1924, engineer Mönniche finally retired from the Panama Canal, and along with his wife, Julia moved to Finca Lerida. Here he built his house – entirely by hand – in a Norwegian countryside style and built the first Coffee Plantation by gravity in Panama.
Aside from this, he designed and patented the “sifon” a device made to separate good beans from the bad. This device is now is used worldwide by many coffee plantations, and it is still working in Finca Lerida, where Mönniche’s old processing plant still processes coffee of excellent quality.
