Helmed by Ratibor Hartmann, a third generation coffee producer, the Hartmann Estate is a family business. It consists of 2 farms – Santa Clara Finca Hartmann and Ojo de Agua, located between 1,300 and 2,000 metres above sea level with nearly 100 hectares of forest reserves bordering on the Parque Nacional de La Amistad. While its altitude may not be as high as some of the other coffee estates in the region, coffee here are grown in nutrient rich volcanic soil, and the micro-climate provides the farm with mild-temperatures all year round. Their method of shade-grown coffee has not only contributed to the conservation of the flora and fauna on their land, but also producing some of the most amazing coffees in the world.
The Geisha is low-yield varietal, which were originally brought from Ethiopia and made their way to Panama because of their natural resistance to coffee rust. Its turning point was in 2004, when Price Peterson took Geisha grown in La Esmeralda and presented it to impressed coffee professionals.
Hartmann Estate first began planting the Geisha varietal in Ojo de Agua in 2005. The Hartmanns are extremely meticulous in caring for and tending their Geisha trees. The trees regularly pruned and its soil packed with nutrients for healthy growth. The cherries picked with a demanding schedule - as many as 10 times per harvest, instead of the usual 2 to 4. They started producing washed Geisha,and vver the years they also experimented with honey and natural processing, which has resulted in cups with a myriad of new flavours and exotic qualities.
For the Hartmann family, every harvest is an opportunity to explore, refine and push the boundaries of coffee processing.
