Finca La Mula Geisha Flowers

Finca La Mula with beautiful Geisha Flowers

My farm manager Kelly Hartmann called me half drunk and ecstatic during his visit to my farm in Panama. His picture tells a thousand words: the pollen-infused atmosphere of La Mula combined with the jasmin perfumed ambiance of these geisha blossoms would make any of us feel happy and joyful. These Geisha Queens of Coffee are truly in their annual prime. Coffee harvest looks very promising.


In 2005 I purchased some forested land on the slopes of the Baru Volcano near Boquete, Panama and that’s where we established Finca La Mula. The farm was planted by Graciano Cruz and we have well over 5,000 Geisha trees at this forest farm. Kelly Hartmann is responsible for the operational management and I’m very proud about our accomplishments in this fascinating environment.
