Café Castelara

Family Owned Coffee


Finca Castelara has been managed by the Castillo Family since the 60s by Carlos Castillo Villarreal

In 1994, the management of the farm was transferred to Carlos Santiago Castillo and his wife Ana Isabel Arauz Guardia, the second generation of the family in charge. They began transforming it to introduce the cultivation of special coffees such as Geisha, Catuaí, Caturra and Pacamara.

The next generation has joined the management of the farm today with new ideas and processes that have allowed us to take our coffee to international auctions with awards and record prices in the sale of coffee. Our geisha has been awarded as one of the best in the world in national and international competitions, and today almost all of the production is exported to buyers in Europe and Asia. Ana Isabel Castillo Arauz, her husband José Ramón Varela Fábrega, Andreina Castillo Arauz and Carlos Santiago Castillo Arauz are the new generation of the family managing Finca Castelara today.


It has a privileged location at a height between 1600 and 1700 meters above sea level; rich in fauna, varieties of wild orchids, and with all the characteristics to develop tourism projects. Its height produces a quality coffee. Finca Castelara is a natural viewpoint where we can see all the district of Boquete, part of Dolega (Potrerillos), the Volcan Barú and even the Pacific Ocean.


Production At Finca Castelara we strive to produce quality coffee, with the use of good agricultural practices. Today the farm has quality coffee of the varieties: Geisha, Catuai, Caturra, and Pacamara.Our teams work with non-renewable energy (propane gas), which is a clean medium that does not cause pollution to the environment.We elaborate our own organic coffee pulp, in order to support the soil and, stimulating the micro and meso biological life of the soil. For us it is of great importance, the care of non-renewable resources such as water and soil to which we give an effective use.

Social Impact

By helping our collaborators, who are also artisans, to develop and refine their skills, design and create innovative products that we offer here, we also expand their economic opportunities. This, together with the support programs we offer to the indigenous people, translates into benefits for their families and an improvement in the quality of their life.
