Panama Berlina Estate

Bennetts Green Bean Update

Our recently landed specialty lots from the prized Berlina Estate in Panama are cupping excellently and have been very well received. Berlina Estate has won multiple awards within the specialty coffee sector, and is considered an ambassador of the genuine seed that was originally planted in Boquete.

Berlina Estate is located in the region of Horqueta in Boquete, Panama. The estate was founded by Mr. Segundo Diaz, a Colombian soldier who was sent to Panama to fight the separatist uprise at the beginning of 1900s. After a peaceful separation was achieved between Panama and Colombia, Colombians were given the choice to return to Colombia or settle in Panama. Mr. Diaz fell in love with Boquete and married a Panamanian girl. In the 1920s he decided to start a coffee plantation high in the mountains of Boquete. They built a small sugar cane mill that was run by a water wheel. They grew corn, and farmed chickens and pigs. After the coffee had been harvested it was processed using energy from the water wheel. The family built an attic to store the parchment coffee, taking advantage of the dry conditions created by the sun heated roof. Coffee became the main source of income for the Diaz family. By the 1930s the Berlina Estate name had become synonymous with quality coffee, and the association remains to this day.
