RnD R09 "Kotowa" Wine Process

Orders are roasted on Tuesday and dispatched from Wednesday

This Geisha variety is grown at 1050 meters above sea level on a farm called Duncan. It is on the eastern slope of the Baru Volcano, very fertile with minerals on the Boquete Valley. This area has a special microclimate where it gets the early sun in the morning and the mist that comes from the Atlantic ocean that condenses over the continental divide mountains at 2500 meters.

The name come from the process we give the beans that bring forth sweet ripe fruit notes that resemble a fine wine.
