Guarumo Coffee Farm

Guarumo Coffee Farm is located in Santa Clara, Renacimiento, Chiriquí Province, at 1.750 meters. Varietals produced at the farm currently are Geisha, AF-2, Chicho Gallo, Mocca, AR-36 and Beloya, a combination not found anywhere else in Panama so far. Most of these seeds were brought in from Ethiopia trying to give them a “new home” on this farm in Panama and so far the results are outstanding.

The climate on the farm is a medium and high mountain tropical climate. Due to the high elevation the temperatures at night fall very low – average temperatures in that area are 17.4°C at 1,700m and 14.8°C at 2,300m above sea level. Mountain rains are strong in the lower part and decrease with height. Rains of mist or spray called "bajareques" are frequent. These harsh conditions make the plants work very hard in the growth and production of coffee cherries, resulting in extraordinary flavour profiles, very different to similar varietals planted in a different / lower location.

The farm was founded 3 years ago at the initiative of Allan and Ratibor Hartmann and their families, with the idea of applying and implementing their experiences in coffee production and processes to an own, small farm located at high altitude, planting it with special varieties and applying artisan processes targeting the current demand for specialty coffee markets worldwide.

There are 1 family member and 3 permanent workers employed at the farm, with harvest helpers coming on during harvest season January to April.

The farm management follows strict biological and ecological principles, meaning coffee production is done in conjunction with nature. If chemical products are applied, they are only “green line products”, but due to the altitude their use is very limited. The whole farm was planted with fast growing shade trees to provide sun and wind cover for the coffee plants.
