Now in their fifth year of production, the dynamic father-son duo of Wilford and Thatcher Lamastus continue to isolate and cultivate the green tip shrub variation on their dazzling Elida Estate property in Panama. Much like the Evelia Maria Honey Gesha, Elida Green Tip is also a North American exclusive offering and yes, we squeal with joy every time we think about it. Sporting a trademark vibrancy that is not easily matched; this year’s lot carries perfume-like aromatics, a key-lime undertone, and a champagne-like body that serves as a fitting metaphor in celebration of outstanding Farmlevel impact.

December 18th is the last day to order online for on-time Christmas delivery.

  • Sourcing Information

    On the southeastern slopes of the imposing Volcan Baru - Panama’s largest volcano - Elida Estate profits from being situated in one of the most biodiverse pockets of Central America.

    Here, the Lamastus family had long been known for producing exceptional Catuais when they endeavored to plant Gesha seeds on their 1,800 MASL estate. After four-anda-half years of maturation, entering their first harvest, Thatcher and his son Wilford Lamastus observed a unique feature among his Gesha trees.

    The youngest leaves on the end of each branch exhibited either bronze, or green tips - a genetic pigmentation characteristic that varies by cultivar and habitat. Kindred truth-seekers, Wilford Lamastus and Verve co-founder Colby Barr sampled the separated seeds of the two plants only to conclude that the green-tipped plants produced a superior cup to their bronzetipped equivalents. Henceforth, Elida Estate would become the first known farm to isolate and cultivate “Green Tip Gesha”. Five years later, we’re honored to present the fifth vintage of a true testament to Farmlevel impact.
