Mi Finquita - Caturra - Filter
We are very happy to feature the farm Mi Finquita, the experimental farm from Hartmann. For this lot, we chose a beautiful Caturra that is so clean and well processed that it will make you it's a Geisha.
In the cup, you will find a complex layer of flavours, starting with Red Grape followed by a fresh Orange and finishing with Oolong tea.
Mi Finquita is a project founded by long-term coffee professionals and coffee producers Ratibor Hartmann and his wife Tessie. Ratibor is one of the siblings of Finca Hartmann, so coffee is practically in his blood. His answer to the opportunity of the growing specialty coffee sector and the increasing demand of customers for specially produced lots of coffee was the project of Mi Finquita. Using their contacts to other coffee producers and smaller farms and their knowledge of coffee production and processing Ratibor and Tessie process and help produce coffees from a handful of farms and sell them under the brand “Mi Finquita” which means “My small farm”.
The farms are located in and around Los Pozos, in the Chiriquí Province of Panama, between 1.650- 1.900 meters. They currently produce varietals like Caturra, Bourbon and Geisha. The climate is mild tropical with temperature as low as 4°C at night and sometimes even frost and ice. The annual averages are 18 °C during the day, 15°C during the morning and a maximum of 26 ° C in the afternoons during the summer.
In the production of their coffees they keep in mind the need to differentiate themselves in a market as competitive as the specialty coffee market, and more than producing coffees they call it “designing” coffees, applying science, traditional and innovative fermentation methods, always with the clients’ needs and wishes in mind. The results are a serious of limited specialty coffee lots, with exotic flavor profiles.
The management of all the farms is done in harmony with the environment, with ecologically friendly products used in minimum quantities and only in cases necessary.
