Gabriel de Dianous Jr. bought 24 hectares in Volcancito, Boquete’ in Chiriqui Provence in 1980 which is now Finca Irma. It was a cattle farm at the time and Gabriel had just retired from working on citrus farms in Florida when he planted his first coffee trees. Gabriel still manages the farm at 88 years old however a lot of help from his grandson, also Gabriel, keeps the farm running.
The farm is at an altitude of 1450-1525 meters, and the volcanic soil and optimal climate produces superior quality coffee. As well as the Geisha variety, which was planted in 2012, the farm grows Mundo Novo, Catuai, Bourbon, and Caturra. The coffee is shaded by banana and Ingas trees.
All of our coffee is handpicked with a special crew picking the Geisha beans. The Geisha beans are processed through a sun-dried natural on raised beds, which ensures a unique flavour.
