Iris Estate is your window into the world of coffee cultivation and production. This co-owned and managed farm in the highest of heights in Panama exists to explore the possibilities of coffee agriculture, discover the depths of processing techniques and celebrate the true superheroes of the industry: the producers. The three owners of this estate want to share every aspect of what it takes to grow and produce the perfect cup of coffee that tastes like the terroir from which it grew. Iris Estate is here to celebrate terroir based processing, the work of the producer, and the trees as being the number one source of coffee quality.

Processing Details

  • Cherries are harvested perfectly ripe at 20-22ºBrix o
  • Cherries are carefully selected for a second time and separated by sections of the farm
  • Whole cherries are placed inside sealed tanks and filled with CO2 such that all O2 is pushed out with lactobacillus bacteria and specific yeasts to added to enhance profile
  • Cherries are left to ferment for an extended period of time in controlled temperatures
  • Cherries are removed from tanks and dried on a three tier, raised African bed system under controlled drying conditions at Finca Deborah
  • The Finca Deborah drying room controls temperature, heat, humidity and airflow to ensure cherries have optimal conditions to enhance the best flavours
  • Drying typically takes 20-25 days o Moisture content is reduced to 10-12% o Beans are stored in dried cherry pods in grain-pro bags to absorb more flavours from the dried fruit and stabilise the moisture levels and stored under controlled conditions at cool and stable temperatures
  • When absorption and stabilisation are complete, coffee is then hulled and selected for density, size, shape and colour before being lightly vacuum sealed ready for export
