In the picturesque town of Boquete in Chiriquí, Panama, lies the estate JUMA, a name inspired by its passionate owner, Juan De Dianous. Sitting at an altitude of 1200 meters above sea level and spanning 10 hectares, this coffee oasis primarily focuses on cultivating Geisha coffee, with 500 trees averaging 5 years in age. Juan, a dedicated man of the land, has been immersed in the coffee world for 25 years. Though he's been managing Inmobiliaria JUMA for only 3 years, he's cultivated unique skills and knowledge. It all started with a few saplings he planted and tended to himself. The upkeep and sustainability of these saplings were funded by Juan, showcasing his commitment to quality production. But what's the secret behind his thriving coffee? Cleaning, fertilization, and soil amendments are crucial for the productivity of his crops. And even though he's never entered quality competitions, Juan takes pride in offering a coffee that, in his opinion, represents the best for the local market.

Challenges are bound to arise. From grappling with the high cost of supplies to maintaining the plantation, especially during times of scarce rainfall, every day presents a lesson for Juan. Yet, he perseveres, making coffee not just a livelihood but also an alternative source of income.

For Juan De Dianous, coffee is more than a drink; it's a way of life, a contribution to his country, and, above all, a passion that goes beyond the cup.



Chilled Cherry

The perfect addition to any coffee lover’s collection. Our first variant is the one you already know, using the natural process. After leaving the tanks, the coffee is dried with its cherry intact. This creates a sweet and fruity taste that’s perfect for those who prefer a lighter, more refreshing coffee. Our wet mill is located in Dolega, a district of Chiriquí, where temperatures range between 20° to 35° Celsius. For this reason, our expert craftsmen created a process where we could extend the fermentation period without damaging the embryo and avoiding alcoholic notes. The tanks are lined with jackets that enable the flow of cool water, so the cherries are kept at a stable, cool temperature.


Chilled Cherry Washed

Our second and new variant is Chilled Cherry Washed, starting the process with fully ripe natural cherries. After leaving the tanks, the coffee is depulped and then dried. We add inoculants and yeast during the drying process to  achieve sweeter profiles. This results in a rich and complex flavor that’s perfect for those who prefer a stronger, fuller, and creamier-bodied coffee  with citric-tartaric acidity. So, whether you’re a fan of light and fruity or rich and complex, Chilled Cherry has something for everyone.


Splash Cheery

The coffee that’s been crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail. Splash is made using a unique process of fermentation, resulting in a truly unique taste that’s perfect for coffee lovers. Using only the finest cherries, Splash undergoes a depulping and goes through a short aerobic fermentation process of just 24 to 48 hours, ensuring that the coffee retains its natural flavor and aroma. And that’s not all - our expert craftsmen also add a special blend of lactic acid bacteria to further enhance the richness and complexity of the coffee. The result is a profile where we aim to highlight the terroir of Panama’s volcanic soil as well as the characteristics of the Geisha and Catuai varieties. If you are more into the classic and elegant profile, give it a try and discover the traditional flavors of Panama.


Intrinsic Cherry

The coffee that’s taking the industry by storm! Our expert craftsmen have spent years perfecting the art of coffee-making, and the result is a coffee that’s unlike any other. Intrinsic Cherry is a natural coffee that undergoes a short fermentation process. After floating the cherries and quality analysis, the coffee is left to ferment overnight in aerobic conditions. The next day, the drying process begins. This process is carefully monitored to ensure that the coffee develops a silky body, phosphoric acidity, and delicious flavors of yellow fruits. In 2023, we’re taking Intrinsic Cherry to the next level. We’re reducing the acidity of this profile, allowing us to enhance the coffee’s description and develop even greater complexity. The result is a coffee that’s even smoother, richer, and more delicious than ever before!


Dynamic Cherry

The coffee that’s changing the game! Our expert coffee makers have created a coffee that’s not only delicious but also unique in its creation process. Dynamic Cherry undergoes an anaerobic fermentation in cherry between 72 to 96 hours in large blue tanks with air traps. This process allows the release of gases accumulated during the fermentation, which promotes the growth of yeast and lactic acid bacteria. This meticulous process produces a coffee with a profile of red fruits, silky and round body, and malic acidity. So, if you’re looking for a coffee that’s dynamic, complex, and full of body, look no further than Dynamic Cherry. With its unique profile and expert craftsmanship, it’s the perfect addition to any coffee lover’s collection.
