About the Farmer (From CCS)
When a farm and its owner have a reputation and following like Finca Elida and Wilford Lamastus, it's almost impossible to 'stock'
such coffees. Instead, the few coveted lots we receive from Elida each season are booked by roasters who send in their requests
early in the harvest season. The estate is one of the highest located
coffee plantations within Panama and coffee is shade grown in rich volcanic soils. More than half the estate is surrounded by private
forest reserve and Volcan national park, home to many native species of plants and birds (over 200 species). Shrubs receive fungicide
and hand-applied chemical fertilizer 2-3 times a year, and no herbicides are used. Robert first met Wilford and his family 10
years ago when he was hunting (as he usually is) for unique coffees produced by people who possess that magic combination of ambition, merit and a long-term vision. The Lamastus family met
all of these criteria in spades.
