The Hartmann estates are a family enterprise founded in 1940 by Ratibor Hartmann Troetsch. The coffee varieties used on the farms include: Typica, Caturra, Catuaí, Bourbón Paché, Pacamara, Maragogipe, & Geisha. The farms are certified Bird Friendly and they use recycled parchment from the cherry to fuel their drum dryers. In addition, the compost for the farm is made from the pulp and the outer skin of the cherries.
The town of Boquete is located on the Caldera River in the western most Chiriquí Province in the lush Central Mountain Range of Panama. These mountains are covered by primary and secondary hardwood forests, an extraordinary fauna diversity, fast flowing rivers, national parks and forest reserves. It lies approximately 35 miles south of the border of Costa Rica. Because of its high altitude and fertile soil, the main export of Boquete is coffee. In addition, It's scenic location and natural environment make it popular with Panamanians and attracts tourists from all over the world. The tallest landmark is the nearby Volcán Barú, a dormant volcano which is 11,500 feet above sea level. Hikers enjoy a relatively easy hike up and over the volcano, along the Sendero de los Quetzales, which runs from Boquete up to Cerro Punta and Volcan, on the other side of the volcano.
Many Central American coffees are grown in select mountainous regions of altitudes between 4,500 and 6,000 feet above sea level. Typically Latin American coffee-growing regions describe their finest Arabica coffees as being either Strictly High Grown (SHG) or Strictly Hard Bean (SHB). The low temperatures and high altitudes aid in producing a slow maturing fruit as well as a harder, denser bean. A Strictly Soft Bean (SSB) is grown at a lower elevation and will mature at the same rate, but have a much less dense body.
