The Lamastus, produce coffees in two different farms located in Boquete, Panama. El Burro Estate and Elida Estate. These two estate coffees are located in the highest area of the country in steep hills in the skirt of one of the highest volcanoes in Central America, the Baru Volcano. El Burro Estate is located between 5,200 and 6,500 ft (1.575 and 2,000m) above sea level and Elida Estate is the highest coffee farm in Panama located between 5,500 and 8,200 ft (1.700 and 2.500m) above sea level.
Both of these estates are planted with Arabica coffees in rich deep young volcanic soils and are kept in optimum conditions to develop the best quality coffee that the trees can produce. The cherries are delicately hand-picked, at strict full maturity, by native Ngobe-Bugle Indians in an area where our main objective is to keep the environment to its most pristine and natural condition. The coffee is then washed processed with most care to keep the rich flavour of the coffee. Then, the coffee is carefully selected, rested for 60 days in burlap sacks on wooden floors and then exported directly by the Lamastus family.
