Finca Lerida Coffee Estate

The reputation of Finca Lérida is as old as the first shipment of Panamanian coffee in history, exported to Germany in 1929. From its spectacular landscape, sprang a coffee of such high quality, that soon the consumer countries of aromatic coffee realized that Panama had other unique attractions, beyond the Canal. One of these was, and still remains, Finca Lerida.

This season, Finca Lerida is collaborating with Cafeistmo in the new edition of the Deluxe Coffee Box. We hope to work alongside the most renowned coffee farms in Panama, and keep launching amazing coffee experiences.

In 1924, engineer Toleff Bache Mönniche, along with his wife, moved to Finca Lerida. Here he built his house completely by hand in a Norwegian countryside style, and built the firstCoffee Plantation by gravity in Panama.

In 1929, Finca Lerida exported to Germany its first shipment of Panamanian coffee, and this began Panama´s high reputation as one of the exotic coffees of greater quality in Europe.

Finca Lerida is currently managed by the Amoruso Family, who coordinates the appropriate growth process of coffee, protect the lush virgin forest that surrounds the property and offer a genuine stay for all visitors to the Boutique Hotel Finca Lerida that is located in the middle of the coffee plantation.
