Sweet, winey and full bodied with notes of melon, citrus, berries and chocolate.
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” 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.
