The Hartmann family are considered one of the pioneers of specialty coffee production in Panama. Their story starts two generations ago with Alois Hartmann, who settled in Panama in 1912 all the way from the historical region of Moravia, today a part of the Czech Republic. It was his son, Ratibor, who established what we know of today as Finca Hartmann with 100 hectares of virgin rainforest he inherited from his father. Today, the land has been divided into two farms, Santa Clara and Ojo de Agua, and is shared by Ratibor’s five children. The rainforest has been preserved with the coffee grown under the shade of the canopy, and the family continues to plant native trees to ensure the ecosystem's health. The land is famous for bird watching, with around 300 different species recorded, and their coffee is bird-friendly certified. This excellent washed geisha lot is the crown jewel of the farm, with its fantastic aroma, bright acidity and creamy mouthfeel, proving the hard work and dedication of the Hartmann family.
