STRAWBERRY | GRAPE | JUICY
I was introduced to Elida Estate in our first year of business: our friend used it in the US barista competition and it truly blew me away. The coffee was amazing, and the story behind the farm and their relationship with Verve Coffee Roasters was so inspiring.
At the turn of century, after working on the Panama Canal, Kentucky born Robert Lamastus met a girl and fell in love. He bought a farm In Boquete, Panama and named it after his wife, Elida. His family built on his legacy and Elida became one of the top farms in Panama.
Three years later, on my first trip to origin, I visited Elida Estate and met the Lamastus family. I spent a few days with Wilford, (Robert’s grandson), touring their farms, roasting samples and cupping coffees. It was so inspiring: the coffees, Elida Estate, Wilford’s hospitality and kindness.
It is truly an honor and a privilege to offer Elida Estate. This is a beautiful coffee with lots of juicy strawberry up front, a grape like acidity with nice heavy body.
