LUITO GEISHA ESTATE
Name of farm: LUITO GEISHA ESTATE
Boquete, Chiriqui, Panama. (507) 6673-6703.
This is the northernmost farm of Boquete. It is located very close to the mountain range and part of the farm (not the coffee plantation) is inside the Parque Internacional de la Amistad (International Friendship Park). Because of its biodiversity, the PILA is a World Heritage Site (WHS) protected by UNESCO. Although there are many WHS in the world, most of them are man-made. There are only 225 natural World Heritage Sites and Panama in an area of 77,000 sq meters has three of those, PILA being one of them.
Being so close to the mountain range the rain pattern at this farm is unique and we get plenty of rain during the dry season. The constant rain maintains everything green and the coffee grows all year-round. Due to the rain and the microclimate this farm has a different flowering period than most of the farms in Boquete.
