BARISTAPUNX PANAMANIAN GEISHA
BARISTAPUNX PANAMANIAN GEISHA
Let’s start with the usual, the coffee. Guarumo Farm is located between 1700 & 2000+ meters in Renacimiento, Chirqui province in Panama. The farm grows Geisha, Beloya, AF-2, Chicho Gallo, Mocca, & AR-36…a combination never seen before in Panama as most of these seeds were brought in from Ethiopia. The results speak for themselves.
Ratibor and Allan Hartmann are no strangers to awards, & this project is no different. Guarumo has won a plethora of amazing awards, including 5th in the 2022 BOP (Best of Panama) for washed Geisha category.
And yes, this is one of the washed Geishas. Hard as it may be to roast, We will do our very best to do it justice.
The coffee is all hand picked, fermented by traditional methods by Allan, & then very carefully dried on beds for 20 days, where the magical 11% humidity level is reached.
It’s an art, a science, a kind of magic.

Finca Hartmann is a family enterprise, in the 3rd generation and located in Santa Clara, Renacimiento. It consists of 2 farms – Santa Clara Finca Hartmann and Ojo de Agua, located between 1.300 and 2.000 mts above sea level with nearly 100has of forest reserves bordering on the Parque Nacional de La Amistad. The coffee is grown under the shade of native rainforest trees that have been there for many years. The Hartmanns try not to cut trees, they replant native trees and plantains to maintain the natural cycle and a healthy soil and fauna.
The finca, also called Finca Nuguo, is situated between 1.750 and 1.950 mts in the area of Jurutungo, Renacimiento, in the province of Chiriqui, nestled between a natural rainforest reserve on the one side and the border of Costa Rica on the other side. The location and environment of the finca is a very challenging one, with cold temperatures at night, lots of wind and rainfall. And even so, this very visionary, passionate and engaged person, Jose, managed to produce some incredible cups of coffee. Or, if we quote Jose, it is because of those rough conditions that the coffee production results in low productivity but an intense flavour. He says that the cold wind and rain that come from the Atlantic through the mountains dividing Panama play an important role in the taste of the coffee from Nuguo.
For the coffee farm he bought 500has from the Panamanian government and gave 100has of this land with virgin forest to one of his sons, Ratibor Hartmann, who was working with the US army in Panama City and turned that land into the Finca Hartmann coffee farm. In 1966 Ratibor married Dinorah Sandí from Costa Rica. Together they raised 5 children, Ratibor Jr, Allan, Alexander, Aliss and Kelly.
