Mi Finquita is a project founded by coffee experts and producers Ratibor Hartmann and his wife Tessie. Ratibor’s answer to the opportunity of the growing specialty coffee sector and the increasing demand of customers for specially produced lots of coffee was the project of Mi Finquita. Using their contacts to other coffee producers and smaller farms and their knowledge of coffee production and processing Ratibor and Tessie process and help produce coffees from a handful of farms and sell them under the brand “Mi Finquita” which means “My small farm”.
The farms are located in and around Los Pozos, in the Chiriquí Province of Panama, between 1.650- 1.900 meters. They currently produce varietals like Caturra, Bourbon and Geisha.
In the production of their coffees they keep in mind the need to differentiate themselves in a market as competitive as the specialty coffee market, so they telk of “designing” coffees, applying science, traditional and innovative fermentation methods, always with the clients’ needs and wishes in mind. The results are a serious of limited specialty coffee lots, with exotic flavor profiles.
