About this Specialty Coffee
The Lamastus Family has been producing coffee in Elida Estates for four generations since 1918. Elida Estate coffees are produced under a unique world-ecological condition: it is shade-grown, bird-friendly, and the farm is located at a very high elevation, in a microclimate with very low temperatures, the coffee trees are surrounded by the Volcan Baru National Park -a virgin native cloudy rain forest.
At the turn of the century, Kentucky born Robert Lamastus started an Arabica coffee plantation on a farm located at around 5,600 ft (1 700 m) above sea level in the skirts of the Baru Volcano in Boquete, Panama. At the time our grandfather processed and exported what is still today considered one of the highest-quality coffees in the world. Nowadays and three generations later the tradition continues, the Lamastus family still produces, processes, exports, and now roasts its own rare estate coffees.
