Priscilla called this lot "Trailblazing" because they believe that this innovative process done by Bambito Estate is the beginning of a new era for their natural anaerobic coffees.
Bambito Estate won 1st place for their 2021 submission "Avalanche Of Flavor" in the coveted Best Of Panama competition, selling for an astonishing $1,502 per pound at auction! Each year, Bambito Estate Geisha is one of the coffees we look forward to tasting the most because they produce Geisha like few places on Earth can. We are humbled to bring you a remarkable anaerobic natural process Geisha, a sister to the 2021 winning "Avalanche of Flavor" lot. We are the only roaster in the US to get this lot of coffee so you can't find it anywhere else!
"Our production is very small. We pay very strict attention to the harvesting process. Only expert pickers harvest our geisha plantations, permanent workers that have been on the farm for many years. Our lots No. 4 and No. 5 are Geisha; any other Geisha tree in the other lots is marked with a red ribbon.
We give harvesters weekly seminars about the picking process and the color of the correct bean to be harvested, Brix grades are taken randomly during the day. We even have a weekly reward for the best picker.
Even though Bambito Estate is a small farm, we do our best to be an example for other farms. We recycle, we have a Summer school for our worker's children, and we sponsor our local primary school with breakfast all year around, to name a few things. Every Friday, we have our plantation Foreman talking about different subjects of interest.
We are a small team, but I feel very blessed and grateful for each one of them."
About Bambito Estate
"In 1945, Alberto Sitton Rios acquired a farm in the mountains of Bambito, Chiriqui Province, Panama. The farm in Bambito represents Alberto Rios's passion and his commitment to continue a legendary family tradition. Much of what makes Bambito Estates one of the best coffee producers in Panama is its near-perfect climate for coffee cultivation. Located near Volcan Baru (an inactive volcano and Panama's highest point) and in between two national forest parks in Chiquiri Province, Bambito Estate's coffee is comprised of three coffee varietals (50% catuai, 45% caturra, and 5% typica) and is grown at an elevation that ranges between 5,350 and 6,000 feet (1600-1800 meters) above sea level. The combination of varietals gives this coffee the rich, full body associated with Central American coffees."
