Janson Coffee farm is a family owned Hacienda established in 1941, originally a cattle farm, by Carl Axel Janson an immigrant from Sweden. Our coffee plantations are located on the Talamanca Mountain Range on the slopes of Tisingal and Baru volcanoes, the average altitude is between 1350 and 1700 meters, volcanic soil. We have our own nursery where we select specialty grade arabica seeds for our seedlings: green tip Geisha, Catuai, Caturra and Pacamara.
The Janson coffee farm is actually run by first and second generation of Janson family members. Constantly focusing on improving quality, we have earned several BOP awards with our coffee being always among the best, on the semifinal and final tables of the Best of Panama. In 2019 our geisha natural lot from Los Alpes received the 2cond place on the Best of Panama with an average score of 94, having received 95 and above by 8 international judges.
In Janson farms quality production with harmony is the goal. We keep a balance of nutrients in the soil using enzyme microorganisms, no pesticides, no herbicides among others.
The farms are micromanaged in lots for traceability and quality control. Plantations are separated by forest which serve as natural barriers against pests and also protect the natural flora and fauna of the region. The environment is important for us.
400 solar panels produce the energy for our Farm and Plant, plus all excess matter from our processing is reused as fuel or fertilizer.Seeds from our forests are planted in our nursery for reforestation and protection of our water resources.Water from the springs is used for our wet process.We are 100% committed to improve and protect our environment.
