For December, we are proud & excited to bring this naturally processed marogogype from the famed Finca Hartmann estate in Panama. A coffee that we first discovered at Phil&Sebastien’s roastery in Calgary, AB on our Canadian travels – this coffee represents everything that is unique, characterful & deliciously complex in the word of specialty coffee today.

Finca Hartmann technically consists of 2 farms – Santa Clara Finca Hartmann and Ojo de Agua, located between 1300 and 2000mts above sea level with nearly 100 hectares of forest reserves bordering on the Parque Nacional de La Amistad.
The coffee is grown under the shade of native rainforest trees that have been there for many years, the preservation of which remans of the utmost important to the family who place environmental sustainability at the heart of everything they do.
“From the beginning, since my parents started with this farm, they have worked the land with a lot of love and respect. We are following in their footsteps, we love this farm, we love what we do, despite the difficulties one might face in the market, and we intend to pass this passion on to our children.” Aliss Hartmann
“My father always linked the coffee production to the conservation of the environment.” Ratibor Hartmann.
Growing a variety of Catuai, Caturra, Maragogype, Pacamara, Typica, Bourbon, Pache Geisha – we selected this natural marogogype not only for its incredibly BIG ripe juicy sweetness that stems from its natural processing (think bursting flavours of black jelly babies!) but also because we rarely come across super well prepared & tasty marogogype coffees.
It’s very easy to gravitate towards the fabulous geishas grown in Panama but we’ve often found that so many of them simply just don’t live up to their hype & price.
The coffee also works best with an extended rest period after roasting of at least 10 days.
