Panama: Los Lajones Geisha Natural
Graciano Cruz, an experimental agronomist has created a farm at Los Lajones under perfect conditions to undertake research on producing exquisite and delicious coffee.
TRADITIONAL NATURAL PROCESS
The elevations define the farm as highland cloud forest with greater than 60% of the farm conserved as primary oakwoodland. Los Lajones has a strong biodiversity principle, focussing on botanic, birds, mushrooms and butterflies – all indicators of a healthy environment.
At Los Lajones the difference is all down to the meticulous attention to detail. Only perfect red ripe cherries are selected, which are laid out directly onto a raised African bed structure that permits air to circulate around the coffee. This speeds up drying to give an even and thorough finish and extremely clean, sweet flavour to the coffee.
TASTING NOTES Incredibly sweet coffee, mix and match of ripe fruits: pineapple, passion fruit, lemon, ripe cherry. Hint of coffee blossom and tea-rose in the finish.
