Coffee Story and the farm

  • In 2006, when José Gallardo began managing the farm, he saw the huge potential of the newly discovered Gesha variety which had been presented for the first time at the Best of Panama competition just 2 years earlier. José would take a brave leap by growing Gesha exclusively at much higher elevations, separating cultivars into five growing areas, each with a unique microclimate.
  • Over the next decade his vision and innovative approach transformed Finca Nuguo, into an award-winning farm and one of the largest coffee producers in Panama. They would go on to make their own appearances at the Best of Panama competition, taking the crown in 2015 and 2016, and placing consistently in the top five in following years.
  • Nuguo special coffee has been awarded at the Best Of Panama in 2015 version, with the 1st place in the Exotic Washed category, and in the 2016 version, with the 1st place in the Innovation category, 2nd place in the Exotic Washed category and the 2nd place in the Exotic Natural category. Their coffee has also featured in many barista championships over the years, appearing in winning routines consecutively from 2016-2017 in the USA, New Zealand, and the Philippines.
  • In 2021, Finca Nuguo sold for $2,568 a pound in the international auction of the “Best of Panama”, almost doubling the previous record of $1,300 set last year. In the recent tasting international judges, Nuguo Fermented coffee reached a score of 94.75 on a base of 100 points and they described it as a “coffee with fun flavors, where the sweetness of the cherry is mixed with the acidity of tropical fruits.
  • Today, Finca Nuguo continues to produce outstanding Gesha lots time and time again, presenting beautiful examples of what makes this variety so very special.
