Driven by the passion of sharing excellent coffee between excellent people. From Finca Auromar in Panama all the way to your cup!
Auromar Panama, is a Brenes-Eleta family project, devoted to the production of high quality Geishasand other superior arabica coffees, in a sustainable, and eco-friendly environment.
The Auromar Farm “Finca la Aurora” is situated in the highlands of Candela, Chiriquí, Republic of Panama.
The finca is comprised of 30.5 hectares (75 acres). The total farmed area is 14.5 hectares in the lower 2/3 of the elevation.
The rest, 17 hectares, will remain pristine highland tropical forest in the highest parts of the property.
The cultivated area has been painstakingly developed to strike a balance between coffee yields and forest preservation.
Shade is provided by endemic species of trees and high-altitude Hass avocado trees. As shade is much heavier than in other farms in the region (1-4), the area enjoys a stable micro-climate offering very little swings from day heat to night chill.
Also, because of altitude, the harvest begins late in December and ends in mid-March. The cherries take full benefit of the drop in humidity between December and January at seasons' change, and the sunny dry summer that runs through mid-April.
The outcome of such combination, forest, shade and late harvest is a limited-supply, highly complex beans in each harvest.
This is the second year we’ve purchased coffee from Finca Auromar. Having won previously the 2013 and 2016 best of Panama Competition, we believe that Finca Auromar best represent the classic profile of the high quality Panamanian Geishas.
