About Panama Hartmann Estate Black Winey
Hartmann Estate is owned by the Hartmann family. Mr. Alois St. Hartmann (Luis Hartmann) was born in Czechoslovakia in 1891 which he abandoned as a young boy when the First World War began. He originally migrated to Pennsylvania, USA. At the age of 20 Mr. Hartmann travelled Panama and eventually decided to settled down in the province of Chiriqui, specifically in the Candela region where in 1912 he built a house and begin farming coffee!
Today, the third generation of the Hartmann family represented by Mr. Ratibor Hartmann continues to manage the estate along with 4 of his siblings. Each sibling is in charge of a specific operation on the farm. There is a warm family vibe at the farm and everything seems to work itself out. You can tell that this family have lived together all their lives.
This “Winey” lot is one of three process styles that we shipped from Hartmann Estate. Winey process is where very ripe (slightly darker than when cherries are usually picked) cherry is picked and sorted however the fruity ‘pulp’ surrounding the bean is left intact and sent to dry on African raised beds. These raised beds allow greater airflow during drying to help eliminate the risk of over-ripening, ferment and spoiling. The result is a incredibly fruit-driven and juicy-bodied coffee, with slightly lower up-front acidity when compared to a washed and even honey lot from this farm. Ratibor’s Winey continues to be one of our most popular coffees and we’re thrilled to be working with him again this year.
Panama borders Colombia and Costa Rica. Panama’s coffee producing areas are located in the regions around one of the highest inactive volcanoes of Central America, the Volcan Baru, Boquete, Volcan, and Renacimiento. Panama has a very unique microclimate and its surrounding land is full of rich nutritional and fertile soils, making these highlands perfect conditions to cultivate and harvest a great variety of special coffees.
