The Lamastus Family

Elida

Robert Lamastus started planting coffee on the Elida Estate in 1918. He soon expanded down the slopes, purchasing El Burro in 1925, continuing his work as one of the first in Panama to pursue quality coffee. Elida is located mainly within the Volcan Baru National Forest Reserve, providing rich biodiversity and thick rainforest shade for the coffee trees here. Coffee is planted up to 2000 metres above sea level, while the highest parts of the farm are left untouched, preserving the diversity of native forest species. Nowadays, the Lamastus Family Estates are run by Robert’s grandson and great-grandson, Wilford and Wilford Jr.. The Wilford have continued the focus on quality at Elida with their focus on the most lauded of coffee varietals, Geisha.

Panama and Geisha are tightly connected, the iconic varietal had its breakthrough at Hacienda La Esmeralda, also located on the slopes of Volcan Baru. The conditions at Elida are perfect for the production of the highest quality Geishas. At the top elevations on the farm, the temperature often drops below 10 degrees by night, lengthening the cherry maturation phase by about a month, slowing development and leading to a further concentration of sugars in the fruit. This intensity and complexity continues into the cup, in part due to excellent processing.

The Elida Estate has been owned by the Lamastus family since 1918.

This lot is from the ‘Torre’ lot of Elida, located at 1800 masl. Torre is the top lot of Elida, located fully in the Volcan Baru National Park. Lots from Torre have consistently placed highly in the Best of Panama competition, and won outright several times. This lot is a single day lot from the late harvest, picked on the 21st of September 2022.

The cherries were picked at a very developed degree of ripeness, at a deep burgundy colour. They were then de-pulped, and fermented for 48 hours. The cool temperatures at Elida, especially at night, lead to this long fermentation, rounding out the cup profile and leading to an incredible sweetness in the cup. The coffee was then dried on raised beds for 18 days, before resting in a climate controlled warehouse until being sent to us in Copenhagen. Here, the crisp white florals have an incredible clarity, and the intense citrus aromatics carry into the cup, balanced by the deep and rich honey sweetness.

Four unique coffees

Fractal

This Christmas we’re releasing an exclusive bundle of coffees, a combination that showcases quality and depth of flavour. These four exclusive lots have been sourced specifically for this project, from our partners at origin. Produced by masters in the field, these four coffees push the boundaries of coffee flavour.

Washed Process

The washed process involves completely removing both the cherry and the mucilage from the outside of the parchment with the use of friction, fermentation and water. After being harvested, the coffee cherry is then sliced open by either a metal or a sharp plastic blade.

The two seeds (also known as beans) are pushed out of the cherry, which leaves the seed with mucilage as their outermost layer. It is essential in the washed process that all mucilage is removed from the seed which leaves only the flavour that developed in the cell structure of the seed prior to processing.
