The coffee trees are grown on the slopes of the Volcán Barú National Park, which are fertile, welldrained, volcanic origin, and deep soils enriched with organic content. The coffees are cultivated in the region of Cañas Verdes, Boquete, in a humid and rainy microclimate typical of the tropical forest. The shade protecting the plantation is given by native trees that grow in harmony with abundant local flora and fauna, respecting the environment and biodiversity. Given its strategic geographic location, sunlight is a crucial element throughout the whole process. The plantation receives powerful solar radiation, interrupted in the mornings and sunsets by a soft tropical mist known locally as “Bajareque” and caressed by thick fog.
The virgin rain forests where the Abu Coffee plantations lie within make of its climate an extraordinary condition to achieve a unique combination of characteristics that make the Geisha one-of-a-kind coffee imbued with personality, intense juicy flavors and aromatic floral notes.
The cherries are hand collected in the optimum maturation point and then hand-selected. Then they apply a double phase process where the whole cherries are fermented for 48 hours in closed tanks mixed. Then coffee cherries are pulped and “dry fermented” for 72 hours before being fully handwashed with mountain spring water. Once the coffee has been fully washed, it is dried on raised beds for 15 days.
