Janson Family selection geisha washed comes from lot "El Plano" of the Los Alpes Farm.

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).

Harvested on the Cresched moon when the savia is going up, this helps on sweetness of the berry, and that is just one of the many details taking into consideration at the time of harvest together  with careful selection of only ripe berries.  However, the care of the plant and the volcanic soil and characteristic micro climate of the region are determining factors.

This particular lot ended on 10th place in the final round of the BOP with a 91.75 final score, receiving a 95.75 as its highest score by an international judge.
