This farm was bought in 2013 from a neighbor of the town. It’s name is in honor of our great-grandfather Ricardo Calderón, better known as Cayito Brenes.
The cherries are picked by Panamanian natives from January to April.
The entire Calderón Castillo family works in different positions in the mill and in the management of the plot.
Last year was a very special year! We won first place with the same Gesha and our coffee was able to achieve a 300$/lb price, breaking COE price records to date.
We also obtain first place in 2011 with the farm La Estrella. With every win my father, don Luis Ricardo Calderón Madrigal, helps a family of our community building them a house.
Varieties of coffee in the farm: Gesha, Caturra, Villalobos, Catuai and typical trees such as avocado, sweet lemon and tangerine.”
