After visiting Panama we couldn't pick just one coffee! In addition to the la Gloria, we are excited to bring back coffee from the Hortigal Estate. Finca Hortigal has been family owned since 1920 and today is completely owned and operated by women. It sits between 1,400–1,600 meters above sea level, in the highlands of the Boquete region and grows 100 percent Typica cherries.

On their 34.5-hectare estate, Eira Maria Suarez and her daughters apply fertilizer with “precision technology” to maximize yields while minimizing production costs and waste. And at the end of each harvest day, coffee cherries are weighed and sent her brother's nearby beneficio (processing mill) on the road between Boquete and the City of David.

At the mill, the cherries are washed and sun-dried on patios before being transferred to drying machines, to ensure consistency. The mill carefully follows the processing protocols instructed by Dona Eira Maria; after processing, the coffee is stored in the warehouse to rest until its “attributes and distinctive characteristics are developed,” say the Suarez women.

The beneficio’s warehouse is built with Ternium, which helps to regulate the humidity and temperature inside the building.

Hortigal Estate enjoys views of the Volcan Baru and Horqueta (Hortigal) Mountain — the two highest points in Honduras — and benefits from rich, volcanic soil, native shade trees, diverse bird populations and unique microclimates. These have allowed the estate’s coffee trees to grow between 10 and 12 feet tall, with dark green, almost blue-ish, leaves.

The Suarezes say that they maintain strict farming and maintenance guidelines each season, in order to guarantee consistency and an optimized production. “The farm,” they add, “is a legacy we hold dear and aspire to build upon each day.”

**Don't Forget! These beans are green right now! We need you to place your order, so we can roast it especially for you and ship FRESH on Tuesday . Wait, tell me more…

At Treeline we like to keep it fresh. All coffees ordered are roasted, packaged and shipped on demand each week on Tuesdays. Orders must be placed before 5 a.m. PST in order to have your coffee shipped that week, because as much as we like to think we are awesome - we are not awesome enough to predict what you might be ordering.

All orders after this time will ship the following week. If this seems like a SUPER long time to wait for caffeine (don't worry, we get it) please leave us a note and we will do everything in our caffeinated power to sort you out. 

Due to our cafes being extra needy, we roast some coffee other times in the week as well - if your coffee happens to be the same coffee that they are getting, consider yourself a winner-winner-chicken-dinner because we will probably ship earlier then we just told you we would.
