Café Don Benjie Estate
The de Dianous Family arrived in Boquete in 1914 where Gabriel de Dianous purchased the first coffee farm in Bajo Mono. The family has been in the coffee business ever since. Dr Renan Esquivel, a very well-known Panamanian pediatrician, purchased the farm in the 1980s. He was a nature enthusiast, and he planted many exotic trees, plants and coffee varietals that are being preserved up to the present day.
The farm was purchased by Jose Benjamin de Dianous and Stefan Arwed Müller in 2011. Since then the plantation has been under constant renewal, aimed at excellent quality, taking care of the environment and the well-being of our workforce.
The beautiful coffee plantation Hacienda Bajo Mono consists of 33 hectares and is located in the Highlands of Chiriquí, north of the town of Boquete in the Bajo Mono Canyon, at the slopes of the Barú Volcano.
The valley of Bajo Mono with its special microclimate is known as one of the best regions for growing great quality coffee, as the region is blessed with volcanic soil, crystal clear spring water fountains, the famous mist called Bajareque, forming one of the many microclimates that makes the region famous for specialty coffee growing.
The coffee beans are hand-picked at their ripest stage, carefully selected and processed by varietal.
The coffees are processed in an Eco Mill with a very limited use of water in order to contribute to the environmental sustainability, always aiming for high quality in the cup in all the coffees they process. Part of the production is processed as Naturals. The coffee cherries are hand selected, processed anaerobically and carefully sun-dried on beds.
