At Royal we are privileged to have spotted a place called Finca Las Brumas. This 60-acre farm is located in the famed Boquete growing region on the border of Costa Rica. In fact, this place reminds us a lot of Finca La Amistad, one of our favorite Costa Rican suppliers. Las Brumas’ close proximity to La Amistad International Park, the largest natural reserve in Central America, brings a wealth of ecological advantages to this corner of Panama. César Araúz has been managing his family’s farm for over a decade and dedicates his efforts to preserving its pristine ecology. César relies on 6 year-round employees and another 60 seasonal workers from the Ngobe Bugle indigenous group who meticulously pick ripe cherries during the harvest. After harvesting, the coffee is depulped, fermented, washed, and carefully dried on covered patios and raised bed.
