Panama Elida Estate Natural

We are excited to feature another delicious Catuaí variety coffee from Wilford Lamastus’ farm, Elida Estate. 

Processed using a variation of the natural method that the Lamastus family refers to as anaerobic slow dry, this nuanced and sweet single origin selection is some of the very best coffee that Central America has to offer.

Origin Story

Wilford Lamastus

We are excited to be featuring another delicious Catuaí variety coffee from Wilford Lamastus’ farm, Elida Estate. The Lamastus family consistently places well in the annual Best of Panama competition, and their coffees are widely regarded as some of the best in the world.

The high elevation of the farm and microclimate of the region extends the ripening period of the coffee cherry, slowing development of the coffee seeds within. This slow maturation tends to yield denser coffee beans with more complex flavors.

Why We Love This Coffee

This lot was processed using a variation of the natural method that the Lamastus family refers to as anaerobic slow dry. After harvesting, the coffee cherries are left to macerate and ferment in oxygen-free barrels before being slowly dried on shaded raised beds. The result is a coffee that displays a great deal of sweetness and intensely fruity flavors.

Good Coffee, Better Planet

Located in the Boquete growing region, Elida Estate has been in the Lamastus family for three generations. Shade trees have been planted throughout the farm and are maintained to protect the coffee and provide a bird-friendly habitat to the many native and migratory species in the area.

We treasure our relationships in the global coffee community and invest in projects at origin to support our partners in their commitment to environmental sustainability and social welfare. We also invest in reducing our day-to-day impact, through initiatives like energy-efficient Loring Smart Roasters to reduce carbon emissions per batch by 80%.

As a certified B Corporation, we are a leader in sustainable practices that impact people and the planet. This third-party certification requires us to demonstrate transparency and accountability throughout our supply chain and quantify the impact our business creates for our employees, the community, and the environment. We are proud to be part of this community working together toward one unifying goal: using business as a force for good.
