Type: Single Origin
This naturally processed coffee comes from the farm of Finca La Valentina located on the foothills of the Baru volcano in the community of Horqueta, in Boquete, Panama. Back in 2012, our founder Pam had put her best foot forward at her first barista competition with an irresistible Geisha from this estate. They would also become our first direct trade partner, a relationship that continues till today.

We recommend grinding the beans before brewing as freshly ground coffee tends to have a better flavour and aroma. However, you can still opt to have your beans ground by us.

This coffee is roasted-to-order on Monday and Tuesday (excluding public holidays). If your order is submitted before 12pm on Friday, your order will be placed in the roasting schedule of the following week and dispatched in the same week. However, we do roast a small batch of 2 different single origin coffees for our subscription orders weekly. If this coffee is available, your order may be fulfilled within 2-5 working days. You'll receive an automated email with a tracking number when your order has been picked up by our delivery partner.

IMPACT-DRIVEN COFFEE PARTNER

Efrain & Benjamin Osorio

Finca La Valentina is a family-owned micro-estate farm run by the Osorio brothers in the Boquete region of Panama. Only 12.5 hectares in size, the farm prides itself on adhering strictly to a laboriously manual, pesticide-free regime. Little wonder then that their Geisha microlot had placed first in the 2011 Best of Panama competition. This coffee was processed at Casa Ruiz, a highly reputable coffee house in Panama committed to family and community development, as well as strict environmental standards.

IMPACT

The approximately 25,000 trees on the farm are directly managed by both of the Osorio brothers, with the support of a native family who also live on the plantation. On top of a house and full medical benefits, the farm also ensures that the children are properly schooled and not exploited for any form of child labour. To top off the estate’s commitment to progressive practices, they also work regularly with three other families from the community year-round and eight to ten during the busy harvest season. Clean and safe living quarters are provided for the temporary workforce, with a natural well on the estate itself allowing for running water and sanitary conditions.
