Bonita Springs - SL28 - Filter
What a juicy coffee, when Kenyan variety SL28 meets Panama with Finca Bonita Springs, you get magic.
In the cup, it is floral, juicy, vibrant and fruity, expect pomegranate, plum and blackberry.
On our recent trip to Panama, we found this coffee while visiting the Hartmann family. We discovered Bonita Springs farm managed by Yessie Hartmann, the daughter of Ratibor.
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 micro-climates – and sits, incredibly, 10 minutes from the center of the Boquete town.
The Bonita Springs farm is relatively low in altitude around 1250 masl so the process is key to achieve such high score coffee. The coffee is processed Natural with a long drying making the coffee so sweet.
