Farm Story : JANSON COFFEE FARM
Farms: Hacienda las Lagunas and Los Alpes
- Janson Coffee Farm is a family-owned hacienda that was established in 1941 by Carl Axel Janson, an immigrant from Sweden. Originally a cattle farm, Carl's sons - Carl, Michael, Ricardo, and Peter - established Janson Coffee in 1989. Our two coffee plantations, Hacienda las Lagunas and Los Alpes, are located on the slopes of Tizingal and Baru volcanoes in the Talamanca Mountain Range.
- Hacienda las Lagunas, also known as "Las Lagunas," is situated at an elevation of 1,350-1,400 meters above sea level (masl) in the Volcán region. The name of this farm is derived from its lagoons and wetlands. It is located west of the Barú Volcano and has fertile volcanic soil and natural springs. Surrounding the coffee plantation are areas of a natural reserve, which serve as barriers to protect the plantation and provide a habitat for various bird and wildlife species.
- Los Alpes, named after the Swiss Alps, is located at an elevation of 1,600-1,700 masl in Tisingal, on the Talamanca mountain range of western Panama. It borders the La Amistad International Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that extends across the border into Costa Rica. This park is home to diverse species, including the famous Quetzal bird.
- Combined, our two farms cover 100 hectares of land and cultivate the arabica varieties Geisha, Caturra, Catuai, and Pacamara. We meticulously select these specialty-grade arabica seeds from our own nursery to ensure the highest quality coffee. At Janson Coffee Farm, our goal is to achieve quality production in harmony with the environment. We maintain nutrient balance in the soil using enzyme microorganisms, avoid the use of pesticides and herbicides, and micromanage our plantations to ensure traceability and quality control. Forests separate different lots of the coffee plantation, providing natural barriers against pests and protecting the region's flora and fauna.
- We prioritize environmental sustainability at Janson Coffee Farm. Our farm and processing plant are powered by 400 solar panels, and excess waste from our processing is reused as fuel or fertilizer. We also plant seeds from our forests in our nursery for reforestation and preservation of water resources. The water used in our wet process comes from our natural springs. We are fully committed to both improving and protecting the environment.
Beneficio (Processing Plant):
- Our beneficio, built in 1993, is exclusively designed for specialty coffee processing. Equipped with advanced technology and artisanal methods, we can separate coffee by quality and origin. We employ both natural and wash processing methods to achieve the best quality. Our green beans are stored in a temperature and humidity-controlled facility to ensure their freshness and quality.
- Janson Coffee Farm is currently managed by both the first and second generations of the Janson family. With a constant focus on quality improvement, our coffee has been recognized with several BOP (Best of Panama) awards, consistently earning a place among the best in the competition.
