Every year we cupped the sample from Best of Panama auction, Los Cantares Gesha was always on the list we particularly enjoyed. And this year, we are very lucky that we are able to purchase 2 awarded Gesha lot directly from Los Cantares Estate for our Christmas boxset. Boxset included 2 seriously delicious Gesha, washed “Cantar Don Tito” and Natural “Cantar Dorado Ruisenor”.
Los Cantares Estate was originally established in 1929 . It was one of the first coffee producing and exporting farms in the Volcan region of the Chiriqui Province in Panama. The coffee estate is currently managed by its owner Marie Jackie Mercer Vallarino, and has been exporting coffee internationally for over 20 years.
Their Gesha is grown at the highest point within the farm: 1,650 meters above sea level, and its first harvest was 2012. These are the same plants that awarded the 1st Place in the 2012, 2nd place in 2014 and 2018 in Best of Panama competition.
