Lot GW-06: Elida Geisha Vuelta Washed

ELIDA ESTATE has placed in the top 3 scores at the BOP for 6 of the last 7 years. In 2020, the Elida Geisha Natural ASD initially tied for fourth place before emerging from the tiebreaker at sixth.

Wilford Jr won the title of National Champion at the Brewer’s Cup, successfully defending his title from last year. He also placed in the top 5 in Open service at the World Championship in Boston alongside the debut of the EGN ASD process. He eagerly awaits another chance to compete with the best of the best at the next World Championship.

The EGN ASD has several records: BACK-TO-BACK WINS at the BOP, breaking our own records in 2019 and 2018. A roast of EGN ASD submitted by Dragonfly Coffee holds an unprecedented score of 98 points at Coffee Review, the highest ever awarded in its 23 years of reviewing coffees. At the Geisha Natural Category at the 2020 BOP, 51 lots were submitted. Our Elida Geisha Natural ASD and our El Burro Geisha Natural ASD both placed in the top 10 (at 6th and 9th, respectively), demonstrating our commitment to continuity, reliability and consistency.

The ultra-high-elevation ELIDA ESTATE Farm goes from 1700m to 2060m. Part of it is located within the Volcán Barú National Park VBNP ( LamastusFamilyEstates.com), a protected ecological reserve and sanctuary for exotic plants, birds and mammals. The farm has a total of 65ha of which 40ha are planted with Catuai, Geisha and a bit of Typica; the rest is private forest reserve or is inside the VBNP.



The coffees are produced under a unique climate, soil and location. The farm is located at a very high elevation (one of the highest coffee farms in Panamá)in between the Caribbean (35km to the north) and the Pacific (55km to the south). The coffee is grown in rich young volcanic soils at low temperatures. An abundance of fog and mist during the ripening season greatly draws out the process, allowing the exotic attributes of our GEISHA to develop to its fullest potential. The coffee trees are surrounded by virgin rainforest populated by a great number of beneficial microorganisms: yeasts, bacteria, etc.

Nights at the lowest edge of the coffee’s temperature tolerance allow the trees to produce for upwards of 6 ½ years (2-4 years longer than average), as well as extending the ripening time by a month, which is reflected in the development of the bean’s rich flavor profile. All of these unique growing conditions show in a distinguished cup.

This BOP, as in 2019, none of the Lamastus Family lots submitted were rejected by either the local or the international panel of the Juries.
