MIL CUMBRES

The finca name "Mil cumbres" means a thousand hills. it is an old cattle pasture which was converted into a specialty coffee farm. the access was created by activation an old timber trail, used to transport wood out of the forest. Mil Cumbres is owned by Mario Fonseca and Arturo Klein and coffee production is managed by Ratibor Hartmann. The first coffee from his finca was available in 2019.

It is located in Cordillera, an area near the town of Volcan, in the Province of Chiriqui, on the sides of the Baru volcano, between 1.600 and 2.000 mts. If the view is clear you can see all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Out of the total surface of 60hectares, 25hectares are used for coffee production. The rest is native jungle with its rich biodiversity, forming part of the Baru Volcano National Park. Varietals grown on the finca are Geisha, Pacamara, Mocca, Bourbon and some new varietals yet to come. The soil is volcanic and the annual rainfall amounts to 3000-6000 mm.

Coffee production on the farm follows biological methods, and even though there is no organic certification the use of chemicals is limited to some herbicides (“green line”) applied only punctually where necessary while the majority of methods applied are biologically friendly (manual labor, biological fertilizer and disease averters, etc.)
