About LaMastus Family & The Elida estate
With an international reputation in the coffee industry for record breaking coffee prices (officially this estate still holds the record for highest priced coffee ever sold), and a dedication to prized botanical varietal Gesha, the Elida estate and the LaMastus family now own and operate 3 farms in the Boquete region of Panama. High elevation, rich volcanic soils, unique micro climates, microorganisms beneficial to coffee production, unique coffee yeasts, fungus, and fog and mist during the dry season resulting in low temps at night result in an unparalleled environment for the ripening of the coffee fruit.

Gesha coffee, sometimes referred to as Geisha coffee, is a variety of coffee tree that originated in the Gori Gesha forest, Ethiopiathough it is now grown in several other nations in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. It is widely known for its unique flavor profile of floral and sweet notes, its high selling price, and its exclusivity as its demand has increased over the years.

While there are many varieties labeled gesha (or geisha), the Panamanian Geisha has a distinct and verifiable genetic fingerprint and is seen as the benchmark.
