Finca Bonita Springs is located in Alto Lino, Boquete, Panama. It has been owned and operated by the Miró Family for over 80 years. The farm consists of 36 hectares of prime coffee-growing land slicing down into the heart of the Boquete valley. Water is its most abundant feature: 2 rivers, 4 streams, 5 natural springs and 2 waterfalls flow through and about the land, affecting its soil chemistry and its native flora and fauna. With the high rainfall and humidity of the valley, cold misty Atlantic winds coming from over the continental divide, as well as warmer Pacific breezes from the southern lowlands, the property possesses a unique range of natural microclimates. We were lucky enough to personally visit Bonita Springs, meet and talk to the owners, touch the coffee trees and have a very good insight to how they process coffee at the farm. This place is truly unique. Our coffee is a natural processed SL28 variety that was originally selected at the former Scott Agricultural Laboratories in 1935 from a single tree in a population called Tanganyika Drought Resistant in Kenya.
