Panama Finca Harttman climate is more than ideal for producing high quality Arabica beans. Coffee beans are grown in the nutrient rich volcanic soil of the region, and the micro-climate provides the farm with mild-temperatures year round.
The Hartmann Estate prides itself on their shade-grown coffee trees. This method of growing coffee not only helps protect the natural bird life, but also produces some of the sweetest and most aromatically pleasing coffee in the world.
Finca Hartmann is a family enterprise, in the 3rd generation and located in Santa Clara, Renacimiento. It consists of 2 farms – Santa Clara Finca Hartmann and Ojo de Agua, located between 1.300 and 2.000 mts above sea level with nearly 100has of forest reserves bordering on the Parque Nacional de La Amistad. The coffee is grown under the shade of native rainforest trees that have been there for many years.
Today Finca Hartmann is a family enterprise – each member of the family is passionately involved in the management and performs a different function in the growth, production and tourism of the farm. Coffee for them is a way of living, their culture, their family – a lot of work, but also a lot of love. Their employees come return every year, as do their buyers, because they like their vision: work together with nature, work the land without destroying it.
