Coffee Tour at Finca Lerida
Established by Tollef B. Mönniche in 1922 and purchased by Alfred Collins in 1957. Finca Lerida is one of Boquete’s oldest and most traditional Coffee Estates. Located in the Highlands of Boquete, at an altitude of 5,500 feet, on the foothills of the Baru Volcano, this beautiful and traditional coffee estate offers optimum conditions for growing premium mountain coffee. The ample rainfall and sunny, dry harvesting season promotes ideal production of this Arabica. Mr. Mönniche designed and constructed the first “beneficio”, processing plant, functioning with water and by gravity, and designed and patented a coffee siphon which would be used in “beneficios” throughout Central America and other countries in the world. Lerida’s owner guided coffee tour takes you from the plantation through the process, roasting and brewing finishing with a cupping session.
