Grown in the Cañas Verdes region of Boquete, this coffee is a Geisha varietal. This variety grows in the humid and rainy type of climate. The steep slopes of the Barú Volcano National Park are where one can find farmlands that sow Abu Coffee. The fertile lands which offer rich content in terms of nutrition and excellent drainage, pose as the most suitable type of land. The plantations also help to reduce soil erosion.
Located at a height of 1,550 MASL (meters above sea level) these plants are protected by the shade which is provided by trees that naturally grow in the region. This crop loves to adapt to the region and mixes well with the local Flora and Fauna. Any person who knows coffee would know how essential sunlight is for the crop. The locality of the farm makes it geographically possible for the farm to receive great amounts of sunlight. It is interrupted by spurts of mists that keep the climate cool.
The climate of the region makes it extremely suitable for the coffee crop to grow well. It is very less likely that one finds the right combination of the soil and climate for this variety of coffee. This area allows the coffee to be juicy and aromatic with notes such as jasmine, floral, bright, spicy, mild young herb and lemongrass.
Its Geisha aroma profiles is quite eclectic: fresh, sweet mandarin, crème brule, very intense sweetness, sugar cane, honey, caramel, chocolate, pistachio, green apple, stone fruit, tropical mango, coconut, pineapple, strawberry with a hint of blackberries and peach White.
