About the coffee
This coffee is a Single Origin Coffee, composed of different beans from the farms of the Garrido family: Geisha, Heirloom, Catuai and Typica varieties beans from all over Boquete come together here. Garrido Estate, or "Cafe Garrido," is a family-owned company that focuses on growing high-quality specialty coffees and prefers mixed-crop cultivation. The coffee plants grow under the shade of grapefruit and orange trees.
The coffee beans are hand-picked during the harvest season, which stretches from December to March, and are then sculptured and sun-dried. The result is a very balanced cup profile with a medium body, lemony acids and flavors of dried fruit, blueberry and apple.
About the farm
The Garrido family coffee farm is located in the well-known coffee growing region of Boquete. The Garrido family owns several coffee farms in the area, all in different micro-regions: Alto Quien, Volcancito, Alto Lino and Callejón Seco. The coffee farms have been around for many years, and even though Teodoro founded Cafe Garrido, each one has a history that goes way back.
