Acquired 8 years ago, this farm had 13 hectares of pasture and when bought it had a lot of sunflowers, so we decided to call it Los Girasoles. We have different coffee varieties such as Gesha, Caturra, Villalobos, Catuai and Typica. You can also find several fruit trees that allow us to find white-faced monkeys and a particular bird: the quetzal in this farm.
The whole family takes care of the coffee mill and farm management. The harvesting is done by Panamanian natives in the months of January to April.
