Washed Geisha Group & Natural Geisha Group
Founded in 1918, Elida Estae (Elida Estae), when celebrating its 100th birthday in 2018, also successfully won the double crown of the Best of Panama (BOP) competition in the Washed Geisha Group & Natural champion. It can be said that it is The following year, Elida Estae won the double crown again. The double crown was already a record-breaking BOP, not to mention that the double crown was the second year hegemony, which directly erected the Elida barrier of BOP. With the blessing of various historical records, in 2019, the international appraisal team awarded 95.21 points to win the championship. In the international real-time bidding, the historically high price of 1029 US dollars per pound was immediately divided up by international buyers.
This time the airlift introduced the latest addition to the 2020 production season, and it is also the same treatment that won the championship in 2019-natural anaerobic slow drying (natural ASD). After picking the ripe red-purple coffee cherries, they are first fermented in a sealed container for 4-5 days. The owner, Wilford Ramastus and his son, penetrate the micro-control drying speed, the growth and activity of specific types of microorganisms, and at the same time The degree of type of fermentation. Slow drying and sun drying are time-consuming and more often require the owner to spend more time and heat, but slow drying enables the coffee cherries to develop the best water activity in this process, and the full flavor development can show the coffee beans The best flavor potential, Erlai raw beans can maintain the flavor for longer during storage.
Located in Panama, the Lamastus family, located in Boquete, a well-known specialty coffee producing area, has three branches: Elida Estate, El Burro Estate, and Luito Geisha Estate. The characteristic manor is currently run by Wilford Lamastus and Wilford Lamastus Jr., the third and fourth generation manor owners. The coffee of the Lamastus family has been passed down for a hundred years.
Wilford shared that the ability to produce super specialty coffee of excellent quality is due to the following inherent advantages:
1. Fertile volcanic soil makes
2. Microclimate weather changes
3. High altitude planting environment
4. Excellent virgin forest
5. Very distinctive micro batch
El Burro Estate
It is also located in the Boquete Specialty Area with good mountains and rivers. More than half of the planting area in this area is contained in the Baru Volcano National Park, so it can maintain a fairly primitive ecological environment. Volcano Baru is one of the highest volcanoes in Central America. Due to the difference in altitude, there are more than seven microclimates in the entire volcanic area. The coffee planting area of Donkey Manor is about 1800m above sea level, the temperature is low enough, and there are still clouds and mist in the dry season, and there are virgin forests as shade, and the night is cold, so a coffee tree needs four years It takes half to five and a half years to start producing fruit (two to three years longer than coffee trees planted in a normal environment), and the maturation of coffee cherries can be delayed for about one month, and the development is more complete.
