Ojo De Agua
One of the pioneers on the producing side of coffee, Ratibor and his four siblings at Finca Hartmann have been wonderful partners of Novo for 10 years. Their experimentation with different coffee varieties and processing methods has helped bring some fantastic coffees to Denver, and their spirit of innovation has been emulated throughout Panama and elsewhere in Central and South America. They take great care of their land and frequently have environmental tourists visiting their farm and hiking through to the neighboring national park (La Amistad). For Novo this is the ideal of direct trade—rewarding high quality with high prices in a relationship that values trust, innovation, and sustainability in all forms.
