BIODYNAMIC COFFEE CONSULTING

Finca Deborah

BOQUETE VOLCAN, PANAMA

 

Here above you can see 2 pictures of Geisha coffee, taken on March 6, 2017

at Finca Deborah, Boquete, Panama.

Bottom left picture: Biodynamic farming (started mid-July 2016)

Bottow right picture: conventional farming.

After only 8 months and when compared to the conventional area, the Biodynamic part already displays a greater vitality which can be noticed notably through the glowing and lustful aspect of the leaves, as well as a beginning of vertical habit. 


The Biodynamic coffee cherries were noticeably more aromatic and floral, with a longer and more complex finish.

World Barista Championship 2016

 

Berg Wu of Simple Kaffa in Taiwan has won the 2016 World Barista Championship in Dublin, Ireland. Wu becomes the 17th coffee professional to earn this title, in an international tournament held each year since 2000.

 

Berg Wu competed at the event using a Geisha variety coffee grown at Finca Deborah, a coffee farm located in the Volcan region of Panama. The farm, owned and operated by fourth generation Panamanian Leslie H. Freitag, is located at 1900 meters above sea level and specializes in Geisha variety coffee, a rare and revered coffee type. This remote farm uses solar power for all practices and is located within Panama’s Chiriquí Province.
