This lot was carefully selected by the producers, Janson Family, from the highest point at
Los Alpes farm , called La Higa. " Higa" is a huge fig tree which is about...years old, which
stands tall at this coffee plantation.

Los Alpes farm is located on the Talamanca mountain range of westernmost Panama, NW of
the Baru Volcano, same mountain of the La Amistad International Park (Unesco World
Heritage site).

The rich volcanic soil and unique microclimate combined with optimal care of the geisha
plants produced these berries with a brix of 26 at the time of harvest of this lot, all of that
followed by a conscious selection of the best berries resulted on this outstanding lot which
got a score of 94, having 8 international judges scoring it 95 and above, inlcuding a score of
98 points!!!!

The Janson coffee farm is actually run by first and second generation of Janson family
members. Constantly focusing on improving quality, we have earned several BOP awards

with our coffees being always among the best, on the semifinal and final tables of the Best
of Panama.

Our focus is to produce specialty grade arabica beans of geisha, caturra, catuai and pacamara
varieties. The farm is sustainably run, mountin spring water is used for the washed process,
and managed with an eco-conscience mentality. We use several drying methods, sun on patio,
raised african beds, static dryers, drum dryers and many times a combination of two or more
of these methods.

At present we are also using different types of slow fermentation processes to get the most
out of the outstanding natural characteristics of the Geisha variety.
