The Lamastus family from Panama has set a new record for naturally made geisha coffee. The natural coffee has again surpassed its category record in the Online Auction of the Specialty Coffee Association of Panama.

1000 dollars for a pound of coffee!

For the first time in the history of the contest, a pound of natural geisha from Elida Estate exceeded the $ 1000 limit. In 2018, the price offered for this brand was around $ 800.

Records thanks to a lot of passion and hard work

Wilford Lamastus said in an interview that "despite a lot of hard work and mistakes, the company has always remained passionate," and that's where success comes from. The customers of the family business are extremely satisfied, so it is not surprising that world records can be broken.
