Farm : Finca Deborah
Producer : Jamison Savage
Country : Panama
Région : Chiriqui
Altitude : 2000 m
Varietal : Geisha
Process : The process starts with harvesting perfectly ripe Geisha cherries reading 21-24 on BRIX. The cherries are then carefully selected for a second time before processing. After selection, the cherries are pulped, leaving a certain percentage of fruit on the grain. It is then tanked for an extended period with constant monitoring and cataloging of PH, temperature, and CO2 levels. Ambient temperatures are monitored and controlled to ensure linearity in the processing. After the required time inside the CO2-infused tanks, the coffee is removed, then placed on shaded, raised African beds. Direct sunlight is avoided as the intense UV and heat can cause cracking in parchment. Temperatures, heat, and humidity are controlled inside the dry houses and are carefully maintained within specific parameters. When the coffee has dried to approximately 11%, it is bagged in grain-pro and stored in Bodega, where temperatures are cool and stable. This seasoning process is critical to Finca Deborah’s quality control. “Reposo” or rest provides the coffee an opportunity to settle and equalize its moisture content while absorbing more flavor from its shell or parchment. After the requisite rest, the coffee is hulled and sorted by size, density, color, and shape.

In 2017 and 2024, we visited Finca Deborah, the farm of Jamison Savage, located in Chiriqui, Panama. When you see the coffee trees in the forest, the care taken to pick the cherries, to process the beans, you understand why these coffees are so amazing and pure.
