Our newest Panama Geisha, Elida Geisha Natural ASD, is a very rare and special coffee grown high on the slopes of Volcan Baru National Park. Here, in the cloudy rain forest of a protected ecological reserve, is Elida Estate, part of the celebrated, century-old Lamastus Family Estates. Its various lots, each with a distinct terroir, benefit from a unique set of growing conditions – rich volcanic soils, cool overnight temperatures and seasonal mist and fog – that yield some truly exceptional coffees. One particular lot, the Torre Lot, stands out for consistently producing the highest-scoring coffees. Beans from Elida’s Torre Lot have won the elite Best of Panama competition three times in the past five years.

This year, we secured a portion of Torre Lot and have produced a limited edition of just 397 boxes. Not only does this lot comprise the best beans from the entire estate, it also represents the superior results of a meticulous, handcrafted processing technique. The natural anaerobic slow-dry (ASD) process is long and slow, involving fermentation of coffee fruits in an oxygen-free tank that preserves natural yeasts and other microorganisms. From here, the fruits are moved to drying beds under sunlight for more than 30 days. The intensity and complexity of flavours resulting from the natural ASD process are astounding. One sip of Elida Geisha Natural ASD is the delicious proof!

coffees in the highlands of Panama.

EVERY COFFEE TELLS A STORY

Today, the company comprises three individual estates: Elida Estate, El Burro Estate and Luito Estate. Each captures the potential of unique terroirs in distinct regions of Panama. Elida Estate has its coffee plantations at high elevations on the rich, fertile slopes of the Baru volcano, one of the tallest in Central America. Its Elida Geisha Natural ASD lot is at 1,775 to 1,800 m above sea level. The elevation, unique soils and cool, misty conditions, along with an expertly crafted production process, result in the highest-scoring, most award-winning beans ever crafted by the Lamastus Family Estates.
