In 1941, Carl Axel Janson immigrated from Sweden and began a cattle farm on the top of Talamanca Mountain Range which has now evolved into the renowned Janson Coffee Farm. On this farm they have established high quality varietals of Catuai, Caturra, Pacamara and Green Tip Geisha. The rich volcanic soil and unique microclimate combined with careful hand selection and processing has resulted in several Best of Panama awards.
The Janson family have committed 100% of their efforts to improve and protect their environment. 400 solar panels were installed to produce energy for the farm, and all excess matter created through processing is reused as fuel or fertilizer.
This special Green Tip Geisha Lot 349 has undergone an extensive fermentation for 96 hours, then sun dried for 7 days. This has resulted in a sweet and complex cup with fruit forward notes. Think of juicy floral lychees, caramelised pineapple, purple grape jelly and rockmelon, with a smooth dark chocolate fudge like texture.
This year many farming countries in Central America have suffered greatly by the impact of COVID-19, furthermore they have been hit by catastrophic Hurricanes resulting in major loss and damages. $2 from each bag of this coffee will be donated to Rebuilding Los Pozos.
Los Pozos is an agrarian mountain community in the highlands of Panama where coffee farmers, cattle ranchers, and milk producers live a tranquil, hard working life - until the storm hit. Over the course of five days, Eta dumped 15-25 inches of rain causing deadly mudslides, powerful rivers to break their banks, and bridges to collapse. The area is now completely isolated with no point of entry and more than 17 washed out areas of the winding mountain, rocky, road. All funds raised for Rebuild Los Pozos will go directly towards rebuilding homes and repairing infrastructure.
