically-oriented approach to farming keeps our trees happy and healthy, and is the underlying philosophy behind every aspect of our operation—from seed to tree, and from bean to cup.
