Janson Lot 328
Expect notes of orange blossom, tropical fruit, plums and elegant finish
The coffee no. 8 comes from one of the family estates of the Janson family in Volcán, Panama. They’re known for their commitment in improving their coffee quality through cultivating and processing and their farms are frequently seen on the top of the Best Of Panama score board!
Jansons’ first farm Hacienda Cafetalera was established in 1941, originally a cattle farm by Carl Axel Janson, an immigrant from Sweden. Since then, they’ve founded another farm Los Alpes, their own nursery and beneficio (processing plant), which was built in 1993. The beneficio is dedicated only for specialty coffee which helps to keep different lots separated from each other. The Jansons are also committed to improving and protecting the environment. Energy is produced by 400 solar panels, excess matter from processing is used as fertilizer and water for washed processing comes from their own springs.
This coffee is of the gesha variety and it’s grown at Los Alpes farm that sits on the slopes of Baru volcano in Talamanca Mountain Range. The volcanic soil, the altitude of 1700 meters and the special microclimate in between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans combined with optimal care of the gesha plants result in high quality cherries that are then hand picked and processed with the best practices and latest knowledge about fermentation and drying. The result is an elegant, complex and luxurious profile that we’ve all been accustomed to know and love gesha from!
