The Lamastus' Estates






Quality Assurance


Wilford Lamastus, owner, makes sure the quality of its coffee is the best


The Lamastus Family Estates have a quality assurance program unsurpassed: from seed to cup.

Every single batch/daily production of coffee is cupped several times until is shipped.

Seventy one-years old Thatcher (next to its mother in the picture) is the most knowledgeable processor of coffee in Panama. He has been growing, processing and exporting coffee all of his life.

Wilford is in charge of quality and manages the estates operations. He cups the coffee several times daily.
