ELIDA GEISHA WASHED 2nd place in this extremely tough competition. EGW started competing in the BOP 2014 and it has won the BOP 2016, BOP 2018, BOP 2019 and this BOP 2020 second place: Continuity, reliability and consistency.

The ultra-high elevation ELIDA ESTATE Farm goes from 1,700m to 2,060m, 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 Typica, the rest is private forest reserve.

This 2020 our Elida Geisha washed got 2nd place out of 37 lots that were submitted and this time it came from Aguacate terroir (last year same as the EGN ASD it came from Torre). Another one of or outstanding terroirs. It is located deep inside the Barú Volcano National Park, where the plantation is surrounded by virgin forest, native yeasts, beneficial microorganisms, unique micro-climate and the species that make it one of the best Terroir for Geisha in the world.



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.
