The Hartmann family patriarch, Alois St. Hartmann, was born in Czechoslovakia in 1891. In 1914, at the onset of First World War, Hartmann emigrated to Pennsylvania in the United States where he changed his name to Luis Hartmann. Hartmann later purchased land in Chiriqui, in Panama and built a house. On that land, Hartmann began growing the first coffee trees on the Hartmann Estate.
Direct descendants of Luis Hartmann own and manage the estate today. Third generation, Ratibor Hartmann manages the business and each of his four siblings oversees a specific aspect of the farm. There is a warm family vibe at this estate and issues are resolved smoothly in a way that you can tell that this family has lived together all their lives!
For this Black Winey process, the coffee cherry is selectively hand picked only when it's much darker and riper than typical. This ensures that sugars are not only at their optimum but a little fermentation/drying has actually occurred while on the tree itself. After picking, the cherry is floated and visually inspected to remove damaged or over- and under-ripes and then laid in thin layers on African raised beds. Coffee is usually not turned during the first 24 hours of drying but then raked regularly afterwards. The result is sensational; ripe plums and vanilla on the palate with a sweet, smooth and subtle winey acidity.
