Description:    



 

The name KOTOWA comes from the native language and means "mountains".

Kotowa farms have consistently won many awards and has always had coffees in the final tables in BOP since 1996 when the first competition took place. Kotowa has also won the 2014 and 2016 Panama Cup awarded to the best overall coffee producer. 

 

Duncan farm is on the eastern slope of the Baru Volcano. It has a special microclimate because the farm gets Pacific rain from May to Dec and also a bit of Atlantic in the month of Jan-Feb. Duncan is at 1700m but being closer to the continental divide the temperatures can be lower than in other similar altitudes, lowering to around 12°C  at night. Duncan is in the eastern slope which is normally very sunny and dry because is slightly windy due to the Atlantic influence.  Geishas on this side of the mountain tend to do well because of the drier microclimates. They have very deep root system that can absorb water even in dry conditions allowing for more concentration of sugars.

Cupping Notes:

Jasmine citrus aroma, tangerine lemon acidity and pineapple sweet aftertaste.
